  • say that it does hurt... Our Mainecare will cover dental in an emergency and all that is to most dentists is if you are in pain.
    My hubby and I thought that it wouldnt cover at all and he just had to have a tooth removed and is on some pretty strong antibiotics because we let it go too long.
    Good luck!

  • Badgercare in Wisconsin covers dental for ALL people on it. You could be getting too much calcium and it is causing your teeth to be too soft or have calcium deposits on your teeth. Don't let it go too long, gum and tooth disease can lead to other health problems.
