Dental Help

I don’t have any dental coverage at my current job. I need to get two of my wisdom tooth removed and two more probably removed as well. Out of the other two, one decayed completely last summer and i was in severe pain and all i could do was take Advil because I cant save much after paying bills. The other one is on the same path.

What are my options? It costs to be poor, doesn’t it? The more I delay the worse it gets. I am even scared to go to a dentist to hear the bill.

Are there any supports for dental help? I am 26 and all I have is a health card. No insurance or any fancy shit like that. Are there any dentists who would be willing to take monthly payments? Any recommendations?

    You can visit the Emergency Room (ER) for a dental emergency (such as a tooth abscess). However, the ER will only be able to treat you if the underlying condition is health-related. The ER will bill you through your health insurance, not dental insurance.

      And because it’s a health risk, usually abscessed which is poison with a direct path to your brain or your bloodstream they have an obligation to treat you at the emerg.

    Call Cambrian and Boreal College. Go get your teeth examined and cleaned then go from there. They won’t pull out teeth but will help steer you in the right direction.

    Ontario Works has free dental care for low-income adults. Call to ask if you may qualify.
    It will definitely get worse if you leave it. You need a dental assessment to find out what needs to be done and in what order. Tooth decay can affect your general health and even cause severe health effects in some cases. Also worth it to look into private insurance for future dental work. I have always taken excellent care of my teeth, however due to health issues and medications my teeth have been cracking, breaking and needing work. In the last few years 2 crowns and 1 implant have cost over $7000…get to a dentist. Call a few to ask if they will accept payment plans
