There are plenty of people out there who just can’t afford to shell out the huge amounts that are associated with getting your teeth alright. Oral health is important to all of us and at some point or the other we do need to go to a dentist. There is free dental work available out there but you will really have to hunt it out. It is not something that is in abundance for sure. However, if you persist and research well enough you will find it. What must you to do get yourself free dental work so that you do not have to shell out the big bucks from your pocket.

Look for dental schools which are associated with local colleges and universities. Find out the procedure for any free dental treatment that they offer. Most of these dental schools offer free dental care so that their students are able to gain the experience and expertise required in these procedures. Nevertheless, you need not worry as these students are always supervised closely and the way they are working on your mouth is closely monitored. Their professors are actual seasoned dentists who are guiding them in every stage.

Once you find yourself such a dental school, go ahead and schedule an appointment immediately as your turn might take a while to come. Even amongst these dental schools there are some that offer certain procedures free of cost whereas the others don’t. Scout around for a school that is offering the kind of procedure that you are looking for free of cost. You might not find all the procedures under one roof. Hence, you might have to get your teeth cleaned at one dental school and go to another one to have your tooth crowned. However, all this is worthwhile as you will end up getting quality treatment absolutely free of charge.

Another option for you is to find out state provided health insurance which will bear the total cost of your treatment. Contact the agency that administers health care for your particular state. They will be able to guide you about the procedure to be followed for applying for a government healthcare in your state. They will want to find out about your income and assets to gauge your financial status and to see whether you are eligible for the state help. Once you have filled out the form you might have to wait a while before you get to know whether you have been approved for the free dental work.

The moment this is done you will have to find out a dentist who is close by and who accepts government health care insurance. You can ask for a list of these affiliated dentists. You can also call up dentists’ offices to find out whether they do accept these state health insurance schemes.

It might take you some time to find a dentist who accepts this as most dentists only accept a small percentage of such patients hence, they might be already booked. Nonetheless, do not give up and keep on calling until you find the dentist.Once you have got yourself an appointment ensure that you go for it as it might be a long wait until you get another.

  • Nobody would ever know the self esteem issues associated with an unhealthy smile. Sometimes I don't feel like living anymore. I'm 51 and in great health , a non smoker, I work hard and eat right. I went to a terrible dentist who did botched work on my upper teeth when I was in my 40s and had some extra money. Now I'm by myself, living alone and living with the terrible results of terrible veneer dental work. I have been wearing a temporary bridge for over a year. The temp cost me 1,000. It took forever for me to save for it. Soon I will have to get rid of the temp. as it will only last for a short time. It should have been replaced a long time ago. Nobody knows when they meet me that I don't have a smile. I feel like I live a lie everyday. Because I don't have a smile. I have drilled down little pieces of snagged teeth with a temporary bridge covering them. In the mean time I floss all the time and brush, rinse and try to keep my gums as healthy as I can in hopes that someday soon a miracle with happen and I will get the implants or permanent bridge that I so long for.

  • Nothing would make me happier to have the most beautiful smile I used to have. I pray all the time just to to have the self confidence to smile. U don't know how important it is until u can't take a picture or laugh without covering your mouth. All I can do is hope some day someone will find it in their heart to yep me finance my dream come true... Gina E.

  • It is difficult to find absolutely free dental treatment but you can get cheaper dental treatment by visiting dental schools near your place. Treatment is done by students in dental schools under the supervision of experienced dentists and quality of dental treatment provided at various dental schools is not bad either. State dental societies some times provide assistance for dental treatment. Your health insurance may or may not cover the cost of dental treatment.
