I have 21 teeth left & need dentures. Was told at initial mtg with oral surgeon that I should have the bone grafting done by him for each tooth @ 200 each. My dental insurance wont pay for this. Without this part, I can barely pay for the rest of my out of pocketcosts, (approx $1,800.)This extra $4,200 means I must forget the entire dentures, because I simply cannot afford it. The dr wont do the work until he's paid in full. When I told his insurance/payment dept, she suggested that I just get some done, maybe the bottom teeth.
She also pointed out, that he didn't refuse the surgery if I passed on these grafts all together. So, my question is how important are these, is he trying to push an unnecessary procedure on me? I just dont have any resources for this cost, but am gravely concerned of the future consequences if I skip them totally. Please give me your advise. Thank you so very much!!!
