Cheap dental work

Does anyone know where you can get cheap dental work done? Any programs or something that will help pay for it? I thought about the dental school but with something as big as this is I don't know if that is the route I want to go. I have enamel hypoplasia so I have always had issues with my teeth no matter how well I took care of them. Years of grinding my teeth in my sleep hasn't helped the process either. I'm at the point now where I am in pain every single day and struggle to sleep most nights. It looks like the best thing to do at this point is just get dentures to save myself from all the problems that are still to come. I hoping over the next 3 months I can have about 3k-4k saved up but I doubt that's enough to have all the teeth taken out and get a set of dentures. My plan is to get implants or implant dentures one day but as of right now I just need something to get by and make the pain stop.

Guy I used to work with went to Mexico for his dental work, one time he ended up with infected spinal fluid, took him months to recover, almost died. So, probably not there.

Yeah I like my spinal fluid just how it is.

my friend's father got cheap dental work done while he was in the philippines


Got some infection in his mouth that spread to his brain and he ended up dying


 

Sleep with a properly fit night guard. Easiest fix ever.

When i was fresh out of college I went to a dental school to get impacted wisdom teeth removed. It was brutal, but cheap.

Do you know anyone with a pickup truck? Get a ball hitch, some monofilament fishing line, and a bottle of whiskey.

Im a little past that point now. I've never had enamel on some of my teeth so they are brittle and get cavaties very easily. My dentist told me he has patients who have the same problem who have dentures before 25. 

My coworker went to some free type community deal to have his teeth pulled.......well one night I look at my device in the ER and see that he's my patient (just a minor support role job in the hospital we both had). I walk into the room and his cheeks are like a fucking chipmunk, fucking HUGE He said he had a massive infection after having them out at the community place. Had to have some work done by the hospital, dont even wanna know what that cost without insurance.  

 

I have had my teeth cleaned by a local college student, it went well, just VERY time consuming, they even did a pano x ray. 

I can't tell you where to get cheap dental work.

I can tell you as someone who has had dental issues from chronic acid reflux since childhood...

Don't fucking wait. Take action now. It gets worse. Far far worse.

Find a dental college, the students need patients to work on for their course. They are supervised by a Dr. I needed a root canal, my dentist wanted $1000 even with my insurance, I paid I think $150 at the dental college.

When it comes to teeth man a loan may be something you’d wanna look into.. if you’re in real pain I think a loan would be worth it. That shit is expensive as fuck what you need to do is go see a normal dentist, get him to do xrays, get copies and find how much he would charge you to get shit done.. then go call a few offices and ask them what’s kind of deal you could make. 
 

some office will let you do payment plans, so a bit upfront and a bit each month. More than likely you’ll have a number of visits, nothing is getting done in one trip. 

Thailand has world treatment and is very affordable.

I was reading about it and it seems that sometimes they prefer to do it all at once. They will pull them all and then place the dentures which somehow helps the healing process of the gums. Then you come back and get them adjusted to fit exactly right when everything is healed.

yep, thailand has world class, usa trained dentists/ medical profesionals. super cheap as well.
a girl i know got lasik eye surgery for usd$1000 for both eyes, it was in the #1 clinic in bkk, all the celebrities use that hospital.

However, u might be shit out of luck as i doubt anyone will be making international travel arrangements this year

Listen up... Every single one of you. There is one answer here and it will blow your mind. 

 

I had 2 root canals/fake tooth, several cavities, 2 cleaning, x-rays, and more done for $1500 which included the cost of the plan. By some of the best dentists and hygienist I've ever been to. One was even the instructor of the school but she was at a private practice too.

 

Anyway, it's called......

 

LIBERTY DENTAL PLAN. look it up and sign up asap. There's no catch. Not hidden fees. No surprises. May not be available in all states. They just negotiate rates that are mind blowing. You choose your own dentist from providers in the network. It seems very much like insurance but it's not. You are fucking welcome. 

 

Don't ever ask about dental again. This is the best answer. Promise. I tried everything talked about previously, its not even in the ballpark.

my friend went to india a couple years back to have work done. Said he saved about $60,000. But he was there for like a month, and then again for a couple weeks.

Said the dentist was from england and basically specialised in Americans coming over. The office helped with travel and lodging as well.

My girlfriend did her dental schooling in philly she said on clinic days they were lined up down the block and often fights

how old are you? Dentures just seem like a terrible idea to me but I could be biased

my mom knocked her front teeth out in her early 20’s ( she’s 79 now)

they said best option at the time was dentures, to this day I think she regrets it

I knew a guy in Vegas back in the day who was so poor that he would do his own dentistry..no lie. I actually named a band I was in Witch Dentist after him and his oral antics
