Hello, I am helping my son find dental help. He has no insurance and is a temp worker. His jaw was broken in 3 places when he was 18 and ever since then his teeth have broken off and turned black he has no molars whatsoever as they are broken off at the gums and the rest are slowly falling apart he needs to have them all pulled and dentures made. can you help me find either free dental or a dentist that is willing to take monthly payments.
Thank You

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

I would suggest you to first get a clinical evaluation done by a Dentist , take an OPG x-ray.
Infected tooth can also be root canal treated and saved permanently.
Tooth which are mobile, root stumps are to be extracted and replaced by a fixed and removable denture.

Depending upon the x-ray tooth which can be saved can be root canal treated, and remaining can be extracted and replaced.

I suggest you to enquire for any Charitable Dental Trust or a Dental School in the nearby place where you can get your treatment done at reasonable rates or even free of cost.

Hope this helps out.

Regards...

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.
First of all the broken jaw has to be approximated using splinting/intermaxillary fixation methods.
oNce the jaws are intact,please proceed with the teeth saving treatments like rct.,splinting.
Remaining missing place has to be replaced with denture.
An opg radiograph will help to give you the feedback.
Take complete course of antibiotics.
Avoid mouth opening too widely.
Tough mouth exercises has to be avoided.
Take care.
