Colorado Springs, Colorado Resources for Low-Income Dental Care

friendshelpingfriends started this conversation

Many publicly funded and private trust funds provide some assistance for dental care for low-income individuals. Please understand that, as a rule, these agencies pay only a portion of the usual fee and rely upon dentists donating the remainder of their usual charges for services. For this reason not all dentists can be expected to participate in the programs listed below.

it's getting bad
My tooth has cracked in half. I had a root canal years ago, and after it fell outI have not had the money to get it repaired, and it has been decaying in my mouth for over two years now. Because it is partially missing, my other teeth have shifted in my mouth dramatically. I need to get the tooth pulled before it kills me.

I am disabled.I had good teeth until I started medication,within a yr. my teeth either became infected or broke off at the gum line.I am finding it hard to get help to (clean house) as a couple of dentist have put it,then replace them with dentures.pulling them is not so expensive but oral surgery,then dentures is way out of reach.
