Dental Care - 60% ?

Question

Hi,

I cracked a tooth tonight while eating dinner that needs Dental Attention tomorrow. I'm currently rated 60%, and low income. Can I show up at a V.A. Dental Clinic and get this tooth taken care of???

Throbing tooth wants to know.

Thanks,

PJ

At 60 % SC there is no dental care provided.

Some may argue that if it effects a SC'd condition the VA will take care of it,

I say - good luck on that one.

Fair enough Carlie, thanks for the rapid response; I'll just find another way to get it fixed.

ping,

I had a tooth fracture last week and I'm probably looking at 1 K to fix it :-(

Just glad I do have the cash but sure would prefer to spend it on fun

rather than a danged tooth !

The dental clinic will do emergency care and will stabelize the tooth until you can get treatment elsewhere. I think you have to be there when the open.

If you got the money try and save the tooth. You only get one set in life after childhood. I cracked one once. I had to get a root canal and crown. It costs me but I still have that tooth. The VA may want to pull it. You don't want that if you can afford to save it. If you pull one tooth the opposing tooth starts to grow and can screw up your bite.
