Question

I am a 60 percent disabled vet, who is 100 percent unemployable and grandfathered in for dental care in West Haven Connecticut. My question is regarding full mouth dental implants. My lower teeth are gone due to grinding in my sleep and extractions and my upper teeth are basically filling and  a bridge. I want to know if  the Veterans Administration will pay or do a full mouth replacement for me. I would prefer Implants upper and lower to false teeth.

Anyone know the answer to the above and what the VA. would say or do or pay for? Would They help pay for Clear Choice ?

Hi William MC, you go to West Haven? We are practically neighbors; I live 80 miles away. Actually, I  usually can go to Newington for a lot of stuff, and is an hour away. If you are "grandfarthered in" for dental, do you mean your disability is related to your mouth and teeth, so the VA has paid for implants and other dental work in the past?  If it is service connected, I believe you would be placed in Priority Group 1. This has more info  https://www.va.gov/health-care/about-va-health-benefits/dental-care/

I would expect your VA doc's office can tell you what group you are in and whether or not you would qualify as well. Let us know how you make out.
