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.

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.

It's to late for me now, but I sure as heck wished I had took better care of them earlier in life! For me, it's been like a domino effect. Every time I pull one, then later the next one comes loose, and on, and on, and on. Oh well, it'll just make it easier for the dentist when I go in for dentures. ha

Yes never give up there are ways other than 100% to get free VA Dental care. If you are in VA Hospital they have to give you dental care. If you are in a VA program such as Voc Rehab you get it. Also if you were involved in a Vet program and they have many you should get it.

Also emergency dental care is offered with copays.

And as stated by iceturkee if a VA Doc says you need it for a condition they are treating you can get it.

Good Luck
