I am a 44 year old single mother on Social Security. I am low income and I am raising my daughter on low income. I have teeth that have cracked and I lost two. I am in need of the root to be pulled and that has been over due a year. I am in severe pain and my sister had a brain abcess and ended up in the hospital for three months after two brain surgeries. She was paralyzed on one side and did time in rehab. I am terrified of that being my fate. Is there any help with dental through Medicare? I have Medicare through Social Security Disability.

Medicare does not cover dental treatment. However, you may be able to find low cost or sliding scale fees at a local dental school. You did not provide your city and state so I am not able to suggest possibilities. You can search for dental schools in your area online.

At the very least, go see your doctor for pain killers as well as (hopefully) something to ease the swelling (if any). The doctor should also be able to address your concerns about related issues and if brain tumours are a potential result of your current problems.
