  • The state of Texas has great dental coverage for the people who live in Houston. Dental Coverage is very important to have because you never know when you will have a dental emergency. Make sure you are covered get dental coverage that is right for you. Affordable coverage is the key.
  • One of the oldest charity clinics in the United States, San José Clinic has provided healthcare to the uninsured since 1922. It is the only full-time clinic in the Greater Houston area dedicated exclusively to serving the uninsured.More than 1.1 million--one in every three--persons in the Houston/Harris County area lack health insurance. The demand for low-cost care in this area is consistently greater than available community resources. Primary healthcare for the uninsured is grossly inadequate, and specialty care is almost non-existent. Because of the Clinic's extensive corps of volunteers and teaching affiliations, patients are able to access specialty services in addition to primary healthcare.

A bit more:

Dental schools often offer extremely low prices on all sorts of dental services. The dental interns work pretty much as M.D. interns do, working under the supervision of experienced doctors to obtain experience, while at the same time providing quality care for patients. Dental colleges offer the same quality of services, just not in hospitals where M.D. interns do their residency.

So I would advise you to check with local dental colleges to see what kind of services they offer. You just may be pleasantly surprised.

If there is a dental school (college) nearby, you may be able to get your dental work done there, if not for free, then at least at a very reduced cost. You can also check with the ADA (American Dental Association) to see what programs they can recommend for free dental service, as well as your local Dept. of Health and Family Services.

Yes, there are places you can get dental work done by students. I have been to a place like that before and wasn't pleased with the results. Yes, you can, and at a discounted rate. Dental schools often have their students perform dental work, in order to give them real life experience.

One source of lower-cost dental care is a dental school clinic. Generally, dental costs in school clinics are reduced and may include only partial payment for professional services covering the cost of materials and equipment. Your state dental society can tell you if there is a dental school clinic in your area.

Dental Implants is a surgical procedure and hence when it is placed they numb the area where the implants have to be placed. Hence, there is not much of the pain while placing it. However, after the numbness wears off you may feel slight discomfort at the treated area but that is temporary. The implantologists will also give you certain advice to be followed while undergoing Implant treatment. If you still feel the pain or discomfort, you should consult your dentist.

You should determine that the dentist specializes in the type of dental work that needs to be done. You should also discuss that you will be paying for the dental work yourself so there will be no insurance company hassles. See if the dentist can offer you a discount or some other convenient payment plan. If there is a dental school nearby, check to see if they offer any relevant dental services.

A dental post is necessary when a root canal procedure has been done on a tooth that requires a crown. A build up is done on a tooth that needs a crown and has not had a root canal.

Dental veneers doesn't strenghten your tooth so it would break easily if you accidentally bite on hard objects like finger nails, pencils and peanuts. Dental veneers are not cheap and it is not repairable when it fractures. So you need to take good care of it once you done it.

You can receive dental treatments by going to an accredited dental school that offers dental care by their dentists in training. You can save as much as 60% by receiving your dental treatments this way and it is often much cheaper than having dental insurance.

Dental schools, which are professional schools within a university, sometimes have clinics that treat the public as experience for advanced dental students. The students work under the direct guidance of established, professional, licensed dentists. That is the only place a dental student would be authorized to work on a patient.
