Hi! My husband needs to have his Amalgams removed, but he does not currently have dental insurance. Do most insurance companies cover Amalgam removal? If he gets insurance, and then shortly thereafter has this work done, will they still cover the cost, or do they have some sort of rule that a certain amount of time (and payments) has to go by before they will cover it? Can anyone recommed a good dental insurance co.?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Can't help. My insurance is really a cheap insurance, so I'm paying for it myself. My dentist is charging me about 40.00 a piece for the fillings to be removed and replaced, so it is pricey. Like anyone who has no insurance, tell the dentist you are not insured and get quotes from several dentists. A lot of times doctors will reduce their price because they don't have to deal with the insurance companies.
I couldn't find insurance that would cover Amalgam replacement. Unfortunately they consider it cosmetic.
I payed $170 canadian per tooth and had 27 replaced involving 15 teeth. Alot of the dentists I checked out had lower prices but I chose the most expensive one because he was a holistic dentist and used the proper protocal to remove them. This was almost a year ago and the improvement to my health has been well worth the investment.
Don't be afraid to start the parasite, bowel,kidney,liver cleanses before removal as health can be drastically improved with them.
If money is a problem, It's well worth sacraficing other expenditures( eating out, movies, hobbies) Start with one tooth and chip away at it slowly. You'll be glad you did.
P.s. My wife has just informed me that her brothers Blue cross insurance covered most of his work.
when you say "27 replaced, involving 15 teeth" what does that mean? I'm neive how you cna have more than one replaced on a tooth. I'm having all the mercury taken out and replaced by the porcelan. (I'm too lazy to spell check)
Glad to hear that it's been worth it to you.
I am looking for a holistic dentist. Would you mind sharing the name and telephone number of the dentist you saw? I do not mind traveling to Canada to replace fillings as the prices you quoted sound better than what I have been quoted here.
