regular medicaid will cover it, but only the basics (no gas or being put to sleep)

pregnancy medicaid will not cover any dental

Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" regular medicaid will cover it, but only the basics (no gas or being put to sleep) pregnancy medicaid will not cover any dental"



just to add

it might cover being knocked out IF MEDICALLY NEEDED to do the surgery. Not just cause you want it

I have pregnancy medicaid and they said it covers wisdom teeth removal but only after i give birth. (I will have medicaid for about 2 months after birth)

I literally just got off the phone with my case worker about having a root canal done and medicaid covering it just yesterday. She told me that if I was in pain and had an abscess/infection and went to the ER that I would be covered, considering I'm 8 months and putting the surgery off could potentially become harmful.



(However I am opting to wait because I only have a few weeks left and Tylenol helps with the pain in the meantime and I don't want to look like a sap using my coverage for something outside of my pregnancy... I am looking for an alternative in the mean time until it becomes too unbearable)




It's case by case where I live and I'd suggest you speak to your case worker about it, you never know.



As far as the surgery goes and looking like a chipmunk.. I wouldn't worry. When I had my 2 top ones removed there was very little pain that Tylenol couldn't relieve and no swelling at all. Aside from having to keep a cotton ball in the hole until the bleeding stopped, there was no discomfort.



Good luck.

Oh no, wouldn't it be awful to have pay for something! They should have to pay for plastic surgery to. Everything should be free! You are getting something for free and you all these people do is complain and complain..I would love for all you to have my insurance, with premiums and deductibles and co pay! I should be complaining/
