Haven't been on for a while, been winding down lately, can't seem to get health under control. Can you tell me if medicare will pay for oral surgery for your jaw getting smaller? I got bad infections around my teeth and the backmost teeth are jamming up against my crowns and some starting to overlap and the whole mess is infected. Dentist wouldn't pull the backmost teeth for me because he said they are "healthy" teeth. He said I need an oral surgeon, who told me that most of the time they hav to do the extraction of the backmost molars. Anyway, I am in bad pain and been to ER twice and doctor once. On the immunosuppressants, the infection just comes right back, no matter how strong the antibiotics are or how long I take them.
I just need to know if anyone has had any luck in getting medicare to cover extractions due to the jaw shrinking due to disease (as opposed to breaks or whatever).
Love yall, Marji
