Teeth Problems

I have diabetes, The VA considers it a service connected disability caused by exposure to Agent Orange, which is cool. But the diabetes has caused some problems with gum infections which lead to teeth falling out. That's not so good. In fact it's terrible because the OKC VA wouldn't provide dental care unless I was 50% disabled and it was service connected. Diabetes is only considered a 20% disability.

So I started checking into Mexican dentists for dentures and the possibility of payday loans to pay for it.

Then I discovered that the Wichita VA doesn't ration health care as badly as the OKC VA and I transferred all my health care to Wichita. Viola, new teeth, no charge, service connected.

So I'm getting dentures.

This is to Gary Carson and his comment of November 08, 2008. Gary I too have gum and tooth problems which only started after becoming diabetic. In all of this have you found out any more information about getting dental care related to dibetes and Agent Orange? I am 50% SC and still fighting for my AO claim. Here in California I am told that you can only get dental care if you are 100% SC. Although they will pull all of your teeth and leave you toothless. Does anybody know anything that will help this old "Gator Sailor"?

Good thing you were able to discover that health care system, Gary! Our body is interconnected, that's why it has to be taken care of as a whole. Congrats on your new teeth, btw. :D

Was quite unhappy with my dentist so got to know about dentist Manhattan Beach who is one of well-known dentist in city. He was just amazing as he examined my teeth patiently and gave some precautions. Very glad and impressed with his service.
