When adults have no dental insurance but need new false teeth, they may not have the funds to buy them. Even cheap dentures can be too costly to afford.
False teeth don’t last forever, and if your dental insurance lapsed when you retired, there could come a time when you need new dentures but can’t afford them.
However, there are some organizations that are providing free partial dentures to people who qualify under their criteria.
In Botetourt County, residents who are in need of dental treatment are able to benefit from the Tuesday clinics run by The Christian Free Clinic.
Everyone is treated in a friendly environment, and they are warmly welcomed.
At 5.30 pm. on Tuesday evenings, registration begins in the Fincastle Baptist Church, situated at 7330 Roanoke Road, Fincastle, VA. And it finishes at 6.30 pm.
Hundreds of dental patients have been treated at The Christian Free Clinic since the non-profit organization started out, back in 2007.
As more and more people are sinking below the poverty line, so more and more people cannot afford to take out medical or dental insurance cover.
Thankfully, the growing number of non profit charitable organisations is growing, as is the generosity of dentists and other dental professionsals who are offering their services to those in need.
You may have been fitted with a fixed dental bridge ten or fifteen years ago, but if it breaks you’re unlikely to get one free of charge. You may find yourself having to get the bridge removed and removable partial dentures instead.
As we said at the start, dentures don’t last forever, so if you’re in need of new false teeth, you may be able to get them for free.
