I live in east tn, and even though it is well known that abscesses if left untreated can kill, you couldn't get dental help (if you are over the magic number of 19) if your life depended on it, and people will let you die. There have been many instances of that happening in the last few years, sadly. My favorite I heard from our local health department, the blount county branch, was "contact your mayor." I am on the low end pay scale of SSD..... yes I paid into the evil system, and they pay me pittance back!...and really had no choice than to do so!, and even though I have eight auto immune disorders, including lupus, which an insect bite can turn fatal at any given time, I cannot find any dentist in all of east tn that will at the least just pull the thing and bill me a hundred bucks to be paid in blood....I promise it will be paid and maybe a bonus of a huge pus pocket too! Seriously though, itt disgust me that in a country that has a bloated government, the citizens cannot even get relieve from a life threatening tooth abscess. Yeah, yeah! I know! I am responsible for myself, and never mind that lupus is caused by environmental factors that again, I have no control over, thanks to a corrupt and greedy government! WHERE'S THOSE TRILLIONS WE KEEP LOSING, PENTAGON? I could use a few hundred bucks of it, so get to work and find it NOW! or better yet, billions are "lost' by our military in Afghanistan on a monthly basis. OOPS! Hmmm maybe I could go find some of that to pay for my needed extraction that I cannot afford, since I paid it all into the SS administration for thirty years, but cannot get it back! Many more of us each week/month becomes more fed up and we are faced with the reality that we have overfed a monster marriage made in hell, called government/corporation. May all their teeth rot out, and they too will have no dental!

Dear Esther51~

You are an incredibly beautiful woman.  I have read your posts and I thank you for your kind words.

I did find some clinical trials specializing in barrett's esophogus in california- that may be of interest to you.  

As for the dental care - that is much more difficult. What I can suggest is this: I have the new dentist make a report on his findings and take it back to the original dentist who made the dentures. See if they can adjust the dentures to fit properly. Yea, I know it is a long shot but it might be worth a try. Tell them you cannot wear them because they do not fit properly and never have. If you can at least get the top to fit - you will feel a LOT better. 

One other thing I can suggest is PROSPER - it is a person to person loan site - which may be helpful instead of going through a bank. HOWEVER the interest rate may be higher, but you may have a better chance of getting approved. 

Also have you checked into dental schools in your area? While I have never had any work done by them, some people have referred others to them - perhaps they can do a portion of the work... while a specialist does the rest. 

 I did a quick check and found the DEREN KOLIGAN CARE CENTER

Not only do they have a dental clinic , but they also have a GERD clinic that may be able to help with your Barrett's esophogus  - it is right in fresno as well... I hope this helps..

God bless you for all your research, I still haven't found help yet, but Im not giving up, and I refuse to lost hope, if I didn't have a God in my life. I would have given up, if you have time you can read my very long post, and about me, I'm still new to this so I get confused if the abot me is suppose be a brief thing, and then the posts are the problems/help to give or get to others...  anyway  the picture of me on my profile is me putting on a happy face with my top dentures, I won't go into  details..   

I just wanted to say thank you, and God bless you and all those on this wonderful site, just seeing everyone trying to help each other, puts a smile on my face... have a blessed weekend.                 Kat
