I called the dentist who done this and she said the only way she would look at it was if I paid half the surgery/anesthesia up front, plus x-rays and other costs. I had already spent over dollars getting the last of my teeth removed with her already and now I no longer have insurance to cover it. I am on medicare and I am disabled and they do not cover anything but cancer related stuff. I am wondering since I had the teeth removed over 4 years ago, but the problem with my gums and the ingrown tooth did not show up until 10 months ago what I should do now. I have not been able to chew on that side of my mouth for at least 8 months and I have been in pain every since it came through and it is getting worse. I know in Georgia that there was a time limit of 2 years that you had to sue etc, the Doctor, anything over that and you were out of luck. All this happened in North Carolina though and I am in GA now.
