I am 31 years old and when I was 15 I was diagnossed with osteomyelitis in my mouth. As a result I have lost 3 teeth. I have 5-6 more teeth that are severely loose.

12 years ago they told me that my only option was to get a bone graft and have dental implants. I have not had one insurance company that would pay for them because they say they are cosmetic! Anyways my mouth is a sight and I am at my wits end. I was wondering if a partial would be possible? ...Visitor from MI

It really depends on the mechanics of what is left in your mouth. If you had osteomyelitis, I would have your physician fill out the necessary paperwork with your carrier so that it can be documented. Your oral surgeon should also be able to do this.

There is no reason why your insurance should not cover your treatment, since osteomyelitis is a disease of the bones. They should pay for grafts and implants. If they don't...file a complaint with the insurance commissioner and get a lawyer involved to help you get the money.

Let your dentist and oral surgeon decide what is best for you and insist that your insurance pays for it. Don't take no for an answer.
