Additional updates to Medi-cal, Denti-cal, and immediate dentures for adult patients.
Beginning June 1st, 2014 denti-cal will begin covering immediate dentures without authorization. That is, if you have had teeth pulled on the same arch within the last 6 months, you can get a full upper denture or full lower denture with out prior authorization. If your current teeth prevent you from chewing or masticating properly and is adversely effecting your health, you can get a denture made without prior authorization from denti-cal. If your teeth are loose and wobbly, maybe you are a good candidate for dentures.
If you currently have full dentures, then you must still apply for a new set of dentures through denti-cal. Denti-cal currently covers a new set of dentures if your current set is over 5 years old and is no longer serviceable.
If you are in the Riverside CA area or any of the surrounding cities including Corona, Moreno Valley, Perris, San Bernadino and are having difficulty eating or chewing, maybe you are a candidate for dentures. Give us a call at (951) 687-8700 to inquire. Peter Mani, DDS currently accepts medi-cal / denti-cal and is accepting new patients.
