americas healthcare system is a joke. BUT, when i was stationed in germany...where they have coverage, the citizens always complained about the extremely high taxes. u cant have ur cake and eat it too. but at the same time, as far as the US is concerned, we could do a far greater job fixing our priorities with a health care plan that covers everyone near the top!

If you really think about it, this poor man shouldn't of even needed insurance to get his tooth taken care of. I'm sure the procedure he needed was easily 600 (probably more), which is a ridiculous price.

We don't need car insurance to get our oil changed, why do we dental/medical insurance for a simple check up? That's what happens when big business dips their hands in the pot. Medicine a fu*king industry...sh*t is sad! Paper money is worth more than a life. I'm disgusted.

I'm not sure if you were trying to say Living in Canada wouldn't of mattered or not, but with what you said, he would of survived, which is the real importance, and after being on the antibiotics would've at least known, hey this could get serious, by seeing a doctor that actually wouldve told him it could k!ll him, cause apparently the DR in the US didn't tell him sh*t except "here take these vicodin it'll get better!"

He would not have died from a tooth infection. He would've still had serious dental problems though. I'm not sure if you've seen how bad a wisdom tooth can get if not pulled out when needed but, he woulda still been in danger.

Kyle Willis, who was unemployed and did not have medical insurance, purchased $3 pain medication instead of the $27 antibiotics because he couldn't afford it.

Now does that make sense to you ? Its a sad story but come on i could wash my neighbors cars and make 27 dollars . As black men we take a corrective approach to health care instead of a preventative approach .

Yeah man if you don't take care of your teeth, it can lead to heart problem and other sh*t sh*t. It's so crazy how connected the body is

Anyway, I bet you if this was a dog, it would have gotten taken care of asap!

Well, usually it's $400-$500 per tooth... and yes, there are different prices for different teeth ( i dunno why). That doesn't include any novacaine or anesthetic.

With that said, I don't understand ur point at all.

He didn't need a simple check-up. He needed a procedure. Car insurance or not... if you need an oil change, you have to pay for one. If you don't get one, eventually, ur car will die. Check-ups don't help wisdom teeth... there is no preventative maintenance that you can get to make sure you don't need need wisdom teeth removal. The best that maintenance would have done in this case is let dude know his wisdoms are growing in, and maybe he could have gotten them removed earlier, when he still had a job with insurance.

Do it ASAP. I waited a long time because I was afraid to actually go under (it was my first and only major surgery). It got to be way too painful. The oral surgeon told me that had I waited much longer, I would have been in danger of the infection spreading to my brain.
yea i need to get on that

the nerves in your teeth are connected to everything. You could wait to long to have ur wisdoms removed, and by the time you ready to pull them out... the procedure can cause prolonged paralysis in your face. You tooth can rot, and then the toxins in your rotting tooth can spread and k!ll you. The wisdom might just grow forward into your other teeth and push all ur teeth together.... endless bad sh*t can happen man.

I had 5, yes FIVE wisdom teeth removed. I was told to do it way back in 1995... i waited until 2008. They were worried about paralysis but, it was fine. I was fuk'd for about 8 days though.

well you could always go to a hospital emergency room there's usually a dentist on call there, they will pull your sh*t out and you are left with a bill.. that's what i did when i needed a root canal but had no money, pay the bill whenever you can, so he died because he was a idiot.

I encourage all my friend to go to the dentist. Your grill is a very important part of your overall health, mouth wash, floss, and brush 2x a day at least!!
