A Personal Story: Missing Plate Affects Eating – Thomas, Lebanon

Thomas is 63 and lives in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He used to have a dentist he saw regularly, but since he lost his dental insurance, he hasn’t been back. “The insurance doesn’t cover it. I don’t know why, but it doesn’t.” Thomas is missing a partial plate denture that he lost in a move and now can’t find anywhere. Thomas doesn’t know how to get another plate, or how he will afford it. His missing plate affects his eating. “When I’m eating something, I feel like I’m eating the whole thing … I’d like to get a new partial plate so I could feel like I had a full set of teeth.”
