In wv medicaid will pay for braces if they feel it is severe..my daughter had the most awful teeth I had saw and medicaid paid for every dime of her braces..she has had them on for 2 yrs now and her teeth are beautiful now, they are coming off in 6 more months..i would call medicaid in your state, they do pay for most orthodontist if a dentist refers you..p.s. they dont have to be that bad for the orthodonist to call them severe, I guess they like the pay from medicaid..

My daughter had braces that were done by Dr. Penna in NC and we have moved to Upstate NY (Troy/Albany area) for family reasons. I can't seem to find an orthodontist that accepts NY Medicaid. I called Medicaid and they said there are no lists for orthodontists. All I need is to have them removed and my son has an arch that was supposed to be removed in April and now his gum is growing over the arch and no one seems to want to take them off. This is affecting his health. Please if you have any suggestions.
