There are currently no board certified prosthodontists at JustAnswer. I am a general practice dentist, and faculty member at the NYU College of Dentistry. Can I help you with a question?

Sadly, Medicare does not provide benefits for dental services. This would include the replacement of teeth, regardless of whether the teeth were lost due to cancer.

You might wish to investigate whether your wife's cancer center has a prosthodontist on staff, who might be able to make a case for the need for a maxillofacial prosthetic, if that is the type of treatment that is warranted.

Good luck!
