Unfortunately no. SSA does not offer dental.

Medicare does not cover routine dental care or most dental procedures such as cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions or dentures.

Medicare will pay for some dentistry-related hospitalizations; for example, if you develop an infection after having a tooth pulled or you require observation during a dental procedure because you have a health-threatening condition. In such cases, Medicare will cover the costs of hospitalization and your dentist's treatment fee.

Please do not forget or ignore to give a positive rating (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES). It adds nothing to your costs but it assists me.
