Is it not possible to get white filling for front teeth with insurance?

I believe that is what many patients think. But the answer is yes, you can get a white filling for your front teeth up to 6 front teeth (from one dogtooth to the other) with health insurance.
Meanwhile, please be aware that the insured filling will discolor over time as it is made of resin-like material. Bridges are available as well (unavailable depending on strength).
Please consult us for details.

My child was held down to receive treatment and he/she can no longer go to the dentist.

We do not employ medical restraint at our clinic.
While it would take a very long time for children with traumatizing experience to be able to receive treatment again, we respect their feelings and start off with helping them get used to the environment through a number of counseling sessions. We previously had a child patient who spent one whole year to be able to get treatment without attendance of the mother. If you are a parent with a child who has never been to a dental clinic before, we recommend that you and your child pay a brief visit to our clinic, perhaps for a checkup.
It is a brilliant idea to help your child get used to the dentist as early as possible through ways your child is not scared of. Strictly speaking, children’s cavities are the result of parents’ irresponsibility! We beg you to get toothbrushing done every night before your child goes to bed. Absolutely no eating or drinking afterwards, not even milk.
Please consult us for more details.
Saitama City offers dental checkup for infants (1.5-year-olds and 3-year-olds)!

It’s too painful and can’t chew with my dentures. What should I do?

There are many possible causes. We recommend you pay a visit to our clinic once.
Generally, dentures are very personal and conditions greatly vary from patient to patient. Some patients happen to be wearing inappropriate dentures that us professionals can hardly believe that they had been eating with them.
As a matter of common sense, dentures should be painful, since you have solid plastic or metal parts on top of your gums and you are applying force on them by chewing food. However, there are parts of gums which can bear such force and parts which cannot. There are also parts which inflict pain depending on how the force is applied. Thinking of how you used to have your own teeth in that place and how you have false teeth there now, isn’t it convincing that you can’t chew? When we get an artificial leg or hand, nobody can run or grip a tiny object out of the blue. Dentures = artificial teeth. We can surely think the same way with teeth, too—but we are not telling you to give up. It is always possible to adjust your dentures so that you can enjoy eating and drinking once again, albeit to a lesser degree (depending on the type and amount of food).
Please consult us for more details.

I often feel pain in my jaw, specifically from my teeth to ears, in the morning when I wake up. Does this have anything to do with the teeth. I don’t remember having wisdom teeth pulled out.

While we cannot give a definite answer unless we see you, we reckon your symptoms are stemming from various complicated factors (namely the TMJ arthrosis). Each cause needs to be removed carefully, one by one.
Small adjustments might be enough to relieve your tooth pain. Pain around your ears are probably because of unnatural movement of muscles (muscles used to chew food and muscles which slide the jaw). You might be able to reduce pain by wearing a device made of resin which limits your chewing force, even only when you are sleeping. It does not shave or drill your tooth and you can use it with no fear.
