While prisoners within the Federal Bureau of Prisons do have access to a dentist, the level of care is usually lacking. "Routine care," as policy calls it, usually means waiting upwards of two or three years for a tooth to be pulled or a temporary filling to be applied. This article is not about this "official" dental care. This is about how prisoners, those left with no other recourse, fix their own teeth. This is prison dental care in the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
