Does Medicaid cover bridge work?

I am missing four teeth - incisors 23-26 which fell out or were broken. I understand that implants are not covered my Medicaid, but what about a bridge? It would be nice to have the missing teeth replaced since I kind of need them for trivial things like eating and it makes job hunting difficult with a giant gap in my mouth.

Medicaid does not cover bridges or crowns

Medicaid only covers basic dental procedures, such as fillings, extractions, dentures, and anterior root canal.  It does not cover crowns, bridges, implants, and etc.  Due to the low reimbursement fees, not many dentists will accept medicaid.  You will need to either go to a community dental clinic or dental school.
