Let’s just face the music—going to the dentist isn’t cheap. Even with dental insurance you end up finding yourself paying some out of pocket, and if you don’t have insurance you find yourself with much lighter wallets when you leave. This is the first reason why it is important to have affordable dental plans.
Your health insurance covers just about everything, unfortunately it doesn’t cover your teeth; this means when you’re going to the dentist with that terrible tooth ache it doesn’t take much to spend a thousand dollars or more. A root canal can cost anywhere between $300-$1000 and a crown could cost $1,500. Even a simple cleaning usually costs more than $100, especially with fluoride treatment and x-rays.
Cheap dental insurance is out there for you and your family. By making sure you and your family’s teeth are covered you could be saving yourself thousands of dollars (those cleanings, fillings, and other procedures add up and can be gut wrenchingly high). Children especially need a lot of dental care, they are often prone to cavities and may need teeth corrections if they have an overcrowded mouth- and these simple procedures aren’t necessarily cheap.
Your teeth can get expensive, especially as you get older- if you don’t take care of your teeth you can have cavities, abscesses and even lose teeth due to neglect. Furthermore, those who don’t take proper care of their teeth can suffer from embarrassingly bad breath.
For all of these reasons and more it is pretty evident that dental coverage is necessary for you and your family.
