Dental Health is More Affordable Than You Think

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Thomas Mahar
Dental Health is More Affordable Than You ThinkSo, when was the last time you went to the dentist for a routine cleaning and examination? You are most likely preoccupied with family, job, school, or all three! You may be one of many people who believe that going to the dentist for a checkup is a luxury out of reach for your current financial situation. However, proper oral health is not a luxury. It's a must. Good oral hygiene and frequent dental exams are the most effective ways to avoid expensive operations in the future.

Affordable Dental Health

There is some positive news! Regular dental exams may be less expensive than you think. The typical American household spends more than $1,000 on coffee each year. That's over three times the price of two standard dental examinations and cleanings. Do you have health insurance via your job or through the Marketplace Exchange? Then you may have dental insurance and be unaware of it. Every year, your employer has the option to evaluate and modify your insurance coverage. In many circumstances, medical insurance is sold separately from dental insurance. You might have a card for your medical coverage but not for your dental coverage. If you have coverage, remember that most plans have a use-it-or-lose-it rule, so make the most of it. After all, you're already paying the high premium! Check the benefit available if you purchased a plan through the marketplace and chose a dental coverage option. Your dental treatment may be reimbursed if you satisfied your individual or family deductible for the year.

If You Don't Have Insurance

If you or your family do not have dental insurance, you are not alone, and we understand. We provide many payment alternatives for multi-step treatments, interest-free financing, and reasonable pricing for regular dental procedures. We are always delighted to offer a second opinion if you require one, and we urge our patients to do so to be confident in any dental treatment we propose. You can stop delaying if you've been putting off a routine checkup because you have a nagging notion that you need dental care.
