Your teeth can last for a lifetime with the right care. It is best to brush and floss them daily to protect your dental health. Although home oral hygiene is vital, it is only half the care you need. The American Dental Association also recommends you see your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Preventive dentistry reduces the risk of oral health complications, decreasing your long-term dental expenses. While you know the appointments are important, you worry about the cost of the services. There is no need to be concerned. There are different options to keep your dental needs affordable.
Enjoy Comprehensive Dental Insurance
Dental insurance focuses on prevention. Routine cleanings and checkups allow your dentist to monitor your oral health to detect any problems while they are still small. Prompt intervention lessens the need for costly treatments in the future, lowering your dental costs. In fact, every $1 spent on prevention can save you $8 to $50 on restorative and emergency fees.
You can visit your dentist twice a year for little to no out-of-pocket expense by paying your monthly premiums. You will get the cleaning, checkup, and x-rays you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Unfortunately, even with the best prevention, an issue can still occur. To treat it quickly, your insurance can cover as much as 80% of the cost after paying your yearly deductible until you reach your annual allowance.
To make the most of your coverage, it is best to choose an in-network dentist. They have pre-negotiated rates with your insurance company to lower the amount you need to pay. You still have the freedom to visit any dentist, but you will need to pay the difference between their fees and your insurance’s allowable coverage if they are out-of-network.
Choose an In-House Savings Plan
Although more Americans than ever now have dental insurance, 23% of the population does not have coverage. If you are among those who do not have insurance, you can still get the care you need for affordable rates with an in-house savings plan.
After paying a small annual membership, you can get the cleanings and checkups you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. You will also enjoy a discounted rate for general, cosmetic, and periodontal procedures. You are even covered for one emergency visit per year in the event the unexpected happens.
