Do I need dental insurance?
Yes! Your health insurance covers just about everything EXCEPT your teeth. Without dental insurance, a trip to the dentist could take a big bite out of your wallet. Much like your car, it wouldn't take much to spend a thousand dollars or more. A crown may cost $953 and a root canal might run you $997. Even a simple cleaning would come in at more than $83. Dentist visits can be expensive, but dental insurance coverage can save you lots of money—especially on routine visits and preventative oral health care.
Preventive care, including regular checkups and cleanings, is the key to maintaining your oral health. With regular visits to the dentist, problems can be diagnosed early and treated without extensive testing or elaborate and expensive procedures—and that keeps the costs of dental care low.
