How To Maintain Your Smile Without Dental Insurance
There are a lot of reasons people choose to forego dental care. Life is busy. Dental offices can be intimidating. Not everyone has dental insurance. Regardless of your excuse, our Snellville Ga., dentist’s office is ready to get your oral health back on track this summer. Nothing is worth putting your smile (and your overal health) in jeopardy. We realize that not feeling like you can afford the care you need is perhaps the one thing that seems insurmountable, so today we’d like to talk about how we can help you even if you do not currently carry dental insurance. Keep reading and then be sure to call us at [phone] to request your next preventive dentistry appointment.
You Aren’t The Only One
Here’s a disconcerting fact: something like 40 percent of Americans do not have dental insurance. Even those who do are often at the mercy of their policy’s fine print.
On average, most dental insurance providers in this country endow cardholders with an annual allotment between $1,000 to $1,500. That amount works out fine for the person with awesome teeth or minor problems, but you can plow through your annual allotment quickly if you have issues that require restorative dentistry work.
What you may not know is that most dental insurance providers only cover about half the cost of a restoration like a crown, and it goes without saying that not every treatment is always going to be covered at all.
Plus, insurance companies often have certain stipulations for how often you can restore a tooth (insurance will generally cover crown replacement after 5 years).
We Have Offer An Alternative Plan
You can take heart knowing that Parkway Dental accepts several major insurance providers, and we’ll work with you to maximize your allowance. Still, we also encourage patients to do the right thing for their smile instead of simply following what insurance dictates.
That’s why our office has introduced an in-office savings plan and special financing option. It’s there for our patients in case there is ever a major dental problem or a need arises for extensive reconstruction. Whatever unfolds, we want you to feel confident that you can fix it at the most appropriate time instead of waiting on your insurance.
You Won’t Have To Wait For Treatment
As we alluded to at the beginning of this post, patients without dental insurance often opt out of treatments, especially preventive dentistry treatments until it is too late for an easy fix.
This is unfortuante because prevention is always less expensive than shopping for a restorative dentistry solution. Along those same lines, it’s easier to pay out-of-pocket for your cleanings and exams rather than need extensive dental work after years of avoiding the dentist.
For example, the disparity between the cost of a simple tooth-colored filling and the cost of a root canal with a dental crown is great. The choice is to pay a little now to maintain your great smile, or pay a lot later to get it back in shape.
