If My Dental Insurance Won’t Cover a Procedure Then Why Do I Need It?

Dental insurance is constantly increasing in price and decreasing in value, not to mention benefits changing with no notice to subscribers or to the providers who agree to file a claim with them as payment for their services.  It’s a constant struggle to keep up with dental insurance companies and their new rules, and we know that if we’re frustrated, surely our patients are as well. 

Insurance companies are for-profit machines that don’t have your best interest at heart to put it mildly. You shouldn’t let them dictate what will make you healthy and happy.

The Price of Discomfort

Dentistry isn’t just about scraping gums and reminding you to floss after every meal. It’s about keeping your whole mouth healthy. If you’ve ever had a toothache, you know that an unhealthy mouth is no fun.

If a treatment is recommended to you and it’s NOT covered by your dental insurance, think about the following:

If it’s a cosmetic issue, such as needing a crown, how unhappy does that broken tooth make you? How much more willing to smile and laugh out loud will you be once it’s fixed?
