With the cost of dental insurance constantly rising, you might want to explore a more effective form of dental insurance – preventive dentistry! You might think it sounds silly, but a small investment into maintaining your oral health is always more affordable than treating broken teeth or periodontal disease, or replacing missing teeth.
If you do have dental insurance, you will also notice that is designed for prevention, not treatment. Most preventive services have full coverage – often 100 percent – and they sometimes do not require the payment of a deductible. When getting into larger treatment, dental insurance is often closer than having a discount than it is to covering everything.
For patients without dental insurance, prevention is especially important because if oral health conditions develop, treating them will be 100% out-of-pocket.
Preventive services are often the least expensive and they will assist Dr. Ken Cory in identifying trouble early when it is less expensive and easier to treat.
Common preventive services:
- Dental exams
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Fluoride varnish
- Sealant applications
- Oral cancer screening
Of course, sometimes things happen! An accident or sudden infection may require an emergency dental visit. Don’t let finances stand between you and a healthy smile. Mountain West Smiles offers two payment plans so you don’t have to put off your dentistry or suffer from a toothache. We are here to help.
