When most people think of choosing health plans, their primary focus is typically for medical matters. But dental insurance is just as important. It can help pay for most types of dental care and be a financial safety net if you need to undergo a more complex dental procedure.
One-third of Americans have not seen a dentist in the past year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Interview Survey. Most often, the reason is money. About 40 percent of adults who haven’t seen a dentist in the past year say they don’t go due to cost, according to the American Dental Association.
Why regular dental care is important
Healthy teeth and gums are important, and regular checkups play a key role in maintaining them. Your dentist can detect issues you may be unaware of and many dental issues – including gum disease, cavities and oral cancer – don’t cause pain or become visible until they are in advanced stages. That’s why regular dental visits are needed at least every six months or as recommended by your dental professional.
At the office of Pomerado Family Dental, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate dental care — and to accepting many insurance plans that make it easier for our patients to commit to regular dental care and save money in the process. There are many insurance options available. Our office team is happy to answer any questions you may have about dental insurance coverage and our participating plans.
