Dental Treatments for individuals and families can be quite costly, whether you have insurance coverage or not. Not all dental insurance policies cover every procedure. Coverage may be sufficient for routine dental work such as exams, cleanings and fluoride treatments, but dental emergencies, disease and chronic oral health issues might require a big out-of-pocket payment.
Insurance premiums are continuing to rise while the percentage of coverage for these procedures are not, which leaves many children and adults delaying oral health care in general. This can have extreme adverse affects leading to tooth decay, root canals, & gum disease. In fact, tooth decay is the number one oral health problem of children and when left untreated leads to serious health problems and even surgery, tooth removal and/or hospitalization.
If you or a loved one is struggling to pay for dental treatment or a major medical procedure for themselves or their family, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t put necessary dental work off because you can’t afford it. Start a Move Your Mountain fundraiser and ask others to help by providing emotional and financial support.
Every person including adults and children deserve proper oral health care so they can live a happy life with a healthy smile.
