Dental coverage can help safeguard your mouth and your wallet. Did you know that 28% of young adults between 20 and 34 have untreated tooth decay, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey? That’s higher than any other age group.
When you have coverage, you’re more likely to visit the dentist. Preventive care like cleanings can keep cavities away, and regular dental exams can spot problems early on.
With coverage, you’ll pay less, if anything, out of pocket for cleanings, exams and x-rays. And coverage can lower your costs on expensive treatments like root canals and crowns.
But even if you’re among the lucky few who’ve never had a cavity in their life, it’s worth considering dental insurance. Dental emergencies like a chipped or knocked-out tooth can happen to anyone, and you’ll relax knowing you’re covered.
