Do you really need dental insurance?
Many of us ask this question about all insurance in general. While I
am a firm advocate of insuraning against loss you might not need to
buy dental insurance if you're young and healthy, have no dental
problems and only go to the dentist twice a year for cleaning. The
cost of insurance and copayments might very well be more than the
cost of the cleanings themself.
However, if you are not a healthy person or have had a rough dental
history, you might very well want to purchase dental insurance or
join a dental discount plan. Dental proceedured can be very
expensive. Even with floride in our water millions of Americans each
year have cavitys filled, root canaels preformed and teeth extracted.
There are many factors that effect the health of our teeth. Some are
as simple as dental hygeine (brushing teeth properly). Others factors
like stress, personal habbits and nutrition can also play a role in
the health of our teeth. Even under the best of conditions most
people will be faced with dental expences, beyond simple cleaning,
sooner or later. Listed below are some different types of dental programs.
