Most Americans will need to have some sort of dental procedure performed during their lifetime, and those procedures often cost significant amounts of money. In fact, in a recent research study published by The Access Project on dental care costs in America, around 75% of Americans incurred out-of-pocket dental care costs. Further, the study revealed that nearly 10% of Americans incurred significant amounts of debt in order too cover dental bills. These statistics show the high costs of dental care and the reality that most Americans have to pay out-of-pocket to cover their dental expenses. A Florida family dental plan is an effective way to manage dental care costs while receiving the care you need.
Costs of Dental Care
Without insurance or a dental plan, even routine and common dental procedures—such as teeth cleanings, oral exams, x-rays, fillings, etc.—can be financially overwhelming. While the cost varies by dentist, the average cost for a routine dental cleaning, exam and x-ray is between $250 and $300. Average costs for amalgam fillings range from $100-$200 per tooth and from $150-$250 per tooth for composite fillings. Other more serious dental procedures cost much more, such as:
- Root canals
Without a dental plan, the cost of quality dental care could place a significant financial burden on your family.
Ease the Financial Strain
While the costs of routine and common dental procedures can be staggering, with a dental plan, they don’t have to be. Florida dental plans allow individuals and families to pay an affordable monthly fee to become members of the savings plan and become entitled to significantly discounted rates for dental procedures performed by an in-network dentist. A dental savings plan could save you thousands of dollars in dental fees and offer you peace of mind as you maintain your oral health.
