@raynbow- I can understand how you could feel that spending money on a dental plan may seem like a waste of money, especially if you only use your plan for basic dental care. However, it is very likely that at some point, you will need more costly care such as root canal or crown. This is when having a dental insurance plan can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Many dental insurance plans cover preventative dental care such as x rays and cleanings. This allows patients to save on basic care. However, when costly care is needed, this is when having dental insurance is vital. For example, a root canal and a crown may cost as much as $1,000 to $2,000 or more. Many dental plans pay a good portion of these types of bills, saving a patient a lot of money.
