Dental insurance is much like health you really do not want to go without even if you are not seeing a dentist as often as you should. It is best advise to see a dentist at least twice a year for your dental check ups and cleanings. Yet there are times when people may not go as often and they feel like there is no point in having dental insurance.
So why should you have dental insurance? Beyond the fact that most dental insurance plans provide preventive dental services (twice a year check ups and cleans) for free, what if there comes a time when you need to have larger dental care services. Dental care cost goes up greatly once you start needing fillings, crowns, root canal etc. Without a dental insurance plan in place you will have to foot the entire cost. An additional benefits to maintaining dental insurance is that the odds that you will visits the dentist regularly for your prevent care increases. Thus reducing your risk of having to have larger dental care services needs.
