Do You Have Dental Insurance?

Mother and daughter.

It was a few months back that I thought I had a piece of popcorn in my tooth.  I remember feeling it with my tongue and thinking something was wrong.  Then the pain started.  I had never had tooth pain like that before while using invisalign.  I called up my dentist and made an appointment.  Thankfully, I had dental insurance at the time.

I went to our family dentist and they took x-rays.  Part of the tooth, or what was probably a filling, had broken off and the inside of the tooth was decaying.  They gave me some antibiotics and scheduled me to come in a week later to see if I was going to need dental implants for the decaying tooth or not. I couldn’t wait to get it fixed!  When I went in, they told me that may end up needing to do a root canal.  This would be the first time I’d ever had that done.  It would cost around $3,000 without insurance.  Yikes!

If I didn’t have dental insurance, I wouldn’t have been able to afford that and would have been in pain and discomfort.  It’s amazing how much something as simple as dental insurance can make such a huge impact on one’s life.  If you don’t have dental insurance right now, I highly recommend you head over to and get a few quotes for the best plan for you and your family today!
