An estimated 74 million Americans have no dental insurance coverage and I’m one of them. Regular checkups only happen twice a year, but you never know what they will discover once they get their hands in there.
The dentist “a la carte” can really add up. An office visit ranges anywhere from $50 - $350, if they find a cavity, it sets you back $50 - $200, and if you need a crown, you’re looking at $500 - $1500.
Without proper oral care, you could spend $15,000 - $40,000 on a full mouth reconstruction!
Unless you have perfect teeth and actually brush after every meal, you will probably spend a good amount of money on dental care throughout your life.
