We understand how you feel. Other patients have had this same concern and what we have found is that your insurance is making sure that you do not neglect your regular dental cleanings and exams. Routine dental examinations, cleanings, and x-rays, as well as proper home care, is your best insurance. In partnering with us for your oral health by coming in routinely you will be able to focus on prevention instead of restoration and, in the case of decay, problems can be caught early while they are still easily and affordably treated instead of waiting until something breaks or hurts. When you wait until there is an emergency, the treatment that is needed is usually more extensive and expensive.
