Dental and Orthodontic Financing
For those in lower income communities with little to no healthcare coverage, it can be difficult to afford preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental care for themselves and their children.
However, some dental problems need immediate attention. The longer a dental issue is avoided, the higher the risk of infection (and more serious injuries), which makes the overall cost of dental care more expensive. When dental work is required, a dental loan can pay for whatever dental procedure the patient needs including dental check-ups, fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth removal, pediatric dental care, and bridges. Practicing proper oral hygiene like flossing and brushing your teeth can prevent the majority of dental emergencies. Tooth decay, gum disease, and dental abscesses are several preventable dental conditions that can cause severe health problems resulting in a possible ER visit.
Correcting crooked teeth, a gummy smile, or an overbite involves booking an orthodontist appointment, getting a diagnosis, and starting a treatment plan. The average cost for an orthodontist to fix your smile is $5,000. A patient's lack of coverage could prevent them from getting traditional braces, plastic aligners, or invisible braces. If a patient doesn't have healthcare coverage for their orthodontic correction treatment, orthodontic financing can offer full coverage with flexible repayment plans. Supplemental financing can convert dental procedure expenses into easy to manage, low monthly payments. Most Americans don't have orthodontic coverage, so having an affordable financing option to pay for dental procedures is essential.
