Dr. Sonny Shaddix accepts patients with insurance for dental services in Garland, Tx.
Taking proper care of your teeth and gums requires more than brushing and flossing regularly. It is also helpful to see a dentist at least twice a year for a thorough cleaning and check-up. For children, it’s especially important to get in the habit of visiting the dentist regularly. Without dental insurance, often, the cost of these procedures can quickly add up. Also, as dental incidents arise and you need more treatment to your teeth and gums than simple preventative measures, you could be looking at a hefty cost.
One of the more common dental procedures referred to as fillings, can run several hundred dollars or more depending on the pricing that particular dentist charges. Likewise, procedures such as root canals and extractions can cost several hundred or even several thousands of dollars. If a dentist determines that these procedures are necessary for your oral health, putting it off because of lack of funds can be detrimental to your teeth and gums.
Dental insurance helps pay for some, most or all of the cost associated with these procedures. Your dental insurance plan provides you with access to care you may not have been able to afford otherwise.

Dental Advice: People without dental insurance are less likely to take proper care of their teeth. This is usually because they can’t afford to go to the dentist, or would rather spend their money elsewhere. Knowing that at least part of your dental treatment will be covered is an incentive to seek out that treatment.
Preventative treatment not only helps you safeguard against future problems, it also provides the opportunity to catch potential problems before they become too serious and require more extensive and expensive procedures.
