It pays off to have a dental plan in place. Nothing is worse than having a toothache and needing to wait until you can afford to visit the dentist because you don’t have a current dental plan. I had a toothache once that sent pain through the whole side of my face. I don’t care for the dentist, but couldn’t wait to get an appointment to take care of my tooth. My family presently has a family dental insurance plan, so all I had to do was schedule an appointment. If I wouldn’t have had a dental plan, pulling my wisdom tooth would have cost an arm and a leg. I know lots of people get teeth pulled everyday, but I’m a wimp and wanted to be put to sleep. I am so glad that I insisted on being a wimp about the procedure, because the root of my tooth was entwined around other roots and gave the dentist quite a fight before he could remove it. Thank goodness I was asleep for that!
