Help I have 13 cavities and I am running out of time.
I just went to the dentist for a cleaning and check up. My dental insurance is expiring on the first of January. It has been a few years since I have been to the dentist but since I will be changing jobs next year I am losing my dental insurance that I have with them on January 1st.
I was very surprised that I have so many cavities as I thought I was brushing my teeth well enough. I only went to the dentist because my insurance was going to cancel. With insurance that I have now it will cost me around 275.00 to fix all 13 cavities. Without insurance it will be over 1000.00.
The dentist is booked up until after the new year. He said he may be albe to fix one or two of the cavities before the first but that is not really helping me much. I all the insurance to see if I can keep it. They said I can but it would cost me 453.72 and they will make me pay it in full for the year with no refunds. So now to fix my filling I am looking at $730.00. This is a joke I can not afford that and they will not let me cancel after my filling are fixed to get a refund.
What should I do? Should I find a different dentist in hope he can get me in before Jan 1 and that maybe he will say I do not have so many cavities. Or do I do nothing for now since it is not like my teeth hurt me anyway?
