I am looking for dental insurance that will help me pay for a root canal and a crown. But when I review the plans all the ones I have seen so far say plus lab cost but do not tell you want the lab cost are? So had to I figure in my total cost? Just wondering if that is something I can know ahead of time or not.
I need braces but my dentist says not now
My dentist says that I have to lose all my baby teeth before I can have braces. They baby teeth I have left are not even lose. What can I do about this? I want braces now not when I am in my thirties. I know you are not supposed to just take out your own baby teeth but the dentist is not leaving me much choice.
So if anyone has any advice please go ahead and answer. However if you are just going to tell me not to do it and to wait then do not bother cause you are waisting my time.

Supplemental Dental Insurance
Supplemental dental insurance is an individual or family insurance policy purchased to cover a portion of the dental costs. Supplemental dental insurance will normally not cover the entire dental care procedure.
If you have a primary dental insurance plan that you purchased or your employer provided, the supplemental dental policy typically covers the remaining dental bill. For example, if the dental plan policy covers half of the dental cost, the secondary or supplement dental insurance plan should cover the remaining balance of your dental procedure.
A supplement dental insurance plan may also be purchased to cover the dental charges when there are annual dental benefit plan limits or exclusions.
I hope this information on supplemental dental insurance has helped.
