From a painful tooth to a swollen jaw, many dental emergencies mean a trip to your local dentist. The bad news is that dental emergencies often come without warning and can be very costly. The good news is that Humana offers a variety of dental insurance and dental discount plans that can help you better manage costs associated with a dental emergency.
Dental insurance can be a smart move if your budget doesn’t have room for surprises. Humana dental plans can help you control expenses, even in emergencies.
The most common dental emergency is usually a toothache.1 If you’ve ever had one, you know that a toothache can disrupt your sleep, keep you from eating properly and interfere with work, school and other everyday activities. A visit to the dentist is always recommended when tooth pain is persistent.
Other examples of dental emergencies are pain and swelling in your mouth or gums; an extruded tooth, which is a tooth that has been moved out of its normal position; a tooth that has been knocked out; or an object lodged between your teeth that flossing won’t remove.
In these situations, dental insurance may save you money and take some of the stress out of a visit to the dentist.
