Did you know that according to a report published by the American Dental Association (ADA), approximately 59% of American adults avoid going to the dentist due to cost?
If you’re struggling to find an affordable dentist, studies confirm that you’re not the only one. On average, prices have risen by nearly twice the rate of inflation in recent years. The number of Americans with access to dental insurance has also dropped—only about 45% of Americans report that they’re covered.
At Penn Dental Medicine, not only are we committed to providing patients with quality dental care, but we’re also dedicated to helping you find affordable dental services.
While delaying a visit to the dentist out of financial fear is understandable for those who may not have dental or health insurance, or are on a restricted budget, doing so can lead to worsening dental and overall health problems.
According to the ADA, an estimated 26.5% of adults and 18.2% of children have untreated dental caries (tooth decay), and 47.2% of adults over age 30 have untreated gum disease. When tooth decay and gum disease are not treated it can lead to missing teeth and more problematic dental issues.
