A popular joke has it that one may consider him or herself a bona fide grown-up when the fear of the final bill is greater than that of the dentist himself. There is some truth behind every joke, but the sad fact remains that most grown-ups still put off their visit to the dentist for so long that there is very little that can be eventually done to solve the rotten tooth problem. Dental insurance will cover the expenses and take away the overdraft fear, but you have to actually use the benefits of that insurance.
Even the best dentist in Etobicoke won't be able to magically cure you in just a minute, without taking the panoramic X-ray of your whole jaw. You may experience the pain not quite in the place where the offender actually sits in your mouth. Also it is common for the sick and caries-affected teeth to stick together neatly. So you're ending up not with just one problematic tooth, but a whole bunch of them with a couple of holes in each.
The amazing thing is that you can actually do something about the literally nagging problem due to the fact that you have dental insurance. Using your dental insurance you may be lucky enough to escape with just a couple of polymer stopping and a living nerve or without the latter or without the whole tooth altogether. The advantage however is that you do not have to pay the costs. (more...)
