Money doesn’t grow on trees. If it did, people would be able to pay for the needs they have without a problem! These days, it’s not uncommon to hear the phrase, “Money is tight.” This means that people have to prioritize what to spend their money on. For example: the choice between paying their high rent rates and paying for dental care.
1. How Are High Rents Bad for Teeth?
In a recent analysis by Zillow, results showed that 40% of households have cut out dental care from their budget because they either couldn’t afford it or they needed the money to pay rent. Take a look at the infographic to the right, illustrating the areas of health care that have been overlooked in order to pay the rent.
As rent rates have increased, dental health care – and overall health care – has decreased. Families essentially have to choose between two important things: Paying the rent or keeping up with their dental health.
The problem is that when dental health gets neglected, it usually worsens and gets more expensive. Without proper treatment, a dental condition can end up posing a serious health risk that costs more money to fix than a simple routine appointment.
2. How Can We Fix the Problem?
What’s the Solution?
Is there a solution that will allow money for dental care, yet also make sure rent bills get paid? The short answer: yes, dental plans!
