Last year, for me, one cleaning. I skipped my second cleaning because of husband’s serious health problems.
For husband - last year, about $500, early in the year, with a lot more work planned. Then his brain tumor demanded all the attention, so there went that plan. This year, now that we can concentrate on his teeth again, we’ve already maxed out his dental insurance through my job ($1500 benefit per year), and much more to come. All the meds he has to take have seriously messed up his teeth, and the new meds he got in the hospital just make things worse. We joke that we’re financing our dentist’s next vacation or two.
And despite driving him to five dental appointments, with at least four more to come, I haven’t scheduled a cleaning and checkup for myself.
