I went to Aspen Dental today planning on getting my usual 2x year cleaning. I just recently changed insurance and Aspen is on my plan and right across the street from my work, so I thought it was a good choice.
I have healthy teeth, only 3 cavities in my whole life( I am 36). You can imagine my shock when I was advised that I had early stage periodontal disease and needed an extensive periodontal cleaning, not just a regualar cleaning. They said they could not do a regular cleaning and were going to submit this all to my insurance and if another practice did a regular cleaning on me it would be considered 'malpractice'. So, basically I am stuck going back there to get this extensive cleaning I so called need and can't go to a regular dentist to get a regular cleaning.
The estimated cost for this procedure is $946 and that is after insurance. What the heck?
I need some advice! Thanks.
