Even if you’re with an NHS dentist, it’s going to cost at least £19.70 every time you visit for an examination, rising to £53.90 if you need a filling or root canal treatment, and £233.70 if you need more complex work such as crowns or dentures (1).
When you add up the potential savings of having dental treatment included in your cash plan, rather than shelling out every time one of the family needs some work doing, they can be huge. And the good news is that each one of our plans include a dental benefit.
Emergency work is included as well as your regular check-ups, so you don’t need to worry about the extra expense that can occur if a tooth chips, you need to pay a visit to the orthodontics, or you suddenly need a filling. We’ll even cover you if you need dentures or implants to replace missing teeth.
The best thing is it takes away all the worry of having to factor in extra money to your budget each month for healthcare costs. According to the British Dental Health Foundation, almost a fifth of people in the UK have delayed dental treatment due to the cost (2).
There are a huge variety of plans – both employer and employee-paid, as well as those specially designed for under 25s, over 64s, and families, so you’re bound to find something to suit you. If you’re not currently a Paycare policyholder, you can find out more about our dental benefit here.
