Dental Plans for Seniors ?


New member
Both wife and I are seniors and neither of us have dental plans. Both have good teeth and get occasional cleanings. Nothing major.
Wife wants me to look at dental plans. So I did. Since we are AARP members , I looked at their site. They have a plan offered from $1,500 a year to $636 a year with varying annual deductibles, etc.
I also looked at the website They show plans from about $195 per yr to $200 per year. These are not really advertised as dental insurance but rather,discount plans that some dentist will offer. You pay $20 after check out and whatever they did to your teeth like cleaning (50-$60).
You have to go to the dentist on the list.

The ugly truth is that your teeth need extra care with age unless you have veneers. So, it’s worth applying for a dental plan if you haven’t done it earlier.
But, if you always had healthy teeth, I would stick to the $636 plan per year. You won’t need to visit a dentist that often. So, at least you can save a lot of money.
I usually don’t have any issues with my teeth, even though I drink a lot of coffee. I’m a smoker, and also I love to eat different sweets. I require teeth whitening services in Bay Village OH, from time to time, and that’s it. So, I went for the cheapest dental plan for myself.
