It’s inevitable: You’re enjoying a meal, perhaps gnawing on a barbecued spare rib, and you chip a tooth. Or you wake up in the middle of the night in agony thanks to a cavity that’s made its presence known. If you’ve had fillings, root canals, crowns, bridges, caps, or extractions, you know that the costs are sky-high for these dental procedures. But if you’ve always had good, healthy teeth and gums, unexpected dental work could really put a dent in your budget.
