Money for dental services is waiting. What conditions must be met to be able to use them

According to the portal “Super Express”, a visit to the dentist is not cheap thing. This is one of the reasons why many Poles put it off as long as possible. Many dental procedures are reimbursed by the National Health Fund, which requires only a valid health insurance.

During visits, we can use anesthesia reimbursed by the National Health Fund. Prevention and treatment of deciduous and permanent teeth in children and adolescents up to 18 years of age are also reimbursed. Orthodontic treatment is also reimbursed, although it covers children up to the age of 12 only.

Private dental treatment

Private dental services are getting more and more expensive, but many people decide to use them. This is due to the long waiting period for the dentist to receive the fund, as well as the unsatisfactory quality of services.

According to the “Business Insider” portal, the cost of root canal treatment starts from PLN 600 to even PLN 1200. We will pay from PLN 100 to PLN 150 for a regular inspection, PLN 200 to PLN 300 for removing limescale. Similarly, we will pay for the insertion of a seal. From PLN 200 to PLN 400 will cost us a tooth extraction.
