Except sometimes it’s the other way around! For example, in human dentistry, insurance won’t cover root planing (scaling) until there’s a certain amount of bone loss. But if you get root planing, that will prevent further bone loss. So you either have to suffer with infection for several months/years until you lose enough bone to be covered (and maybe lose your teeth) or shell out hundreds for the root planing to save your teeth. It’s absolutely backwards.Its just so frustrating that in human med they want all this preventive med and get it done pretty quick but when you actually need a dr when things go wrong things move at the pace of molasses.
