A new study claims the cost of dental crown costs for the average American are $6,000 higher than what they were 20 years ago.ABC News reported that the report by a team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard Medical School, and other institutions has found that the average person’s average annual dental care expenses have grown more than $1,600.
According to the report, this increases the cost to $3,600 in the last five years.
ABC News reports that the authors of the study say that despite this increase, the average annual health care spending of American adults has not increased in the past five years, but has remained relatively flat.
In 2016, the American Medical Association (AMA) called for a nationwide ban on the use of crowns, citing a growing trend of chronic dental infections.ABC reports that this trend, however, has not translated into a decrease in health care costs.
According the report:The report also found that there were fewer than 4,000 dentists nationwide in 2016, compared to 7,000 in 2003.ABCNews reports that some of the findings include:Dental crowns have become more expensive in recent years due to increased competition among dental hygienists and dentists working in a more centralized, centralized setting.
The report notes that, in some states, consumers have been able to purchase crowns without the need to go through a hospital emergency room, which is a common practice in other industrialized nations.ABC reported that in recent months, more than a dozen states have introduced bills to limit the use and use of dental suction devices in the same manner as the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that oral hygiene products cannot be used in places of public accommodation.ABC said that many of these bills, if passed, could make it harder for consumers to afford the health care services they need.
