Our skilled team is happy to work with nearly any dental plan and can provide valuable insight for getting the most bang for your insurance buck.
Dental Insurance vs. Medical Insurance
While medical insurance applies a little coverage to diagnostic and preventive care, it mostly covers the treatment of conditions. On the other hand, dental insurance works a little differently. It focuses primarily on prevention. Why? Unlike some medical conditions, like a cold, oral issues never get better over time; they just progress and cause more damage. By taking preventive steps, you can avoid the need for more extensive and expensive treatment later on.
Your Dental Insurance Plan Coverage
Although every dental insurance plan may be a little different from the next, they all generally have coverage that resembles the following:
- Preventive services (e.g., cleanings and checkups)— about 80 to 100 percent covered.
- Minor restorative services (e.g., tooth-colored fillings)—about 70 to 80 percent covered.
- Major restorative services (e.g., dental crowns)—about 50 percent covered.
If you have questions about your specific plan’s coverage, ask our team for help. We can explain your benefits and recommend ways to use them to your advantage.
