Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

You might assume that dental insurance is just like health insurance, but there’s one important difference: dental insurance is mostly focused on stopping health issues from occurring as opposed to treating them after the damage has already been done. Checkups, cleanings, and other preventive dentistry services tend to receive the most coverage. That does not mean, however, that oral surgery isn’t covered at all, and we’ll make sure that you always receive the full benefits that you are entitled to.

What Your Dental Insurance
Plan Covers

Most plans follow a 100-80-50 structure where preventive services are completely covered, fillings and other minor restorative services are 80 percent covered, and dental crowns and other major restorative services are 50 percent covered. Wisdom tooth extraction often falls under the “major services” category. Dental implants are sometimes not covered by dental insurance, but you might receive benefits for other aspects of the process. If you call us, we can go over the specifics of your policy.
