Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
It’s important to note that dental insurance is not meant to be used in the same way as medical insurance. While medical insurance is traditionally only used to manage a medical emergency, such as a bad illness or a serious injury, dental insurance is meant to be used on a regular basis. It’s precisely why preventive care is largely covered by dental insurance, in some cases as much as 100 percent! Furthermore, regular use is the best way to reduce risk of a dental emergency or serious restorative problems later.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
While you should always look over your dental insurance plan’s provisions in more detail, most plans operate in a similar fashion. More often than not, your coverage will look similar to the following breakdown:
- Preventive Care – Includes exams, cleanings and X-rays in most cases. Generally covered at or close to 100 percent.
- Minor Restorative Care – Includes dental fillings and root canal therapy. Usually covered between 70 and 80 percent.
- Major Restorative Care – Includes crowns, bridges and dentures. Typically covered up to 50 percent.
