Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Many people may think that dental insurance works in the same way as medical insurance, but this is actually not really the case. The fact is dental insurance is designed to be used on a regular basis, while medical insurance is typically used when an emergency or serious illness appears. When you use your dental insurance benefits on routine checkups and cleanings, you actually save money because you catch issues before they become serious and you protect yourself from serious dental issues like tartar, which can only be removed via professional cleanings.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
While every dental plan has small differences that you should keep in mind, most of them cover treatments in the same way. For example, your dental insurance plan will likely cover treatments to a certain percentage as listed below.
- Basic Preventive Care– Includes basic cleanings and checkups. Typically covered at or close to 100 percent.
- Minor Restorative Care – Includes dental fillings and is usually covered between 70 and 80 percent.
- Major Restorative Care – Includes more complex restorations and treatments like crowns, bridges, dentures and root canal therapy. Usually covered at 50 percent.
