Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Under a dental insurance plan, the provider sets aside some money to help cover your dental care in exchange for premiums that are paid on a monthly basis. Unlike medical care, dental insurance is structured with prevention in mind rather than focusing on emergency care. Simply put, higher coverage is usually offered for preventive services to encourage you to attend your biannual checkups and cleanings; this ultimately helps you avoid dental problems that would require more expensive care.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

When using insurance, it’s important to confirm what percentage of your care is covered under your plan and what percentage you’ll have to pay out of your own pocket. Cleanings and checkups are often completely covered; meanwhile, minor restorations often receive up to 80% coverage while major restorations are usually closer to 50%. Cosmetic services aren’t normally included in a dental plan, but there are sometimes exceptions if there’s some significant health benefit that the treatment has to offer.
