What Are Some Benefits of Dental Insurance?

Having dental insurance can give you some much-needed peace of mind. A good dental insurance plan will provide coverage for services that range from routine exams to root canals and extractions. Here are some other items that can be covered by dental insurance.

  • Twice-yearly cleanings
  • Amalgam (silver) cavity fillings
  • Yearly x-rays
  • Crowns
  • Root canals
  • Other types of tooth repair

The amount of coverage provided by each dental plan will vary, so it’s important to check with your insurance provider to confirm what and how much is covered. In many cases, you’ll be expected to pay a copay out of pocket. It all depends on the details of your dental plan.

Does My Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Check your insurance policy to find out if you’re subject to any waiting periods, tooth-extraction clauses or pre-authorization requirements. It’s also a good idea to know in advance of any dental work what your copay will be. In general, the following items are usually not covered by dental insurance, but check with your provider for confirmation.

  • Tooth-colored (composite) fillings
  • Tooth whitening
  • Orthodontics, such as braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Dental implants

There can always be exceptions to the above list, so it’s helpful to check with your insurance provider. As you can see, even if you have dental insurance, you still may be responsible for paying for part or all of specific treatments. Our dental office understands that, and we offer flexible financing options and dental discount plans.

How Can I Find a Dentist in Westland by Insurance?

Are you trying to find the answer to, “Which dentist takes my insurance?” An excellent place to begin is to see if you have an HMO or PPO plan. A dentist that accepts HMO insurance is part of your insurance provider’s network of dental health providers. A dentist that accepts PPO insurance usually isn’t restricted by contract and can accept a lot of insurance plans. HMO plans tend to be cheaper than PPO plans, and PPO plans generally provide more flexibility when it comes to choosing a dental care provider.
