Understanding Your Dental Insurance Plan

Dental insurance plans come with various coverage options, deductibles, co-pays, and annual maximums, making it crucial to understand the specifics of your plan. This understanding is the first step toward optimizing your dental care expenses and ensuring you receive the care you need.

Coverage Categories

Most dental services fall into three primary categories:

  • Preventive Care: Routine check-ups, cleanings, and X-rays, often covered at 100%.
  • Basic Procedures: Fillings, root canals, and other basic restorative work, typically covered at a lower percentage.
  • Major Procedures: Crowns, bridges, dentures, and other major restorative work, usually covered at the lowest percentage.

Familiarizing yourself with these categories and your plan’s details will help you effectively manage and plan your dental care.
