Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Typically, a dental insurance plan will place different procedures into a number of categories, and each category will receive a certain level of coverage. But, before you have access to this coverage, you may need to pay some money out of pocket, which is called a deductible. Also, everyone on a plan is entitled to a certain dollar amount of coverage each benefit period, but be advised it does NOT roll over year to year.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Generally speaking dental insurance plans break down coverage into three groups:

  • Preventive procedures (cleanings, checkups, X-rays)
  • Basic restorative procedures (bonding, fillings)
  • Advanced restorative procedures (crowns, extractions)

The percentage covered in each category and specific services vary between plans, so be sure to look over your policy before committing to a treatment!
