Which Dental Procedures Does Insurance Typically Cover?
Typically, most dental insurance covers two preventive visits to the dentist’s office every year. Depending on the policy, you might also receive help in covering the costs of the care and treatments you receive during preventive visits, as well as fillings, crowns, root canals, and procedures such as tooth extractions. Some plans may even cover getting braces or treating gum disease, or dentures and bridges to replace missing teeth and improve the quality of your life.
Other plans might cover a portion of the treatment. That means you will be responsible for paying for the rest of the amount. You may be responsible for the full amount of treatment if a deductible applies to your plan. Likewise, you may be responsible for the full amount if you reach a maximum amount, as determined by your plan.
However, every plan is different, and the needs for every patient who comes into a dentist’s office like Stiles Dental Care are different, too. Coverages are often determined on a case by case basis, so it is in your best interest to let the professionals help you figure out what you will owe for your dental treatments.
