Some patients might feel anxious about their upcoming treatment, but others might feel more concerned about the end of the visit when it’s time to make payments for care. We never want you to let financial concerns prevent you from getting the healthy smile you deserve here at Healthy Smiles Dental Care. That’s why we always take the time to help you by working directly with your insurance company. On this page, you can get helpful tips on getting the most out of your dental benefits while you’re here.
In most dental plans, there is a maximum amount that they are willing to pay for dental services annually. However, you should not expect benefits to cover all dental services the same. In fact, most plans are designed with preventive care in mind. That’s because preventive services are more effective at stopping more complicated and costly dental issues from forming and causing severe damage to your oral health. If you want to maximize your dental benefits, the most effective way to do so is to stay on top of regular preventive checkups.
In most dental plans, insurance covers between 80 and 100 percent of the cost for cleanings as well as other services designed to prevent oral health problems. When it comes to minor restorations to repair teeth, coverage usually falls between 70 and 80 percent. With more major services, such as dental crowns and bridges, most insurance companies will cover at least the cost of treatment. However, every plan is different, so it’s important to review your benefits. We’re happy to go over your plan with you so you can ask questions if you have them.
