What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Preventive dentistry is simply the routine practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy.  Preventative dental care includes your dental exams, xrays, dental cleanings with your dental hygienist, dental sealants and flouride treatment.   Most insurance companies, realizing the importance and benefit of these services, cover preventative dental services at 100%.  

While preventive dental procedures help you avoid potential issues or catch and correct them early to keep your smile healthy; basic services are restorative work to fix damage that has already occurred. Basic dental services include fillings, root canal therapy, dental extractions and periodontal cleanings.  Once your have met your annual dental deductible, your dental insurance company will pay a percentage (typically 80%) of your basic dental services.  

Major dental services are complex dental work to restore decayed, broken or missing teeth.  Major dental services include crowns, bridges, dentures and partial dentures, and dental implants and implant crowns. Your dental deductible will usually apply to major dental services and once paid, your dental insurance company will pay a percentage (typically 50%) of your major dental services.  

What Do I Do If I Don't Have Dental Insurance?

Do not allow a lack of dental insurance to keep you from receiving the dental services you need.  A small investment in your oral health can help save your money in the long run.  Keeping up with your preventative dental visits - your regular dental cleanings and exams- can save you from painful toothaches, tooth loss and expensive restorative treatment later.   At Excellence in Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale we offer financing through CareCredit.
