Dental insurance benefits are meant to keep your smile healthy and reduce dental care costs through preventative measures. Knowing how to take advantage of your coverage can help you keep your teeth vibrant for life.
What if I Need Treatment?
If you have insurance and want to find out how much of your dental treatment is covered, there are ways to “work” your annual allowance in your favor.
Your annual allowance is the dollar amount for dental treatment that’s covered within the year. As long as you meet your insurance deductible, you have a specific limit of funds you can use toward required therapies, such as:
- Gum disease treatment
- Porcelain crowns and bridges
- Composite fillings
- Dental implants
- Root canal therapy
What’s Left of My Annual Allowance?
If you’re unsure as to the dollar amount left on your annual allowance, our insurance coordinators can pre-verify your coverage before treatment is initiated. That way you’re not caught off guard by any unexpected dental expenses. We’ll break down the policy benefits and do the math for you, so that you know what you can realistically expect your insurance to cover. This courtesy is something we extend to each of our patients, regardless as to how little (or how much) restorative treatment they require.
Behind on your cleaning? Preventative care won’t affect your allowable, so go ahead and get it scheduled at your earliest convenience.
