How Dental Insurance Works

Just like car insurance, your dental insurance has a deductible, or minimum amount that you have to cover before the insurance company steps in to pay for services. Many dental insurances also have a yearly maximum, so you need to avoid exceeding that amount.

Every dental insurance policy is different, but most dental insurances have the following coverage:

We understand that the world of dental insurance can be confusing, but our experts can help you comprehend your policy’s benefits so that you can make the best treatment decisions and save on out-of-pocket costs.

What Is the Difference between Medical and Dental Insurance?

Although medical insurance does cover annual checkups and the like, it is mostly focused on treating existing problems. In contrast, dental insurance is centered on preventing them in the first place. Dental issues don’t just go away on their own like some medical conditions—they can only get worse if they aren’t addressed by a professional. As a result, it’s more affordable to fix a dental problem early while it’s small and easy to get rid of than to wait until it becomes a larger, more damaging problem later on. That’s why your dental insurance company is so willing to cover preventive and most minor restorative care.
