How Dental Insurance Works

Every insurance plan comes with its own unique set of details, so you will have to examine your policy to learn how it applies in various situations. In the meantime, here is a general overview of the coverage provided by most standard PPO plans.

  • Preventive care: 100% covered.
  • Minor restorative care: 70 – 80% covered.
  • Major services: Around 50% covered.
  • Orthodontia: May not be covered. 50% coverage for certain plans.
  • Cosmetic treatments: Usually not covered.

What Is the Difference Between Dental and Medical Insurance?

It seems counterintuitive that dental and medical insurance are two different entities, especially since oral health plays such a huge role in overall wellness. However, both types of insurance have a distinct role to play in keeping you healthy.

Dental insurance has a strong preventive focus. It covers things like cleanings, checkups, and routine restorative care. Medical insurance does not cover preventive oral health services. Usually, the only preventive care it covers is for general physical health. It might cover certain major oral services, such as some types of surgery. In some cases, dental and medical insurance can even overlap.
