FAQ’s about Dental Insurance

Q:  Does my dental insurance cover periodontal treatment?

A:  Most dental insurances will cover a portion of your periodontal treatment.  It is very rare to have dental insurance cover the whole cost of the procedure.   Plans usually also have a limit or a maximum amount that the insurance will pay.  Once you reach this maximum amount, the remainder of the treatment fees are your responsibility.  At our office, we try our best to give you an accurate estimate of the amount the insurance might pay and what the out of pocket expense will be for our patients.  We also offer many different payment options to help patients afford the treatment they need!

Q:  Does my dental insurance cover dental implants?

A:  Only a few insurance plans cover dental implants.  Most plans that cover dental implants only cover 50% of the implant cost.

Q:  Will my dental insurance cover all of my cleanings and exams?

A:  Again, all insurance plans are different for each individual.  Most insurances will cover 2 cleanings and 2 exams per year.  We’ve seen a limited number of patients who have benefits that exceed this.  With a patient battling periodontal disease, we recommend cleanings every 3-4 months.  This means that some of these cleanings or exams, although necessary, may be out of pocket for our patients.
