Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Dental insurance has a different focus than regular health insurance. A standard health insurance plan is meant to help you pay for emergency care, but while dental insurance does include benefits for emergencies, it’s designed in a way to encourage you to seek preventive care in order to avoid the larger dental problems altogether. Checkups and cleanings tend to receive higher coverage than restorative care, meaning a preventive approach to dental care will help save you money.


What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Most dental insurance plans follow the 100-80-50 structure. This means that preventive care usually receives around 100% coverage, basic restorative care gets roughly 80% coverage, and major restorative procedures receive 50% coverage. What counts as a basic or major procedure depends on which insurance plan you have. Also, not all plans follow this exact structure; be sure to get in touch with your insurance carrier to confirm what coverage is available before you commit to any treatments.
