Most plans are a 100-80-50 Which means this, 100% preventative is covered, xrays, cleanings, consults, and usually 2 emergency consults per year. (This is a broad generalization and can be tailored according to your plan). 80% of basic treatment covered, such as fillings, etc. Depending upon the type of filling and how complex, you may only have to pay around $40 for a basic filling. (Once again, this is all dependent on what your Dentist charges) and 50% of Major work. Crowns, bridges etc. At $650 for a basic crown, 50% is a definite plus! You can contact your Dental insurance company to get local dentists in your area that accept their plans. This means that they have entered into a contract with the dentist that they will only charge a specified amount (agreed upon by both parties) So you will not be charged more than your co-payment and percentage due. Whereas going out of network may subject you to extra charges if a Dentist charges more than your insurance company allows.

You’d be surprise to realize that your mouth can tell a story and help diagnose diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal irregularities. Regular dental care visits are vital to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other conditions affecting your mouth.
Your dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam at your initial dental visit. This includes checking your jaw joints, radiographs to check for cavities, and an examination of your entire mouth and surrounding soft tissues, checking for precancerous or cancerous lesions, oral sores, and gum disease. They will also examine at any existing fillings, crowns and other current restorations.
Professional dental cleanings are usually performed by Registered Dental Hygienists. At your cleaning appointment you will have a dental exam and your hygienist will remove any plaque film that forms on the teeth. The plaque produces toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease. They will also remove any tartar, which is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments. The hygienist will polish all your teeth and remove any remaining stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.Buy Now
