How Dental Insurance Works

Every dental plan comes with its own unique details. Generally speaking, though, many PPO policies provide the following coverage:

  • Preventive care, including cleanings, exams, and routine X-rays, is usually 100% covered.
  • Minor services, such as fillings and non-surgical extractions, are often up to 80% covered.
  • Major services, including crowns, dentures, and some types of oral surgery, are around 50% covered. (Not all plans cover major services.)
  • Orthodontia is up to 50% covered under some premium plans.
  • Cosmetic services are almost never covered.

Your plan may also come with a number of stipulations, such as a deductible, a waiting period before you can receive coverage for certain services, and an annual maximum.

What Is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?

Dental insurance applies exclusively to services that benefit oral health. It also has a strong preventive focus, which is why it offers such thorough coverage for services like cleanings and exams. Medical insurance has a broader focus. However, it does not cover basic dental services. In some instances, it might cover certain major procedures, such as some types of oral surgery.
