Dental Insurance Basics


Individuals and families choose Dental Insurance to cover dental care and any dental problems. These problems include such things as broken teeth in accidents or after having a fall. Dental insurance can be flexible and/or structured in order to meet different types of needs.  Your dentist office can help you learn more about it.

Most dental plans provide coverage for two dental checkups per year, including cleanings. Simple procedures like cleaning and filling the teeth are usually covered by these insurances. Preventative care is just that; it prevents you from getting major dental problems that require extensive and expensive procedures or treatments. Dental insurance companies are smart to provide basic care to avoid paying for high priced restorative care. Getting your teeth checked and cleaned regularly can keep you from needing major treatments in the future. Dental insurance can be obtained for a reasonable price compared to the cost of expensive dental care..

Many companies provide dental insurance for their employees as part of a benefits package.  Group HMO dental insurances work in a slightly different manner. Employees of these companies are provided a list of dentists who are registered with the insurance company. They can approach them with their dental problems and get the appropriate insurance coverage. Some dentists may only take Group insurance or established patients.  Check with your dentist to find out which insurance they take.

Dental insurance can have its challenges like any other insurance. There are forms to be filled out, claim letters to be deciphered, and monthly premiums, which can make the process overwhelming to some. In group dental insurances, most of the claim letters and premium payments are handled by the employers. There may also be instances when the claim is not released or is released after a long time, which can cause problems. Dental coverage may come with a plan maximum benefit per year. If this limit is exceeded, the indivicual will have to pay out of pocket. This can be a problem considering many dental insurances provide a limit of $1,000 per year; but a single root canal operation may cost $3,500.Comparison shopping is helpful when choosing your dental plan.

Dental insurances are reasonably priced for purchase. A dental insurance for an entire family can start around $100 in annual premiums and go up from there depending on the coverages chosen. Group insurance premiums are marginally less.
