To learn a little more about using your dental insurance to cover periodontal care, be sure to read our short guide below.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Most dental insurance plans are primarily designed to help patients pay for preventive treatments like checkups and cleanings, but many also offer partial coverage for gum disease therapy and dental implant services. Depending on how a policy defines them, up to 50% of the cost may be covered by insurance. Regardless of the amount, you’ll be asked to pay your portion on the day of your treatment, and the rest is billed to insurance.
What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?
For periodontal care, there is a lot of variance when it comes to dental insurance coverage. Most plans will cover periodontal cleanings and minor surgical procedures (like gum grafts), but the percentage isn’t consistent across providers. For dental implants, while the majority of plans will pay for exams, X-rays, and restorations, only some will help pay for the implant surgery. This is why we recommend reading over your plan and talking to your provider before coming to see us. If you still have questions about your coverage after this, we’ll be happy to help you get answers.
