We Welcome All Dental Insurance
Dental insurance is designed to make paying for your necessary treatments affordable and more accessible for the whole family. Whether you need a basic cleaning and checkup completed or a new restoration placed, you don’t have to break the bank by meeting the entire balance on your own. Our dental office accepts many major dental plans from notable insurance providers. If you have questions regarding your coverage, we’ll do everything we can to help you understand your benefits.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
While many people treat dental insurance in the same way they do their medical insurance, they couldn’t be more different. For one, medical insurance is only used when it’s absolutely needed, such as when an illness or emergency appears. In contrast, dental insurance is designed to be used regularly, ideally for preventive treatments like cleanings, checkups, and X-rays. These treatments, along with at-home oral care, are the most effective methods for preventing the majority of dental disease.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
While you should always read your dental insurance plan’s coverage in detail, most plans cover certain treatments in similar ways. Below, you’ll find a breakdown of the type of coverage you can expect when the time comes to pay for treatments.
Preventive Care – Includes checkups, cleanings, X-rays and occasionally fluoride treatment. Most plans cover 80 to 100 percent of your costs.
Minor Restorative Care – Typically reserved for treatments that involve restoring damaged or infected teeth, including tooth-colored fillings and root canal therapy. Generally covers 70 to 80 percent of costs.
Major Restorative Care – Includes more complex restorative treatments like dental crowns, dentures, and bridges. Many plans cover 50 to 60 percent of your costs.
Our In-Network PPO Dental Insurance Providers
Being in-network generally means you can save more on your out-of-pocket costs compared to being out-of-network. However, that doesn’t mean that your total won’t ever be comparable to in-network costs. Below, you’ll find a list of Moulton Dentistry’s in-network dental insurance providers.
