Making the Most of Your Dental Insurance Options

How familiar are you with your dental insurance options? Knowing your policy inside and out is important for you to make the most of your options. Insurance policies have time limits and caps on the amount you can spend within the year.

Know Your Limits

Dental insurance plans have an annual maximum. It can be as little as one thousand dollars or up to two thousand. Be aware of how much your benefits are and the time in which you have to use them. Many dental offices will work with you to make the most of your dental insurance options. Mission Bend is one of them. Our business manager will be happy to help you determine your benefit limits.

Take Advantage of Your Dental Insurance Options

Many people tend to put off going to the dentist until absolutely necessary. Dental insurance coverage usually completely pays for preventive care and at the very least, an annual visit with comprehensive care will help prevent serious problems. Be aware that some policies do not fully cover restoration procedures, however good companies will usually cover at least 80% of the cost for fillings and other general dentistry costs.

Some restorative procedures such as dental bridge work may only be partially covered. Other procedures such as cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening may not be covered at all. Check your policy to find out your insurance options.

At Mission Bend, we want our patients to benefit fully from their dental insurance options. If you need help determining the best way to schedule your dental work to take full advantage of your insurance benefits, just let us know. Call today to make your appointment for a comprehensive oral exam.
