Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

In order to have a good understanding of your plan, you’ll need to be able to understand some basic terms that you’ll see:

  • Yearly Maximum. This is the amount of money that your dental insurance company will cover in services that you receive over the course of a year.
  • Deductible. This is the pre-determined amount that you’ll need to pay out-of-pocket before receiving coverage for any services you receive. The average deductible ranges from $50-$100.
  • Premium. This is the annual or monthly amount that you pay to receive benefits.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

It’s important to keep in mind that every dental insurance plan can vary, so to find out if yours will cover a specific treatment, it’s best to just call them directly. That being said, most plans use a 100-80-50 coverage structure. This means that they cover 100 percent of preventive care, like checkups and cleanings, 80 percent of basic treatments, and 50 percent of more invasive procedures. This means the best use of your dental insurance plan is to proactively upkeep your smile instead of only seeking out care when you notice there’s a problem.
