How Does Aetna Dental Insurance Work?

Aetna offers a flexible dental plan for families and individuals. In Texas, the PPO option is known as a Participating Dental Network (PDN). This just means you have freedom to choose your provider without necessarily paying any penalty fees. Aetna dental insurance offers coverage on preventive, basic, and major dental services as needed.

While the specifics of your plan will depend on a few specifics -- like your deductible, coinsurance, maximum, and benefit levels -- you can typically expect the following from your dental insurance:

  • Preventive services are fully covered, including two checkups and cleanings and an annual set of X-rays.
  • Additional preventive treatments, like dental sealants and fluoride, may be covered for children.
  • Restorative dental care, like fillings, crowns, bridges, and other treatments, are covered between 50% and 80%.
  • Orthodontic treatment is partially covered.
  • Elective procedures and cosmetic treatments are typically not eligible for dental insurance coverage.
