How Does Dental Insurance Work?

As your dental provider for Delta Dental insurance, we want you to be fully informed about how your plan works. Dental insurance makes preventive care cheap (or free) to help ensure you never need costly or complex treatments later on.

With most dental insurance plans, patients can receive two checkups and cleanings with X-rays for free each year. Additional preventive treatments, like dental sealants or fluoride treatments, may be covered as well. Dental insurance covers a large portion of necessary restorative treatments (like a crown, bridge, filling, root canal, or extraction).

When you come in for a service that’s covered under your plan, you can leave without any money exchanging hands. You’ll need to pay the portion that’s not covered for restorative care at the time the services are rendered. Cosmetic treatments are usually not covered by dental insurance.

Maximizing Your Delta Dental Benefits

Too many people let their dental insurance benefits slip away without really making the most out of their plan. To avoid letting that happen to you, it’s important that you find out just what you’re covered for annually. Many dental insurance plans have an annual maximum, or an amount up to which your plan will pay for services. During the years that you reach your deductible, you will also want to make sure you reach the annual maximum. We can talk you through your options and any necessary procedures to help you receive the full benefit of your dental insurance plan.

Healthy Smiles Are Built on Preventive Care

If you have dental insurance, be sure to schedule and attend a checkup and cleaning every six months. These regular visits are key to a healthy, long-lasting smile -- and since they’re free, you don’t have any reason not to come in!

During a checkup and cleaning, our hygiene team will remove all the plaque and tartar buildup that has had the chance to accumulate since your last visit. We will also take notes on any periodontal pockets that you have, or the spaces between your teeth and gums that indicate the presence of gum disease. Your dentist will then take a thorough look around your smile, looking out for cavities, infection, worn dental work, and even oral cancer. If issues are detected, we will put together a plan to help you get the restorative care you need as soon as possible.
