We don’t want to see you waste your benefits or put your smile at risk. If you need a dentist who takes insurance in Canton, we’re here for you. We’ll help you maximize your benefits to keep your smile healthy.
Dental Benefits Basics
Every month you pay a premium for your specific policy, which gives you access to a variety of cost-savings coverage opportunities. You can get the preventive care you need for only a small co-payment, so there’s no reason to delay your routine cleanings and checkups. Even with the best prevention, a problem can still occur. It doesn’t need to go untreated. After paying your annual deductible, you can use your yearly limit to pay a portion of the cost. At the end of the year, your benefits expire. They do not carry over for accumulation, and you aren’t reimbursed for anything you don’t use.
What Treatments are Covered?
Every dental plan is unique based on the coverage outlined in your policy; however, most include:
- 100% preventive coverage.
- 80% minor restorative coverage.
- 50% major restorative coverage.
How Can I Maximize My Coverage?
Dental insurance is designed with prevention in mind because maintaining your oral health reduces your overall costs for care. In fact, research shows every $1 spent on prevention can save you as much as $50 on restorative or emergency services. As a result, most insurance plans cover 1-2 preventive visits per year. This allows your dentist to keep your smile healthy to reduce the need for a costly treatment down the road. If a problem develops, you’ll have the coverage you need to quickly treat the issue, so it doesn’t worsen.
Do I Need to Visit an In-Network Dentist?
Your insurance carrier will recommend a dentist in Canton who is in-network. This means they have pre-negotiated rates with the dentist to reduce the amount you need to pay. You aren’t limited to only visiting an in-network dentist. You can visit any location who accepts your coverage, even if they are out-of-network. You can still use your benefits, but you’ll need to pay the difference between your insurance’s allowable amounts and the dentist’s fees.
Our office is proud to work with both in-network and out-of-network patients to help you make the most of your dental insurance benefits in Canton.
