Keep smiling with dental insurance!
Everyone knows nowadays that paying attention to oral hygiene is not a matter of how you look, but rather a way to maintain overall health. Yet, the truth is, even if you see it as a health issue, dental care can sometimes be quite costly.
That is why dental insurance may seem like THE solution for no longer putting off important dental work because of the cost.
In all reality, “traditional” health insurance covers basic dental care. But as soon as you need more complicated treatment for your teeth or your gums (crowns, bridges, implants, etc.) only supplementary dental insurance will bring you peace of mind: it actually covers more complex care and sometimes enables access to free dental services or preferential rates.
The treatments covered by supplementary dental insurance are generally as follows:
- Dentist, periodontologist and orthodontist visits
- Dental care (scaling, cavities, tooth extraction…)
- Periodontal treatments
- Dental prostheses (implants, bridges, crowns…)
