Between paying bills, rent, car insurance, and the list goes on — the last thing you need to worry about is having to wait and save up to get your dental needs taken care of. Indianapolis Family Dentistry offers 3 different in-office plans so that your whole family can maintain happy and healthy smiles without having to worry about paying a massive chunk of money out of your pocket each time you visit. Read on to learn about what services your insurance typically covers, and how these plans can help!
What Does Dental Insurance Typically Cover?
Dental insurance plans typically focus on preventive dental care, so they completely cover each of your semi-annual checkups and cleanings. Often, your plan may also cover preventive treatments such as X-rays, fluoride treatments, and sealants.
When you need restorative procedures like fillings, crowns or bridges, root canals, or tooth extractions, your insurance may cover the bulk of the cost. If you have an insurance plan that requires you to choose the least expensive procedure, you can speak with your dentist so you make the decision that’s best for your oral health and also your budget.
If you have a deductible you need to meet, keep this in mind when scheduling appointments for treatments and procedures. Typically, preventive procedures are covered no matter whether you have met your deductible or not.
What Is An In-Office Plan?
An in-office plan is a great option for somebody without dental insurance. These plans are affordable memberships that allow you to take care of your dental needs without having to fork out the entire cost of the treatment. Some benefits of these plans include:
- Covers preventive care and offers discounts on other treatments.
- They cover you for 12 months from the date of purchase.
