Your home oral hygiene routine is vital for a healthy smile, but your teeth and gums also rely on regular care from a dentist. It’s recommended everyone sees their dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. If you’re like many people, you might worry about a large dental bill, but you have nothing to fear! Our office can work with your dental insurance in Prince Albert so you can achieve optimal oral health while staying within your budget.
Dental insurance focuses on prevention to keep your mouth healthy. Research shows that every $1 spent on prevention can help you save as much as $50 on restorative services because you’ll lessen the likelihood of common oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Most plans are designed to help patients be proactive in their care, which reduces how much they spend on treatments overall.
Generally, dental insurance can be used to help pay for a wide range of procedures, such as checkups and cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, extractions, dentures, and more. The amount of coverage tends to be higher for routine/preventive treatments, and the exact amount that a plan will pay for a given procedure varies from policy to policy. It’s recommended that you read over your plan, talk to our team, or consult your insurance provider before committing to a treatment so you can know exactly what you’ll be expected to pay out-of-pocket.
You have the option to choose any dentist who accepts your policy. Typically, those who are in-network with your plan will be able to offer more savings versus those that are out-of-network. However, visiting an out-of-network practice offers its own advantages, as they have more flexibility and can better personalize someone’s care because they are less restricted by the terms of their policy. Often, the difference in coverage between visiting an in-network or out-of-network practice is negligible, so it’s recommended that patients talk to a practice’s team to get a better understanding of how their plan will be used.
