How does dental insurance work and protect me?

Dental insurance is important for all of us and we must consider the best dental plans on the market. The various dental plans are not all the same and a comparison should be made. You will have to consider such treatments as:

•    Accidents
•    Caps
•    Checkups
•    Cleaning
•    Cosmetics
•    Crowns
•    Emergencies
•    Extractions
•    Fillings
•    Hygiene
•    Polishing
•    Restorations
•    Root canal work
•    Scaling
•    Treatment
•    Veneers
•    Whitening
•    X-rays

When choosing an appropriate dental plan ensure the following are considered:

•    The annual treatments required upon your dental history
•    The amount of cover required
•    The excess payments involved
•    What is excluded from the policy?

A standard plan will cover for those normal dental treatments and emergencies, but a top of the range plan will provide more comprehensive cover when you think you will need it. Read the terms and conditions carefully as there may be existing medical conditions which may not be covered and time period initially where cover may not be available.

Regular visits to your dentist will help to keep your dental costs to a reasonable level of expense. Having a healthy diet and cleaning your teeth with a good tooth brush will help keep decay away. Clean your teeth using a circular motion for at least two minutes twice a day. Eating less acidic and food with sugar will also keep expenses down.

Visiting the dental hygienist twice a year is a must and problems can be stopped before the dental problems spread.  
Adjust the excess to see if the premiums result in any additional savings.

Read the dental insurance term and conditions carefully and store the documents in an easy to find place.
