What You Need to Know Right Now about Your Dental Insurance

Have you ever wondered why medical insurance doesn't cover your dental care? It’s well established that our mouths are the gateway to our bodies, so what’s the disconnect?

It wasn’t until 1840 that an “official” dental college (Baltimore College of Dental Surgery) even existed. At that time dentistry was proposed as a medical specialty and rejected. The first dental practice was established in Alabama in 1841, but 20 years passed before the American Dental Association (ADA) was formed.

This indifference toward dentistry is still reflected today in the lack of medical coverage for dental treatment. And even if you have dental insurance, you aren’t a lot better off because keeping monthly premiums affordable results in reduced benefits.

Prevention is Still Your Best Bet!

Unfortunately, the inclusion of dental treatment in medical coverage is not yet on the horizon. If you want to keep your costs low, your best bet will always be prevention.

  • Be conscientious about making and keeping routine exams and cleaning appointments.
  • Commit yourself to learning how to brush correctly, and then follow through every day
  • Dental problems don’t heal themselves, so if you think something is going on, make an appointment. Delaying treatment can result in more costly treatment in the future.
  • If anxiety is a problem for you and causes you to neglect your oral health, share your concerns with your dentist so you can talk about calming sedation methods.
