If you are 65 or older, having a senior dental insurance plan can make a significant improvement to your well-being and your health care budget. You will save on common procedures like root canals, and you will save on dentures and crowns. Senior dental insurance plans also offer coverage on routine trips to the dentist for check-ups or teeth cleanings.
Medicare offers benefits only for medically necessary aspects of senior health. As a result, senior dental insurance, as is the case with senior hearing plans and senior vision plans, is not covered by Medicare or Medicare supplement insurance plans. Some seniors opt to get dental discount cards to help cover dental costs but soon learn these discount cards provide minimal coverage.
A senior dental insurance plan can provide you great all-around coverage for a wide range of procedures.
Senior dental insurance, depending on the plan, can provide benefits for:
- Root canal
- Crowns and crown repair
- Periodontics (treatment of the gums)
It is sad that so many seniors go without the dental coverage they need.
Some avoid dental care altogether because of the prohibitive cost of some treatments when payments come out of pocket. The fact is, finding a senior dental plan that fits your budget can save you a lot of money in the end. Dental care is essential to seniors, and we all know a good, healthy smile still goes a long way.
