Does Dental Insurance Cover Implant Procedures?
- Posted on: Jul 16 2012
Many dental insurance policies cover the cost of placing dental implants. Every policy has its own inclusions and exclusions, making it best to consult with your insurance carrier prior to committing to this procedure. The helpful staff at out Arlington area office can also help you work with your insurance to ensure you get the procedures you require for a strong, healthy smile.
Why Replace Missing Teeth
When you are missing one or more teeth, your entire mouth suffers. Missing teeth are an aesthetic issue, but they are much more than that. Missing teeth change the tension and strength of your bite. They can interfere with speaking and chewing, and cause adjacent teeth to slip out of place. The jawbone underneath the missing tooth can also begin to deteriorate resulting in shrinkage or collapse.
All tooth replacement options will address the functional issues, but only dental implants can prevent your jaw from shrinking. Due to this, many insurance companies consider dental implants to be necessary and are willing to cover the cost. During your initial consultation with one of our Arlington implant dentists, we can further discuss the benefits of this procedure with you.
If you live in or around Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, or McLean, Virginia and need to replace one or more missing teeth, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics to schedule an initial consultation today.
