What is Dental Insurance?



Kin Hubbard once said, “Fun is like insurance; the older you get, the more it costs.”
That may be true but it is no fun to pay for insurance only to discover that it doesn’t cover the costs of the things that you need it to such as Dental Implants or Cosmetic Dentistry.

To fully understand the definition of Dental Insurance, we must take a broader look at insurance plans in general terms. Merriam-Webster defines insurance as, “coverage by contract whereby one party undertakes to indemnify or guarantee another against loss by a specified contingency or peril.”

In other words, when you purchase insurance you are simply paying for a form of protection when something happens to you. If we were to apply this definition to dentistry, insurance would cover a portion of the cost to repair damage to your mouth or prevent damage to your teeth.

Not all insurance plans are created equal and while some plans will cover the costs associated with regular cleanings, fillings and other treatments to maintain good oral health, most insurance plans will not cover Cosmetic Dentistry or Dental Implants.
