Most of our insurances are to cover unfortunate and more precisely uncertain events. But dental treatments have become more of necessities now a days rather than an unfortunate event. Our oral habits and hygiene have taken a strong set back due to our eating habits and our foods containing more of sugars and artificial stains.
Treatments Covered by Dental Insurance in Canada:
- Oral Cleaning
- Tooth Extractions
- Gum Disease Treatment
- Root Canals
- Bridges and Bonding
- Implants, etc.
How Much Do They Cover?
As long as we consider preventive treatments such as cleaning, scans and x-rays, they are 100% covered by dental insurance but are limited to a certain number of visits, annually and at or under a certain amount of dollars, depending on your plan. On the other hand more severe procedures like root canals or crowns are covered onto up to a percentage (70-80%) of the cost of the treatment, above which the holder has to pay on his own.
What happens if you don’t take your Oral Health seriously?
Since dental treatments which are necessary for good maintenance such as cleaning, and oral examinations are fully covered, you tend to visit the dentist more often and maintain your smile consistently. Visiting a dentist will eventually cost you less than not visiting one at all. Oral health reflects our overall health in many ways. And a bad oral health can only give birth to chronic illnesses such as diabetes or respiratory diseases.
