At Pacific Northwest Periodontics and Implant Dentistry we work hard to maximize our patient's dental insurance benefits while limiting out-of-pocket expenses.
It is important to understand, however, that dental insurance coverage for implant treatment depends on your individual policy. Generally, dental insurance covers basic routine preventive maintenance, basic care, and emergencies with an annual maximum allowable benefit of $1,000-$1,500.
Most insurance plans do not include dental implant coverage; however, they will often pay the same benefit they would cover for the lowest cost alternative treatment option (partials and dentures) and some of the diagnostic records, if a specific request is made for alternative benefits.
We can assist you in reviewing your both your dental insurance and medical insurance plans to ascertain whether or not you have any coverage. Medical coverage is uncommon. Medicare does not cover implant treatment.
All in all, it is best to assume that there is no medical insurance coverage available.
