Medicare and Taking Advantage of Your Dental Coverage

Medicare and Taking Advantage of Your Dental Coverage

Keeping up with your dental hygiene doesn’t just mean brushing your teeth a couple of times per day. While flossing and daily brushing are integral to the health of your teeth and gums, seeing a dentist on a regular basis should not be overlooked.

Prevention is Key

Making sure to brush at least two times per day and floss regularly is an essential part of keeping your mouth healthy, while simultaneously helping to prevent cavities, tooth decay or gum disease. Left unattended, dental problems can lead to more serious issues like diabetes or heart disease. Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing every day, you may not know if there are any underlying issues forming until you take a trip to the dentist.

The easiest way to avoid costly or potentially painful dental problems is to see your dentist on a regular basis. While at your visit, your dentist will clean and examine your teeth and gums. During your cleaning, your dentist will remove the buildup of plaque or tartar that your daily brushing may not remove. During your exam, your dentist will assess potential concerns and make recommendations that keep your teeth and mouth happy and healthy.

Medicare and Dental

If you are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you likely have dental coverage included. Depending on your plan, you may be surprised at what dental benefits are available to you.

  • Dental exams
  • Routine cleanings
  • X-Rays
  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Extractions
  • Dentures or dental implants

On top of routine exams and cleanings, seeing your dentist at least twice per year can help you avoid costly procedures. Your Medicare plan can help subsidize the cost of expensive dental benefits, such as dental implants or oral surgery. Many plans don’t cover things like implants or extractions. Staying ahead of those issues will spare you money in out-of-pocket costs. You can find a complete list of items covered by your dental plan on your Summary of Benefits provided to you when you enrolled in your plan.

If you have questions about your dental benefits, your Medicare Advantage plan, or what is included in your coverage, call us today at 1-800-991-4407 / TTY 711 (Mon - Thurs 8am - 11pm EST and Friday 8am - 9pm EST).
