I think I am a candidate for dental implants. Is there dental insurance that will help with the cost?
– Gary from Pennsylvania
Dental insurance, if you already have it, will usually help pay for dental implants, but not very much. What most dental insurance plans will do is pay for the least expensive option for replacing missing teeth, which usually ends up being something removable – either a removable full denture or a removable partial denture. These are the most uncomfortable dental restorations.
Another point I’d like to make is that it appears that you’re looking to buy some insurance on your own to help pay for implants. If that is the case, think through what you want. It sounds like you’re thinking of trying to take advantage of the insurance company. You want to pay them a certain amount of money and then get them to pay you more money back in benefits than you paid them in premiums. Good luck trying to talk a for-profit dental insurance company into that business deal.
