That being said, having dental insurance is a tool that can make getting the dental care you want and deserve easier to get. But, it is essential to understand your dental benefits. Most benefits do not cover all dental treatment. When deciding on your treatment, consider your dental and overall health, not just your dental benefits.
Look into your dental plan make sure you become familiar with your benefits. Remember, it is your dental insurance, and the dental office acting on your behalf only receives a portion of the plan's covered benefits. Many plans have contractual exclusions of treatment; this can include no payment for pre-existing conditions, payment frequency limitations, and down coding.
Most dental plans will have a deductible you will be expected to pay before any services are paid for. Additionally, you will be expected to pay a percentage each time you have treatment, and you have an annual maximum/dollar amount that can be used each year.
We are happy to interpret your dental coverage, but always remember, you and your dentist-not should determine your dental treatment by your level of insurance coverage.

Questions about Dental X-Rays
Some of the most common questions we get at have to do with dental x-rays:
Are they safe? Why do my kids or Is need them? And how often should I get them? These are great questions (and we love how much you prioritize your health). The answers can get complex quickly, so we’ll do our best to cover the basics here. Are Dental X-Rays Safe? Let’s start with the most critical question—safety. Both the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA) test dental x-rays to make sure they’re safe for patients of all ages. These governing bodies revise their guidelines when advances in science and technology provide new methods to reduce exposure. Thanks to faster film speeds, digital X-rays, and protective aprons and thyroid collars, the X-ray of today is far superior to those of even just a decade ago. This applies to children, too. Today’s X-rays are so safe that the amount of radiation a child is exposed to in an X-ray of the back molars is roughly equivalent to the amount of radiation they are exposed to in theenvironment dailyy.
X-rays, also called radiographs, help your dentist spot conditions, like cavities, tooth misalignment, and abscesses, that they can’t see through a visual examination. X-rays are essential for children because they are generally more susceptible to tooth decay than adults. The benefits of X-rays, which include diagnosing decay, pathology, or any abnormalities, far outweigh the risks of exposure to this minimal dose of radiation. How Often Should I Get Them? Your X-ray schedule depends on several factors, including your medical and dental history. Generally, patients without a history of cavities or dental disease are recommended to undergo one set of X-rays every two to three years. The best way to reduce the number of X-rays you need is to follow good oral hygiene at home.
