Individual Dental Insurance - Dental Insurance For Individuals

Feb 1, 2008
Dental Insurance Providing Solutions To All

Traditional individual dental insurance is often believed to be the best way to pay for dental expenses. And while individual dental insurance is a good option when sponsored by your employer, it is often not very cost effective when paying for it yourself. Most individual dental insurance plans require you to meet waiting periods and deductibles before having major and sometimes even minor restorative work done. The health of your teeth shouldn't have to suffer just because of the high price of dental visits. You can get an individual dental insurance or savings plan that is right for you and your family. It is possible to save money and take good care of your teeth.

Variety Of Insurance Plans To Choose From

There are a variety of dental insurance plans available in the market. A search on the internet will give hundreds of results. It is easy to get confused with so many options. However there are basic principles of insurance which when applied can reduce the overall costs to the individual. Some of them are explained below. Individual dental plans fall into two categories- Preferred Provider Plans (PPO) plans and Indemnity Plans. The major difference between these plans lies in the individual's freedom of choosing a dentist for the treatment. Compared to indemnity plans, PPO provides coverage at a lower rate, but then the individual's freedom of choosing a dentist becomes restricted to the ones listed in the plan's network.

Get Credit As Well As Discounts With Dental Insurance

A number of companies offer dental discount plans. For a monthly or annual fee, you get access to a network of dentists who will work for discounted rates. There are no guarantees that your dentist will provide services for the discounted rate for the entire term of your plan membership. Before joining a dental discount plan, check with your dentist to make sure he or she is a member. In fact, you may want to talk with your dentist about other financing arrangements. Many dentists are willing to work with your financial constraints even if you do not sign up for a discount plan - some offer their own financing arrangements and/or are willing to help you find a way to pay for your treatment.

Bone expansion is when special bone expanding tools are used to literally prise apart the bone in the jaw in the area that dental implant bone is required. It may then be filled with bone to provide a thicker, stronger bone, or the implant may be inserted straight away.

Where grafts, growth or expansion may not be suitable for dental implant bone preparation, the option is to install plates alongside the existing bone.

Regardless of the procedure of preparing dental implant bone, it will likely be a long and expensive process. As with any kind of surgery, you should make sure that dental implant bone surgery is carried out by a fully qualified practitioner.
