One of the biggest misconceptions about dental insurance is that it works just like health insurance, in that, it’s mostly there to help people afford care for sudden, serious problems.
In reality, most dental insurance plans are focused on making basic preventive services more affordable. Why?

Expanding on what we touched on above, most dental insurance plans’ benefits break down like this:
With this in mind, the best way for most people to maximize their plan is to simply attend their two recommended checkups and cleanings each year. These appointments will be mostly or completely covered by your insurance, plus they’ll go a long way in stopping small problems from turning into bigger ones later!
