Buyer’s Guide for Dental Insurance and Discount Dental Plans

Browse Common Concerns:

Periodontal Insurance

Periodontal insurance refers to dental plans that include benefits for periodontal care. This care ranges from routine treatment of gums to assisting those diagnosed with gum disease. Infection of the gums is especially common in older adults and periodontal insurance helps seniors in managing the problem that can lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes if left untreated. 

Do most dental plans offer periodontal insurance as a standard benefit?

Yes, almost all of Dental Insurance Store's dental plans include generous periodontal care as a standard feature. Please get your Free Quote and browse the Plan Details of plans that interest you to see what kind of periodontal coverage they provide. You may also find other useful information in this Buyer's Guide related to your specific situation. 

Is periodontal health important?

Anyone from children to seniors can suffer from gum disease, and for those that do have it ongoing dental care is necessary to prevent even more serious problems. In fact, if gingivitis (early periodontal infection) is caught soon enough, periodontis may be avoided altogether. Many insurance plans cover the cost of extra cleanings that can help prevent gingivitis from progressing.

Can I still get coverage with a preexisting condition?

Of course! At Dental Insurance Store we are committed to getting you care. That’s why we’ve teamed up with carriers across the country that do not deny coverage to patients with preexisting dental issues.

"They're practicing all of the parts of the behavior except lighting up that they would need to use a cigarette." - Dr. James Sargent, Dartmouth University Geisel School of Medicine
