Shopping for Your Orthodontic Coverage
When looking for the right plan for you and your pocketbook, carefully compare your options. Not all dental plans are created equal—plan limitations, waiting periods, yearly costs, discounts, or copayments can vary greatly. And because most of these plans require the use of a network dentist, make sure there are dentists in your area that you can visit for treatment. When you find a plan that meets your needs, don't hesitate to ask your dentist or orthodontist if they would be willing to join the program.
Databases like DentalPlans – which represents over 40 discount plans – make it easy for you to compare yearly fees, discounts, and network dentists. The National Association of Dental Plans is another great marketplace where you can search for any program: group, individual, or discount.
Finding dental insurance that covers braces for adults may take some time. But with more discount programs and expanded dental networks popping up today, you can have straighter teeth and a gorgeous smile without breaking the bank.
