Patients often ask whether dental implants are covered by insurance? The answer is that it depends?
Many companies that provide dental insurance maintain that dental implants are a cosmetic dental procedure and not “necessary” and therefore not covered. However, there are a few insurance providers that do cover implants to some extent. It just depends on your insurance carrier.
Another question we get asked frequently is whether a patient who is planning on having implants placed can switch from an insurance provider who not does cover implants to one that does.
