Navigating Questions Of Treatment Coverage

If you think that something might be wrong with your oral health, you should feel comfortable reaching out to schedule treatment. Even if you are confident that your smile is in good condition, you should be prepared to set up an appointment for routine support. With that said, our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office understands that what your coverage really includes can be confusing. While it important that patients know what kind of support they have so that they can schedule the right care, we are prepared to help if you have questions. We can also help those who do not have conventional coverage and would like to know what support is available.

We Provide A Range Of Important Oral Health Services For Our Patients

Whether you need to address an active oral health problem or need to confirm that your smile is in good condition, our practice is here to help. Routine services should be a fixture in your larger efforts to prevent dental problems. During routine exams and cleanings at our office, we help patients understand what issues they need to worry about with regards to problems like cavities, but we also discuss any other signs of trouble that might require our support. We are also here to help if you start to experience a problem with your oral health and feel that you need to see someone about treatment. We can help you take advantage of the current coverage that you have, or we can talk to you about the right funding approach if you are not covered for a procedure that you require.

Understanding What Your Coverage Truly Provides

When you know what kind of support your insurance package provides, you can have an easier time advocating for yourself and seeking the appropriate treatment for a possible dental problem. With that said, we understand that it can sometimes be confusing to know what support you have, and how much coverage is going to be granted. We can work with those who are insured and those who are not to make sure treatments are available. Be careful not to put off an appointment if you think something is wrong, as this can lead to a delay in care that leads to complications!

Take Advantage Of Your Access To Preventive Treatment

Make sure you make use of your access to preventive care. At a typical appointment, you can undergo a teeth cleaning and a full review of your smile. In some cases, we may actually recommend additional or different services. For example, people who show signs of gingivitis can require a periodontal cleaning instead of a routine dental cleaning. The difference between the two approaches is that your periodontal cleaning will remove bacteria that are already building up under your gum line, which leads to gingivitis issues.
