Dental Insurance that Covers Implants

Dental insurance plans offer a variety of different coverage types. Full coverage dental insurance helps cover routine visits, the basics and more invasive treatments. Some of the most sought-out treatments are implants and dentures.

The term “full coverage dental insurance” refers to the plan’s ability to help with various dental treatments and procedures. Even so, it does not mean that all treatments and procedures are fully covered every time. Aflac’s full coverage dental insurance doesn’t cover implants, but we can help you reach your oral health goals through our coverage options.

Unfortunately, nearly 23% of adults and 9% of children do not have dental insurance coverage.1 Beyond that, some dental-related emergencies may be prevented with proactive care. Having a dental plan in place can help protect your teeth and wallet from unforeseen costs that can arise without regular dental hygiene maintenance. Full coverage dental insurance may be the right choice for you if you are prone to dental issues.

It is important to understand that full coverage dental insurance does not guarantee you’ll be covered for everything. However, it will provide additional financial support for preventative services and major procedures that can allow you to save money in the long run.
