Have you ever went into a dental appointment thinking that your insurance covers your cleanings at 100%, but then the office tells you that you are diagnosed with periodontal gum disease and you have to pay for your cleanings?
Most people do not realize that insurance only covers a certain amount for periodontal cleanings because they are completely different than a regular cleaning.
A majority of our patients in Hendersonville that are diagnosed with periodontal gum disease do not know that it does not fall under the preventative category where cleanings are covered at 100%. Instead, the perio scaling (deep cleaning) is in its own category which is almost always covered at a different percentage than preventative.
Before choosing your insurance, make sure you know what all it covers.
By doing this, you wont be surprised at your next dental appointment when presented with a treatment plan.
