Cigna Dentist in Fort Worth
Getting the quality health care you need shouldn’t be a challenge! At Distinguished Dental, our Cigna dentist and team want to make your experience at our office as pleasant and stress-free as possible, and this includes the cost and financing of your treatment. We work with a number of dental insurance companies, and offer convenient payment options so that the cost of treatment will never deter our patients from getting the quality dental care they deserve.
The Basics of Insurance Coverage
Most dental insurance plans run on a calendar year (January through December), have a deductible to be met during the year, and have a maximum amount they will pay yearly for coverage. All these factors are unique to each dental plan, so it’s important to understand how your specific plan works.
Restorative treatments such as dental fillings, crowns, or root canal therapy for example, are typically paid at a percentage after the deductible is met. So when you have these types of procedures done your insurance doesn’t cover the total balance, you’ll have a portion to pay as well.
If you have dental benefits, we understand that all this information can often be difficult to decipher and navigate. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is well trained on how insurance works and they’re always on hand to answer your questions and help you understand your own benefits and what’s covered on your particular plan.
We’ll always discuss your treatment needs and cost before moving forward and starting a procedure, so you’re clear about any portion that you’ll be responsible for and there are no surprises.
Your dentist in Fort Worth is proud to be in network with Cigna PPO dental insurance, and this means there are added benefits available to Cigna patients such as:
- A higher percentage of coverage for restorative treatments
- Preventative care such as cleanings and examinations covered at 100%
When your cleanings, examinations, and x-rays are covered at 100%, which means there’s no out-of-pocket cost for you, there’s no reason to skip seeing your dentist every six months for routine visits, which will ensure that you maintain optimum oral health.
The Benefits of Routine Dental Care
Thanks to emerging information, we now understand how closely connected your oral health is with your overall health and well being. We know that the bacteria that causes periodontal (gum) disease also contributes to other health concerns such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and vice versa.
There has never been a better time for patients to take charge of their oral health, and your six-month cleaning and check-ups can help prevent many of these issues like gum disease and tooth decay from becoming a problem in the first place.
