Will Medicare Pay For Dental?
Updated: Oct 22, 2021
A common question from potential clients is “will Medicare pay for dental?” While there are plans available that offer dental coverage such as implants, Medicare Part A and Part B doesn't cover certain benefits, such as dental. If you only have Original Medicare (Part A and Part B), you’ll need to pay for these dental costs out-of-pocket.
For better dental coverage you will need a Medicare Advantage Plan. These policies enhance Original Medicare coverage (Part A and B) and are sold by private companies. Medicare Advantage Plans help pay some of the remaining health care costs such as dental services.
As Seniors, it’s important for us to pay attention to our oral hygiene. It is highly underrated but goes much further than just fresh breath. Good oral hygiene is the number one way to prevent gum disease, a condition afflicting nearly half of American adults according to a study by the American Academy of Periodontology.
Although these numbers are serious, there are an increasing number of studies linking the inflammation of gum disease with other conditions such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease and cancer.
