Understanding How Orthodontic Insurance Works

Dental insurance plans tend to cover orthodontics a little differently compared to other procedures. While most policies tend to pay for a percentage of checkups, cleanings, crowns, and other general procedures, when it comes to orthodontics, there is usually a lifetime benefit per person on a plan. This means there is a fixed amount of money that can be put toward orthodontics, and once it’s gone, it doesn’t come back.

What Your Orthodontic Insurance Plan Covers

Every dental insurance plan is required by law to offer coverage for metal braces for patients aged 18 and under who need them to resolve a medical issue. The lifetime benefit tends to be about $1,000-$1,500, or half the standard cost of braces. Depending on your plan, this benefit may also be applied to treatment for an adult, including both braces and clear aligners. This isn’t consistent across all providers, however, so we recommend looking over your plan closely before committing to any treatment.
