What is Dental Coverage?

Dental coverage is an important pet insurance coverage category covering costs such as tooth extraction, illness-related cleanings, periodontal disease, cysts, enamel, and unerupted teeth issues.

How Dental Coverage Works

Accident and illness pet insurance plans can cover illness-related cleanings. While routine teeth cleanings, which many veterinarians recommend are performed yearly to protect your pet’s oral health, can be reimbursed under pet wellness plan add-ons. Without pet dental insurance, a simple dental procedure could cost between $300 to $700 out-of-pocket.

Another aspect to consider about dental coverage is that certain breeds are more susceptible to dental health issues and may benefit greatly from additional coverage in case they develop illness-related dental conditions. Not all pet insurance plans offer dental coverage, so take a close look at any plans you’re considering so that you can choose the best plan for your pet.


Key Takeaways

  • Unexpected dental accidents or illnesses are often covered under pet insurance.
  • Routine dental cleanings are not offered under accident and illness pet insurance plans, but a wellness add-on can significantly lower regular dental care costs.
