Does your job offer Principal Dental PPO insurance coverage? Sunnyvale Dentist Dr. Gupta is a part of the Principal Dental PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) network. Principal Dental PPO insurance company also offers individual dental insurance plans that cover regular cleanings, exams, and other necessary dental procedures.
Regular dental care is important because poor dental health can negatively impact heart and total body health. Many medical conditions have been linked to conditions within the mouth. Sunnyvale Dentist Dr. Gupta will help you maintain or restore your dental health through dental hygiene education, professional cleanings, and restorative dentistry.
Many people purchase dental insurance for themselves and their families but only use it for dental emergencies. These emergency situations may be very stressful and painful. They can also be costly. It is much better to prevent dental emergencies by discovering potential problems at their onset.
Preventative dentistry has that goal in mind. Many Principal Dental PPO insurance plans cover preventative dentistry at 100% when done at an in-network office like Sunnyvale Dental Care. The percentage of coverage may be lower when done by a dentist who has not agreed to follow the Principal Dental PPO reduced fees.
If problems are discovered during preventative appointments they can be easily remedied. Basic and major dentistry restores missing tooth structures that have been lost due to fracture, disease, decay, or trauma. Fillings can be placed on teeth that have decay that has not yet reached the nerve of a tooth. If the decay is deep, a root canal may be needed to save the tooth. Root canal treated teeth and teeth with large existing fillings can be strengthened by crowns, inlays, and veneers. Basic dentistry may be covered at 60% to 80%, while major dentistry may have 30% to 50% coverage.
The first step is to contact Sunnyvale Dental Care with your insurance information. They will then contact Principal Dental PPO insurance for you to determine your benefit and coverage levels. Dr. Gupta will create a treatment plan for you based on findings from a compressive examination. His insurance coordinator will then educate you on your dental coverage and how it will offset your treatment expense.
