So, what is a dental implant?
A dental implant consists of a metal screw (often titanium), that is inserted into the gum and jaw bone, then topped with a crown or bridge. Implants are often used when the root of a tooth fails or is killed due to infection or injury.
If cared for properly, implants can last as long as natural teeth. They look and feel the same, allowing you to eat, drink and smile with confidence.
Why should I add Denplan Implant Upgrade Cover to my current dental payment plan?
Your current payment plan may include routine dental care, such as your regular check-ups and possibly other treatments, such as fillings and crowns. If you have a dental injury and lose a tooth as the result of this, your dentist may not be able to restore your teeth using the treatments covered by your current plan.
However, with Denplan Implant Upgrade, you can rest assured that if you do lose a tooth due to a dental injury*, you will have cover in place should your dentist feel an implant is clinically necessary.
Denplan Implant Upgrade Cover does not provide for;
- Implant placement where the dental injury occurred prior to, or within 28 days of, the cover start date
- Placement of an implant into a pre-existing gap or where the dentist determines it is not clinically appropriate
- Replacement following the failure of an implant to integrate
- Implant treatment which was prescribed, planned or was taking place at the commencement date of the Denplan Implant Upgrade Cover
