What is a Dental Health Insurance?

To simply put it, a dental health insurance is a health insurance that also covers for your necessary dental treatment expenses. Typically, many standard health insurance plans do not offer insurance for dental treatments and care. However, at Digit we cover the same under our OPD benefit which is included as part of our Digit Health Care Plus plan.

Benefits of having a Health Insurance that covers dental treatments

Keeps your dental expenses at bay

Dental treatments can be expensive and this is mainly because of the continuous innovation in the field, the expensive setup and the amount of laboratory work involved. Having health insurance with dental coverage ensures your dental treatment expenses are at bay, and you save more whilst still taking care of your oral health! 

Helps you maintain your dental health, which is just as important!

People often undermine dental health and that can lead to more serious oral health issues in the future. In fact, whilst health experts recommend visiting a dentist at least once a year, in India it was found that 67% of the population didn’t unless their oral condition reached a point where going to the dentist was inevitable. A dental health insurance will ensure you don’t leave dental issues for the last minute, and get the required treatment at the right time, without having to worry about your finances! 

Coverage beyond the standard

Usually, most standard health insurance plans do not cover for dental treatments. However, the biggest benefit of this health insurance with OPD cover, including dental treatments is that you get coverage beyond the standard. You get all the benefits of a standard health insurance plus the benefit to cover for OPD expenses, including dental treatments! 

Additional benefits with a dental health insurance

As mentioned above, in this case, an insurance for dental treatment doesn’t only give you the benefit of coverage for your necessary dental treatments but, also gives you other benefits such as coverage for daycare procedures, hospitalization for all other illnesses including the COVID-19, complimentary health checkups and, no room rent capping among other benefits.

Get tax savings like you do with all health insurance plans!

The best part about any health insurance is that apart from receiving financial benefits related to your health, you also get other financial benefits such as annual tax savings based on the health insurance premium you pay, up to Rs 25,000! 

How to ensure healthy Dental hygiene and wellbeing?

  • You’ve probably heard this since childhood but it still rings true and eerily, people still need to be reminded of it! The key to good oral hygiene is literally just brushing twice a day and you could floss too when required to ensure there is no dental plaque between your teeth.
  • One of the most common recommendations by health experts is that you should visit your dentist at least once a year if not twice, even if you feel like you have no dental problems. Many times, you may never know what’s going on inside until it’s too late! And you know what they say, tooth aches are one of the worst aches there is. Going for regular dental checkups ensures your oral health is in check! 
  • Drink lots of water. Yes, the age-old rule is valid not only for overall health but, good dental health too! 
  • If you have diabetes, work on maintaining your levels not only for your overall health but it also affects your oral health. This will ensure you avoid any gum diseases and if you do tend to have a gum disease, then get the same treated as soon as possible!
  • Avoid using tobacco products, including smoking. They’re not only bad for your lungs, but terribly bad for your oral health too!
