Dental Grants for Implants, General & Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Most types of general and cosmetic dental procedures are eligible for a Dental Grant, including the procedures listed below.
Basic dentistry such as cleanings, extractions, root canals and fillings are also eligible.
The participating dentist and your Program Consultant will help determine what parts of your treatment plan will be considered for a dental grant, and how much applies.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.
A Dental Crown (also called a Dental Bridge) is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
A dental extraction is the removal of teeth from the dental socket. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become un-restorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma.
Invisalign® (Clear Aligners) is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that both orthodontists and dentists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces.
Clear Aligners have grown in popularity as a way to straighten moderately crooked teeth.
Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Root canal treatment is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.
People who need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth can now receive All-on-Four® implants.
An oral surgeon will place 4 implants and then attach a full arch of teeth.
Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for closing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures.
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mal-positioned teeth and jaws, and misaligned bite patterns. It can also focus on modifying facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics.
