When we think of our pet’s health, we may not often think about their dental health as a priority. However, many serious issues pets can experience throughout their life can stem from dental problems.
Most dental issues pets experience can often go unnoticed for a long period of time. Many times, it is not until the dental issues have progressed significantly that owners recognize the issue and seek treatment. By then, the severity may have progressed to where it requires serious treatment to be able to fix. In the most severe cases, these dental issues can progress to a point where they begin to cause irreversible damage to other parts of their body.
Keeping up with your pet’s dental health requires consistent vet visits, including wellness checks and teeth cleanings to make sure their mouth is healthy. However, regular visits can be expensive, and many owners may not be able to afford dental procedures along with other illness and injury coverage.
Pet dental insurance makes it easier for owners to afford dental treatments to be able to prioritize their pet’s dental health. Taking advantage of these plans give you the ability to care for your pet fully, helping them live a longer and healthier life.

Depending on whether you have an illness-only, injury-only, or combination plan, you will also be covered for dental issues that come as a result of these unexpected circumstances.
Most pet dental insurance plans do not cover routine or preventive care. This includes teeth cleanings or cosmetic procedures. Additionally, they often do not cover any pre-existing conditions your pet may have. To get coverage for routine or preventive dental care, you will need to take advantage of a wellness plan, which is often offered in addition to your pet insurance coverage.
Insurance premiums are determined based on a number of factors specific to your pet as well as the dental coverage you are getting under your plan. These circumstances include:
Additionally, the specifics of your plan will influence your monthly premium, including the reimbursement percentage included, your yearly deductible amount, and the coverage cap of your overall plan.
You have a lot to consider when deciding on the best dental insurance plan for your pet. Here are some important things to keep in mind as you are searching for the right plan:
