Dental Insurance, What is a missing tooth clause?
Over the coarse of three years I have lost a few teeth. I did not have dental insurance and to be frank did not like going to the dentist. I am now paying the price for having such a bad attitude about dentist and oral hygiene. I want to start doing what is right and get my teeth fixed up however way necessary.
So I first started looking into getting dental insurance. Many of the plans I see have long term waiting period for the dental services I am sure to need. I may be willing to put up with the waiting periods since it was I who let things get so bad. However a friend told me to beware of missing teeth clause. She said many dental insurance plans have them so in the end I still will not have coverage to fix my missing teeth. Is that true? If so what is a missing tooth clause and would I fall into it?
