Children’s Medicaid: How Does It Work?
If you enroll in Medicaid, this federal and state-based program provides individuals throughout the United States with access to essential dental care. For people who are uninsured, Medicaid is a great way to get the care you need without emptying your pockets in order to pay for it.
Although Medicaid may be limited for adults when it comes to dental care, it is extremely beneficial for children, as it provides coverage for an array of dental services.
Dental Services Covered Under Children’s Medicaid
According to Medicare.gov, this unique program offers dental services for children who are enrolled. Some of these services include:
- General checkups and cleanings (two each year)
- Dental x-rays
- Fluoride treatment/Silver diamine fluoride
- Dental sealants
- Dental fillings
- Pulp therapy
- Emergency dentistry
It is possible for your child to also receive coverage for orthodontics, tooth replacement, oral surgery, and periodontics.
Medicaid Dental Coverage for Adults
The Center for Health Care Strategies details the level of Medicaid coverage for adults ages 21 and older in each state. In Wyoming, coverage benefits include limited preventive and emergency services. Restorative care is not included. Patients with Medicaid can expect to receive:
- Two preventive exams and cleanings each year
- Two emergency visits each year
- Coverage for extractions
- Coverage for a repair or reline of existing full or partial dentures
Our team will work hard to find ways to help you save the most money, no matter the reason for your visit.
Why Prevention Matters
Preventive care is your pathway toward better oral health. With the help of Medicaid, you and your family can be proactive participants in ridding your smiles of decay and disease that often lead to serious, extensive, and costly restorative care. By choosing to see Dr. Erin Prach for treatment, you are not only putting your smile in the hands of a trusted professional, but you’re also reaping the benefits of seeing a dentist who believes in providing affordable care to patients of all ages.
