    1. This is an average range of values and limitations of major dental PPO insurance plans. Each individual insurance plan may have some of the illustrated parameters, depending on the terms of negotiated contract.
    2. Most insurances have a waiting period after the patient's enrollment in the plan, before paying for dental procedures. It can vary from 6 to 12 months for procedures under "basic" classifications, and from 12 to 24 months under "major" ones (crown, etc.).
    3. Most insurances do not pay for certain dental problems, which occurred prior to the patient's enrollment in a plan. Example: The "missing tooth" clause. If the tooth was lost (extracted) prior to the time of enrollment, the dental bridge is not covered.
    4. Most insurance plans do not cover certain procedures, such as dental implants, porcelain inlays and onlays, diagnostic CT scans, etc.
    5. Most insurance plans "downgrade" payments for certain procedures and reimburse at much lower rate under the "alternative benefits". Example: For a porcelain, tooth-color inlay insurance reimburses only as for an amalgam (silver) filling. Example: If the patient needs a dental bridge, but has a missing tooth on the other side of the arch, the insurance pays as for a partial denture.
    6. Some insurance plans impose patient's age limitations on certain procedures and restorations on permanent teeth. Example: To be eligible for payment for a dental onlay or a crown on a decayed tooth, the patient must be at least 13 years old. Example: Some insurances may exclude payment for dental bridges for patients with a missing tooth who are under age 16.
    7. Most insurance plans have replacement clause exclusions on restorations and dental appliances. Example: Replacement of dental crowns, bridges and dentures is covered once every 5-10 years, with the trend moving towards 10 years.
