Dental Care

Since traditional Medicare does not cover dental services, the cost of preventative treatments and routine procedures are an out-of-pocket cost for most seniors. Some people choose to purchase Medigap plans or other insurance that offers dental coverage to reduce the cost of expensive procedures and dentures.
