Pet Insurance: Dental Plans For A Healthy Smile

With a pet insurance dental plan, your pet can have a healthy smile. Some pets, especially some breeds prone to hereditary disease and/or accidents, may suffer dental problems – that could be prevented or attended to with the proper dental health insurance plan.

What is A Pet Insurance Dental Plan?

Pet dental insurance is a specific type of coverage that is usually not in your basic pet veterinary insurance plan. It may be offered as a bonus or as an add-on option – at additional expense. The dental plan specifically covers accidents and illness affecting pets’ teeth.

Why is Dental Health Insurance for Your Pet Important?

According to some estimates, 10 percent of pets have a dental accident during their first three years of life. In addition, it is estimated that between 70 and 80 percent of pets will incur some type of dental problems over the course of their lifetimes. Dental repair and restorative procedures are expensive. Dental problems that go uncorrected can lead to irreversible internal organ damage.

Routine and preventive care for our pets includes ensuring their teeth and gums are healthy. Pet insurance with dental coverage will help ensure our pets have a happy, healthy smile.
