Dental Insurance for Kids

Beginning Care

According to the American Dental Association, pediatric dental care should begin after your child’s first tooth appears and before your child’s first birthday. Kids usually have their full set of baby teeth in place by 2 ½ to 3 years old.

Avoiding Decay

Though teeth will start to fall out between ages 6 and 7, they still need routine pediatric dental care. Tooth decay in baby teeth can cause serious health concerns if left untreated.

Encouraging Cleaning

A dental cleaning cost can vary from a routine cleaning to a complete cleaning. Parents can help protect their children’s smiles by encouraging good cleaning habits and helping kids brush and floss; which can also help save them a trip to the dentist and teeth cleaning cost. Somewhere around ages 6-8, most children become capable of doing it themselves with no follow up or assistance.

Dental Insurance that Covers Orthodontics

For complete dental health, your children may need braces to create a healthy bite by moving teeth that are crooked, spaced badly, or don’t meet correctly. This can be a costly investment. Depending upon where you live and how much work is needed, getting braces typically costs from $3,000 to $7,500.*

Orthodontic care is considered medically necessary if your child experiences at least one of these issues:

  1. Spacing between adjacent teeth interferes with biting
  2. Overbite causes the lower front teeth to impinge on the roof of mouth when biting
  3. The jaw position or teeth impairs the ability to bite or chew
Empire offers a variety of dental plans for kids that can significantly reduce the price you pay out of pocket for children's medically necessary orthodontic work.
