MetLife Dental PPO Missing Tooth Clause Temple TX Dental

MetLife Dental is known for having one of the most extensive networks of licensed dentists and specialists nationwide. Many employers opt for MetLife Dental PPO (Missing Tooth Clause) plans for their employees, and individual policies can also be purchased directly from the insurance company.

With various types of plans available, it can be challenging to understand the specific coverage rules associated with each plan, especially for those unfamiliar with working with insurance companies. At Temple Dentist, Dr. Hiep Pham and his team have extensive experience collaborating with insurance companies, including MetLife Dental PPO. (Missing Tooth Clause)

Understanding the Dental PPO Missing Tooth Clause

When you schedule an appointment at Temple Dentist, their team will contact MetLife Dental PPO insurance on your behalf to obtain the coverage details specific to your plan. It's important to note that dental insurance companies often have limitations on how frequently their members can utilize their coverage. This is known as frequency limitation. For instance, some companies allow members to receive cavity-detecting bitewing X-rays every six months for their cleanings and periodic exams. In contrast, others may only cover these X-rays once per year.

Different dental conditions often have multiple treatment options available. Some insurance companies may decline coverage for specific treatments but are willing to cover less expensive alternatives. For example, dental implants were previously excluded from most insurance policies in favor of cheaper options like dental bridges and partial dentures. However, as dental implants have gained popularity and their benefits have become well-known, more insurance plans now include them as a covered benefit.


Another important consideration is the "missing tooth clause," established by some insurance companies but not all. This clause excludes coverage for dental treatments to replace teeth extracted before the dental insurance policy became effective. This can harm many individuals, resulting in higher patient copays. When selecting an insurance policy, choosing one that does not have a missing tooth clause is advisable.

Dr. Hiep Pham of Temple Dentist welcomes you to the practice and is dedicated to helping you maintain your dental health while maximizing the benefits of your dental insurance plan.
