Cigna Dental Dentist – Fairfax, VA
Ensuring You Receive High Quality Dental Care
Cigna Dental insurance is a useful tool that can help reduce the out-of-pocket cost of preventive care and procedures for you and your family. You will be happy to learn that your team at Fairfax Dental Esthetics is in your Cigna network, which allows you to receive the maximum benefit from your plan.
Dentistry focuses on preventive care because it helps patients avoid more significant problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities. You will receive the most insurance coverage for your preventive appointments, or routine cleanings and checkups; in fact, they are often covered at 100% so there is no out-of-pocket cost to you when you work with a dentist in your network.
As an example, if Dr. Berrada or Dr. Glikman detect decay in your tooth during a routine examination, it is likely they can treat it with a simple dental filling when you are proactive about treatment. If tooth decay is ignored or not diagnosed, it will progress and could reach the nerve of your tooth, which causes a lot of discomfort and requires root canal therapy to preserve your tooth. Being proactive and managing treatment early on saves you time, money, and stress in the long run.
