Does Medicare Cover Dental Treatment?

Does original Medicare include dental coverage? Will Medicare pay for dentures? What kind of dental plans are available for folks over age 65? Are dentist discount plans good to have? How do they differ from dental insurance? Where do I find a good dental plan if I am on Medicare?

Medicare doesn’t cover most dental care, dental procedures, or supplies, like cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, dentures, dental plates, or other dental devices. Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) will pay for certain dental services that you get when you’re in a hospital.

Some employer plans allow retirees to continue their dental insurance plan. If you like your plan and can keep it into retirement, consider that option.
