Quality Dental Care For ModeRn-Day Heroes With DVA
Dental Treatments Covered By DVA
PREVENTIVE DENTAL SERVICES
In an effort to improve the oral health of our veterans, the DVA offers coverage of dental treatments aimed at keeping their teeth and mouth healthy. Standard dental services covered by the DVA are regular check-ups and cleanings, dentures, and treatments for cavities.
TOOTH REPLACEMENT OPTIONS
For patients suffering from missing teeth, a common tooth replacement option is a set of dentures. You are entitled to having your dentures re-lined every two years. DVA will cover denture replacement every 6 years, unless your dentures have been re-lined in the past year or if a replacement is recommended sooner.
DENTAL IMPLANT COVERAGE
DVA Cardholders are eligible to receive different dental implants depending on their needs. With teeth lost within the past three years, you can receive two single tooth implants every two years. You also have the option to get dental implants for the upper or lower jaw for partial upper jaw dentures or a full lower jaw denture.
Although bruxism is classified as a mental health condition by the DVA, it has significant dental ramifications. Consequences of bruxism can include cracked, broken or worn teeth due to long-term grinding of the teeth. Some restrictions can apply to the coverage of bruxism dental treatments depending on the type of Veteran Healthcard presented.
