Dental insurance is a health care policy that provides reimbursement against dental care and treatment expenditures. It involves the payment of monthly premiums and provides partial or complete coverage against dental procedures. It commonly covers the cost of fillings, root canals, preventive care and oral surgeries, such as tooth extractions. Direct reimbursement and indemnity plans are some of the common types of dental insurance coverage offered by Dental health maintenance organizations (DHMO), exclusive provider organizations (EPO), preferred provider organizations (PPO). Dental insurance aids in providing access to premium healthcare services, minimizing overall costs, maintaining good oral health and covering critical illnesses and surgeries.
The increasing prevalence of various oral disorders, such as gingivitis, tooth decay, oral cancer and broken teeth, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. With the changing dietary patterns and increasing consumption of sugary compounds, there is a rising incidence of gum disease and cavities. This has led to the widespread adoption of dental insurance policies to cover treatment expenditures and obtain premium-quality care. Moreover, various product innovations, such as the development of customized insurance plans that cover regular check-ups of the patients and offer affordable, more accessible and higher quality care, are providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, the increasing utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) to enable hyper-accurate, liability-free diagnostics and develop comprehensive insurance policies are positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing demand for regular dental check-ups and significant growth in the healthcare industry, along with the implementation of various government initiatives to formalize dentalcare services, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
