Some plans do. In fact, more and more dental insurance plans are offering some sort of coverage, even it it's just a percentage. For those plans that do offer implant coverage, be sure to check the fine print. If the implant is replacing a congenital missing tooth, the insurance company may not cover it because it's considered a birth defect. Be sure to do your homework.
