X-rays And Tooth Extraction Using Insurance?
Hello r nI want to ask, is it possible to use bpjs for dental x-rays and tooth extraction for the purposes of using dental braces? Please for the information and thank you in advance. R nWassalamualaikum Wr. Wb
There are many types of braces or braces, ranging from permanent braces, detachable braces, functional braces, or other types such as headgear or retainer, each of which has its own functions and advantages.
Braces themselves are used to improve the appearance of teeth, aesthetics and also improve oral function, improve the distance between teeth, crowded teeth and others. Because the goal is mostly due to aesthetics, BPJS will not cover this condition. It is different if there is an impact that requires extraction such as wisdom teeth, if necessary the dentist will provide a referral where the examination site can be covered by the BPJs and later if there are indications of extraction it will also be covered by the BPJs but each health facility certainly has its own policies about this thing.
