Child or adult? Differences in supplementary dental insurance

Supplementary outpatient insurance options cover the costs of orthodontics for children and young people up to age 20. After this, only private supplementary dental insurance options contribute to the costs of treatments by the dentist or dental hygienist.

If you wish to continue to get regular dental treatment or other services after age 20, it's worthwhile taking out extra insurance for your teeth. With supplementary dental insurance, you benefit from contributions to check-ups, dental hygiene or root canal treatments, even from a low premium – and this protects you against high dental costs.

Supplementary dental insurance: The key benefits

We cover the following services related to your teeth: Further details can be found in the benefits overview.

Dental hygiene

Professional teeth cleaning involves removing tartar and checking your gum health. Dental hygiene is never covered by statutory health insurance or supplementary outpatient insurance policies.


Is a dazzling white smile important to you? Nicotine, coffee and red wine can all discolor teeth. Bleaching lightens your teeth, giving you back your dazzling smile.

Statutory health insurance and supplementary outpatient insurance policies don't contribute to the costs of bleaching.

Dental check-ups

During a check-up, the dentist checks the health of your teeth, the condition of fillings and whether prostheses are still positioned correctly.

Check-ups are not covered by health insurance; you need private supplementary dental insurance.

Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontics is about checking whether your or your child have misalignments of the teeth or jaw and need dental braces.

Many supplementary insurance policies contribute to the costs of orthodontic treatment until age 20. Basic insurance contributes to the costs in the case of serious disorders of the masticatory system.

Questions about dental insurance options

  • Why do I need dental insurance?

    The costs of dental and orthodontic treatment can quickly mount up. They are not covered by statutory health insurance and are frequently no longer covered by supplementary insurance policies after the age of 20. However, supplementary dental insurance continues to contribute to costs every calendar year.

  • What treatments does statutory health insurance cover?

    Basic insurance only covers treatment of severe disorders of the masticatory system or of dental injuries due to accidents. For all other costs, such as routine dental visits or professional teeth cleaning, you need supplementary dental insurance.

  • What does supplementary insurance cover for a child?

    Many supplementary health insurance policies contribute towards the costs of orthodontic measures such as dental braces for children and young people up to age 20.

  • When should I take out dental insurance?

    Ideally, you should take out dental insurance for a child before they turn 5. Until then, taking out supplementary dental insurance does not require a medical certificate giving information on the condition of the child's teeth.

    Later on, you may require a dental certificate to take out dental insurance, depending on the policy. If there are already misalignments, missing teeth or prostheses at this point, your insurance application may be rejected. If you are already insured, however, your policy cannot be terminated.
