Your Dental Benefits
DENIS manages sustainable dental benefits on behalf of PG Group Medical Scheme.
Dental benefits are divided into Conservative Dentistry, Specialised Dentistry, and Hospitalisation/Anaesthetics.
Please refer to the PG Group dental benefit table below for a summary of the dental benefits offered by PG Group Medical Scheme.
Conservative dentistry is also known as basic or routine dentistry. It means the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of tooth and gum diseases as well as the repair of defective teeth.
The following treatments and procedures are included:
- Oral hygiene, i.e. scale and polish
- Intra-oral and extra-oral X-rays
- Root canal treatment
- Plastic dentures (*Pre-authorisation is required)
Please refer to the PG Group dental benefit table below for specific conservative benefits applicable to PG Group Medical Scheme.
Specialised dentistry (also known as advanced dentistry) occurs when teeth need to be replaced or when badly damaged teeth need to be repaired and a filling (conservative dentistry) would not be adequate.
Authorisation is required for some treatment before treatment starts.
This includes the following treatments:
- Partial chrome cobalt frame dentures (*Pre-authorisation required)
- Crowns & bridgework (*Pre-authorisation required)
- Implants (*Pre-authorisation required)
- Orthodontics (*Pre-authorisation required)
- Periodontics (*Pre-authorisation required)
- Maxillo-facial surgery
- Oral pathology
Please refer to the PG Group dental benefit table below for detail on how these benefits are covered.
Certain dental procedures (e.g. removal of impacted teeth or extensive dental treatment) might require moderate/deep sedation at your dentist or even general anaesthetics (GA) in hospital.
Authorisation is required before treatment.
