Does Medicare cover dental?

Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) can include routine dental coverage. Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not typically include routine dental coverage, such as dental exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and bridges. However, there are some exceptions. For example, if you suffer an accident or contract a disease that affects the jaw, Medicare may cover some of the costs. Stand-alone dental plans can also be purchased to cover routine dental costs.
