En español | Generally, Medicare does not cover dentures or routine dental care that you need primarily for the health of your teeth.
For example, Medicare does not cover routine dental checkups, teeth cleaning or cavity fillings. However, Medicare will cover some dental services if part of a covered procedure. For example, tooth extractions necessary to prepare for radiation therapy of jaw cancer.
If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, check with your plan to see what dental services may be covered.
