Government Aid For Your Child's Dental Care With CDBS

Dental care is essential for a child’s overall health, but it can also be quite expensive. Fortunately, the government offers a Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) to help eligible families offset the cost of dental care. Best of all, there may be no out-of-pocket dental service if you utilize a provider who accepts CDBS.

Dental Treatments
Covered By CDBS

Preventive Dental Treatments

Dental checkups and cleanings are
essential to maintaining good oral health.
This allows dental practitioners to identify
oral concerns and conditions at an early

Tooth Extractions

No matter how old you are, you can
experience nervousness after having
a tooth extracted. Children are
especially vulnerable to this, especially
those who are very young.

Restorative Dental Procedures

Root canals and dental fillings are used to
restore or replace severely damaged teeth.
Using a tooth-colored material to fill in the
void left by the treatment, they conserve
the structure of damaged teeth.

Tooth Replacements

Missing teeth can be filled in with partial
dentures. One's self-confidence and
appearance can be affected when one
feels uncomfortable about something as
public as a smile.

Dental Imaging

To determine the health and condition
of your teeth, your dentist may take
x-rays around the mouth. X-rays show
where and how teeth should be
positioned in the mouth. Furthermore,
x-rays give dentists insight into patients'
jawbones' health and growth.

Get More Information About The CDBS Benefit Cap

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a government initiative that provides dental coverage for eligible children. One of the key features of the scheme is the benefit cap, which limits the amount that can be spent on dental care over a two-year period. CDBS provides eligible children with $1,026 in benefits, which can be used toward basic dental services. To be eligible for the program, children must be aged 0-17 and enrolled in Medicare. Families who are eligible for the Family Tax Benefit Part A are automatically enrolled in the program. The benefit cap also encourages families to utilize preventative dental care, such as regular checkups and cleaning, to avoid more costly procedures down the line.
