Here’s a list of our benefits and why these procedures are very important for good oral health:

Basic and emergency benefits

This benefit allows access to a dental practitioner or dental therapist on the GetSavvi Health network list and includes cover up to R1 650 per family per annum and R3 300 emergency cover subject to a list of dental procedures and codes approved by the service provider.

Explained: A filling refers to the repairing of a tooth that has been damaged in an accident or from decay. When getting a filling, the dentist first removes the decay in the affected area, cleans the tooth and then fills the cavity. The severity of the damage will determine what material the dentist chooses to use to fill the cavity. A filling also prevents any further damage to the tooth.
