So I had an xray done at the dentist like a year ago she told me I needed to get my wisdom teeth removed. They are impacted and growing horizontally. (the crown of my wisdom teeth are growing into my back molars on all 4 of them.). So I've been putting it off I didn't have insurance and im terrified of being put to sleep. so my question will my insurance cover this procedure? My health insurance online benefits page says only covered services are listed "General - Dental - Limited to partial and complete bony impactions, orthognathic surgery and surgical treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder."
Then it says preauthorization is recommended. Some one please help me understand this, I'm thinking that my problem should be covered going off what they have stated. I'm going to make an apt tomorrow hopefully my jaw is killing me and my head feels like its going to explode. I'm assuming my headache is from my wisdom tooth.
