Does Trupanion have dental coverage?
Our pets use their mouths for more than just eating. Because dogs and cats have paws instead of hands, they use their mouths to pick things up, examine objects, and help them navigate the world around them. Good oral hygiene and dental health is therefore crucial to our pets’ everyday lives, so having pet insurance that offers dental coverage is important.
Your Trupanion coverage includes treatment for all new dental illnesses and injuries if your pet has an annual dental exam and you follow your veterinarian’s recommended dental care.
A happy mouth means a happy pet
Most pets show signs of tooth and gum disease by age three, but many pet insurance companies don't provide dental coverage. Why? Because veterinary dental treatment is expensive! Thankfully, we're not like those other guys.
Your pal's oral health matters to us
We offer comprehensive coverage for new, unexpected dental conditions, including:
New dental illnesses & injuries
Extractions of permanent and baby (deciduous) teeth
Advanced dentistry, including caps & crowns

Why are annual dental exams required?
Just as you brush your teeth every day and see your dentist annually to prevent and identify any issues, good dental care is important for your pet’s health too. If anything, regular dental exams and cleanings are actually more important for dogs and cats because they’re not able to pick up a toothbrush or floss their teeth like humans can.
Now, if you weren’t doing anything to take care of your oral health, getting an eventual cavity or experiencing other tooth and gum issues probably wouldn’t come as a surprise. Likewise, avoiding routine pet dental care can lead to problems that could have otherwise been prevented.
