Replacement of an existing denture is a benefit only if it is unsatisfactory and cannot be made satisfactory.

Partial dentures will not be replaced within any five (5) year period unless necessary due to natural tooth loss where the addition or replacement of teeth to the existing partial is not feasible.

Fixed bridges are not covered on posterior teeth when abutment teeth are dentally sound, and would be crowned only for the purpose of supporting a poetic. A fixed bridge used under these circumstances is considered optional, and a patient is responsible for the difference in cost between the fixed bridge and the partial denture.

A removal partial denture is considered an adequate restoration of a case when teeth on both sides of a dental arch are missing. If the patient selects another course of treatment, the patient is responsible for the difference in cost between the optional treatment and a partial denture.

Removal cast partial dentures are not a benefit for patients under the age of sixteen (16).
