Dental services

Medicare doesn't cover most dental care, dental procedures, or supplies, like cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, dentures, dental plates, or other dental devices. 

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)

 will pay for certain dental services that you get when you're in a hospital. Part A can pay for 

Inpatient hospital care [Glossary]

 if you need to have emergency or complicated dental procedures, even though the dental care isn't covered.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay 100% for non-covered services, including most dental care.
