Implantaat - Medical aid

I am having a few issues, I need to get an (sorry do not know the english) Implantaat. I am on Discovery and they are so full of it. This will have to be done from my savings, etc etc but it will cost more than that.

I want to know, what medical aids are good in covering dental?
