Preventive dental services include routine oral exams, X-rays, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. Learn if you’re leaving money on the table by skipping your preventive dental care.

Now that you have dental insurance, you might find yourself wondering: “What is covered under my preventive benefit?”

That’s a great question!

Preventive dental services include routine oral exams, X-rays, cleanings, sealants and fluoride treatments. Educational instruction, such as proper brushing and flossing methods, is also considered the best way to prevent tooth decay. They’re considered preventive because they’re aimed at identifying and stopping early dental issues before they arise.

If you have to visit your dentist for fillings, resin restorations, root canals or extractions, you’ve gone beyond preventive dental care and basic required procedures.
