Most Delta Dental plans focus on preventive care and some even cover preventive services at 100%! But what exactly is preventive care? 

In general, preventive care includes dental services that help you maintain good oral health. The goal of preventive dental care is to reduce the chance you’ll need more painful or costly procedures down the road. Preventive services often include:

  • Dental check ups and exams
  • Routine cleanings
  • Routine X-rays
  • Fluoride application (for children)
  • Sealants (for children)
Don't forget! You should also practice preventive dental care at home. You can reduce your risk of oral health issues by brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day and eating a balanced diet.
