Did you know that every dollar spent on preventive care could help save you money later on procedures that are more urgent, complex and costly? Routine dental checkups, cleanings and sealants can make all the difference when taking care of your oral and overall health.

Here’s a breakdown of what's often included in that preventive care:

Routine dental checkups and cleanings
  • Most dental plans cover at least two exams and cleanings at little or no out-of-pocket cost
  • Cleanings help lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease

Fluoride Treatments
  • Dental plans usually cover these treatments for children
  • They are suggested for kids 18 and under and can be a good defense against cavities

Dental Sealants
  • Coverage on sealants can vary, but most dental plans cover sealants as preventive care for children 18 and under on their first and second molars

  • Check your dental plan for details on which X-rays are covered
  • X-rays may need to be taken more frequently if you are at higher risk for cavities or gum disease
