Now that you have dental insurance, you might find yourself wondering: “What is considered preventive dental care?”
That’s a great question!
Preventive dental services include routine oral exams, X-rays, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and educational instruction such as proper brushing and flossing methods. They’re considered preventive because they’re aimed at identifying and stopping early dental issues before they arise.
If you have to go in for fillings, resin restorations, root canals or extractions, you’ve gone beyond preventive dental care and require basic procedures.
