Preventive dentistry is simply the routine practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy.  Preventative dental care includes your dental exams, xrays, dental cleanings with your dental hygienist, dental sealants and flouride treatment.   Most insurance companies, realizing the importance and benefit of these services, cover preventative dental services at 100%.  

While preventive dental procedures help you avoid potential issues or catch and correct them early to keep your smile healthy; basic services are restorative work to fix damage that has already occurred. Basic dental services include fillings, root canal therapy, dental extractions and periodontal cleanings.  Once your have met your annual dental deductible, your dental insurance company will pay a percentage (typically 80%) of your basic dental services.  

Major dental services are complex dental work to restore decayed, broken or missing teeth.  Major dental services include crowns, bridges, dentures and partial dentures, and dental implants and implant crowns. Your dental deductible will usually apply to major dental services and once paid, your dental insurance company will pay a percentage (typically 50%) of your major dental services.
