Oral health and you

Staying up-to-date on your dental care has overall health benefits and it starts with preventive care. Preventive care is what is done to take care of our teeth and gums, from brushing and flossing to maintaining a healthy diet and engaging in regular visits with the dentist. The MetLife dental plan includes preventive coverage, covered at 100 percent, for routine cleanings, fluoride applications, X-rays, emergency care and oral examinations.

Early detection and prevention are important and may minimize the need for more serious dental work down the road such as root canals, extractions and fillings. Take pre-emptive measures now for a healthy, happy smile tomorrow. To help you learn more about the importance of preventive dental care, MetLife has created an FAQ document (pdf opens in new tab).
