As Halloween approaches our dental office, Advanced Smiles Dentistry, wants to remind you that in this holiday we’ll be open to disenchant the spell from your oral health.


Halloween Candy Cavities

It’s spooky season! there’s nothing scarier than a giant bag full of Halloween sweets. Candy and cavities can go hand-in-hand. Therefore, minimizing tooth decay risks this Halloween season is important.

To prevent Halloween candy-related cavities, your favorite dentist offers preventive dental care and some oral health key points.

Which dental procedures are considered preventive dentistry?


To explain, preventive dentistry includes services provided by the best dentists to reduce the likelihood of contracting oral health conditions that can be more expensive to treat and uncomfortable to experience. 


For example, dental issues can be prevented by:


  • Dental consultation, including:

            -Individual x-rays

            -Panoramic x-ray

            -CT scan

            -Clinical evaluation

            -Dental photos

  • Teeth cleaning
  • Dental educational instruction, such as:

            -Technics for proper teeth brushing

            -Flossing technic

            -Nutrition and oral habits


Does dental insurance cover preventive dentistry?

Until now, many dental insurance plans cover preventive dental care, and some cover it 100%. Overall routine exams, cleanings and X-rays won’t cost you anything because you might get back 100% of what you paid out of pocket. You may have to pay a deductible or copay, but never the full price of the work done.

Important to realize, some dental insurances come with restrictions. Under those circumstances you need to be sure you understand the details of your coverage before booking a dentist appointment in Tijuana.
