Dental Fillings and Extractions Covered by 2018 DentalBlue by Blue Cross NC

Although dental fillings are usually performed to treat cavities, they can also repair broken, cracked, or worn teeth. In a dental filling procedure, a dentist will use a topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment and remove the decay from the affected teeth. Then, they will use a composite filling to complete the procedure and ask you to bite down to make sure your teeth align properly.

An extraction is another common dental procedure that involves removing a tooth because of trauma, disease, or crowding. In an extraction, a dentist will numb the area to reduce discomfort. After the tooth is pulled, they will educate you on a post extraction regimen. You will likely experience a bit of bleeding and be required to rinse your mouth gently, avoid drinking through a straw, and eat soft foods like applesauce and yogurt for at least a few days.

Since fillings and extractions are expensive yet often necessary for optimal oral health, it’s important to have a dental insurance policy that covers them. Fortunately, dental fillings and extractions are covered by 2018 Dental Blue by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.

If you opt for this plan, you’ll be able to select any dentist you’d like. However, if you do choose a dentist in our network, you’ll enjoy various benefits including claims filing and money savings because you won’t have to pay for any charges over the allowed amount for covered services.
