Healthy dental habits

  • Healthy diet

        A healthy diet leads to a healthier mouth. Eat less sweet and sticky foods. Eating more fruits and vegetables help fight cavities.

  • Dental hygiene

        Ask your dentist to show you the best way to brush and floss. Do this at your regular checkup.

  • Dental checkups

        SoonerCare pays for many dental services. This includes checkups, fluoride treatments, x-rays and more. We recommend that a child should have a first dental checkup no later than the first birthday.

  • Dental emergencies

        We all want our kids to be free of pain. That is why SoonerCare pays for emergency exams. We also pay to pull bad teeth when needed to stop pain or infection.
