Yes, Medicaid covers dental cleanings for both children and adults. In fact, regular dental cleanings are an important part of preventive oral healthcare, and Medicaid encourages all eligible beneficiaries to receive regular dental checkups and cleanings.
For children, Medicaid provides coverage for comprehensive dental services, including cleanings, exams, fillings, and other necessary treatments. For adults, Medicaid coverage is more limited, but generally includes basic preventive services such as cleanings, exams, and X-rays.
It's important to note that the specific dental services covered by Medicaid may vary depending on your state's Medicaid program and the healthcare provider you visit. It's recommended to contact your Medicaid office or dental provider to confirm which services are covered under your plan.
