Dr Dental – Improving Dental Health Though High Tech X-Rays

11/10/20

Digitized X-rays are now replacing traditional radiographs in many dental offices, as they become more popular with dentists.

Digital X-rays are faster and more efficient than traditional radiographs. Your dentist can also store digital images on the computer and compare them with previous or future images to see how your dental health is being maintained.

Digital X-rays dose help in finding cavities but they also help look at the bone below the teeth to determine if the bone level of support is good. Dentists can use the X-rays to check the placement of an dental implant. These digital X-rays also help endodontists to see if they have performed the procedure properly and because the sensor and phosphor plates are more sensitive to X-rays than film is, the radiation dose is significantly reduced.

Dr Dental – Creating Protein is More Effective then Bone Grafting in Dental Implants

11/06/20

A study shows that a bone creating protein has been found to be more effective then bone grafting in dental implants. Some people that get dental implants may have either not enough bone or bone that is too thin to hold the dental implant when that happens, the current solution is to do a bone graft to anchor in the permanent prosthetic teeth. However, that technique can be problematic because it involves additional surgeries to harvest the bone

Studies done at the GHSU Laboratory for Applied Periodontal & Craniofacial Regeneration found that implanting bone morphogenetic protein in the sinus more new bone will form within four weeks than using conventional bone grafting at the same site.

DrDental – Individual Dental Insurance Alternatives for California

10/17/20

I been looking for dental insurance for myself but I am quickly finding out that the plans I seen on line are just costly for me at this time. What I would really like to know is if getting a low cost dental discount plan really a good alternative to dental insurance?

Reply: Since there are many good low cost HMO insurance plans in California I would suggest comparing any dental discount plans you review to a HMO insurance plan. Discount plans are a good way to save cost in all your dental care services, but you typically still pay for all services just at a reduced cost.

HMO insurance plan generally provide free to little cost preventive dental care services. You can then compare the rest of the services cost to a dental discount plan savings and see which comes out ahead for you in your area

DrDental – How Do I Find the Best Dental Insurance Plan?

09/29/20

How to find the best/right dental insurance plan is a question that comes frequently, though there is one answer to that question. First what dose the “best” means to you? Is it the best price, or deductible, or maybe you need coverage for orthodontics. Maybe you are wanting to stay with a certain dental office or you need a plan that dose not have waiting periods. Finding the “best” insurance plan takes work and knowing your own dental care needs. Trying to find a dental insurance plan that best fit your needs. Sometimes you may have to give up something to get what is most important to you.

  • Example: You may want to stay with a certain dental office but they do not accept any HMO plans therefore you may have to deal with waiting periods in order to have an insurance plan that will let you keep your provider

Make sure you read each plan terms and conditions carefully so you know what is covered and what is not and you have an understanding of how the insurance plan would benefit you if you where to buy it.

Dr Dental – Baby Dental Appointment Time

10/21/19

Question: Why should on have to take a toddler to the dentist when their teeth just fall out anyway when their adult teeth come in?

Answer: It is true that our primary teeth are eventually replaced with our permanent (adult) teeth, but your child dental health is still very important to their oral health and overall health care. Once a baby tooth starts to decay, the bacteria in their mouth progresses pretty quickly, seeping thorough the tooth and going to the bone. Potentially causing dental infections that an even be fatal. Sure that is the worst consequence. Yet even if that dose not happen, if bacteria lurk in the baby teeth, the enamel for adult teeth may not be formed properly and they can be permanently damaged.

Dr Dental – Child Pediatric Dentist

10/17/19

Question: My son is 18 months of age and I have been told that he should see a dentist for his regular dental check up. Yet I am not sure if he can go to our family dentist or if he needs to see a pediatric dentist.

Answer: This is a common question for parents to ask. For the same reason you do not take your child to your own internist, you take him to a pediatrician, you would want to take your son to a pediatric dentist.

Children are not miniature adults. Their bodies are very different, and so are their teeth. A pediatric dentist has expertise in those differences

10/15/19

By the time your baby is six months of age, your dentist should assess the likelihood of your baby having a future dental problems. This may include a dental exam of the mother and her dental history, as the condition of her teeth can often predict her child’s teeth. Be sure your child see a dentist after the first primary teeth appear. After your first visit schedule regular visits every six months or as advise by the dentist.

Experts recommend that your baby see a dentist no later then 12 months of age. Babies with dental problems caused by injury, disease, or a developmental problem should be seen by a children’s pediatric dentist right away. If these dental problems are not limited to the surfaces of the teeth you baby should also be seen by a children’s doctor
