Dr Dental – Saving on your Dental Health Care.

08/14/22

Times are still hard for many people and for some putting of their scheduled dental visits may seem like a way to cut cost. Although there are dental insurance plans that help with the cost of dental care some people do not get dental insurance because they feel they are not struggling with large dental issues. Therefore both going to the dentist when needed and having proper benefits available are put off due to cutting cost.

However if you really want to avoid large expensive dental care bills, you should have some degree of dental insurance coverage’s. By delaying your needed dental care, your dental care issue will get even more complicated and then you will have to pay more in having your teeth fixed. Yet even most low cost dental insurance plans offer preventive dental care services for free helping you keep your dental appointments and help to prevent larger dental issues.

Dr Dental – Twice A Year Dental Check Ups

08/12/22

Is seeing your dentist twice a year for checkups necessary. The rule of thumb as been that one needs to see a dentist at least twice a year for a dental checkups. But is that really necessary for everyone or is it possible that a person should see a dentist more then just twice a year? Professionals from the medical field agree that this dental rule would mean that everybody is exposed to the same risk of developing diseases, which is not true. In fact dental statistics relating to the health status of middle class US population have revealed that the majority of them are not even struggling with decay or gum disease. Yet other people that have different health issues may need to see a dentist more then just twice a year. Such as a person who is a diabetic has a higher risk of tooth loss so seeing a dentist more often would be important in maintaining dental health. Seeing a dentist twice a year when it is not necessary will not hurt, but not going to the dentist when needed can cause both dental and overall health issues. In short speak to your dentist and see how frequently you should go and what best for you.

When looking for a cosmetic dentist do your home work. A little research goes a long way in choosing a cosmetic dentist. Make sure the dentist is properly licensed and accredited.

First impressions: Before having any dental work started by a cosmetic dentist you will have a dental exam or consultation (Note many cosmetic dentist will offer free consultations though out the year) This first impression will tell you a lot about the dentist and the dental office.

Ask Questions: Make sure you ask any questions you feel is necessary in understanding the dental services being suggested. A professional will go over everything until you have a full understanding. Choose a cosmetic dentist that has good communication skills. In short if the dentist you are seeing can not explain everything so that is clear to you or seems bothered by your questions, look for a different dentist.

Cost is always a factor. Cosmetic dentistry can be costly especially when most dental insurance do not offer benefits for cosmetic dental services. When seeing a cosmetic dentist beware that there may be a cost factor to think about. Before starting any dental services make sure you know what your cost is going to be. As well as finding out how the dental office handles payment, such as do they offer any payment plan options? Cost is only a real issue when it is unclear from the start and you are left feeling that you are paying more then you may have thought.

Why Buy Dental Insurance? – DrDental.com

07/15/22

If you do not receive dental insurance though your employer, it can be often times not thought about.  However, having dental insurance will help make dental care more affordable.   Yet why should you buy dental insurance when you may feel all you are having done are cleaning and have no real need for dental insurance to help you with that. The fact is if all you are having are basic dental cleanings you may feel like the cost of dental insurance would excess the cost of the dental services.

However what happen when you need more then just a basic cleaning?  What if you brake a tooth or dental decay goes treated and causes large dental services to be needed.  That when you will be wishing you had some dental insurance in place.  Many dental insurance plans that let you pick and choose your own dentist also come with long waiting periods.  Making buying those plans important to do so before you required larger dental care.   People that do not have dental insurance tend to put off their dental care.  In turn requiring larger dental services do to defer treatment, making their dental care cost go up even more.

People that have dental insurance tend to see their dentist for the twice a year check ups and cleaning since in many cases this is a free service under their insurance plan. In addition since these people are seeing a dentist regularly they are also able to avoid having larger dental care needs there by saving money on their overall dental health care cost.  So the real question is why are you not buying dental insurance?

Dr Dental – Medicaid and SCHIP

07/11/22

Medicaid and SCHIP are a good source for low income children to receive dental care.

Dental decay is one of the most common chronic illness among children. Although it has been established that poor dental and oral health care is also an integral component of children’s overall health and well-being. Still many children do not receive the dental care recommended. Difficulties in obtaining dental care disproportionately affect low-income and minority children.

Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) are major sources of dental coverage, reaching millions of low-income children, but inadequate access to dental care among these children remains a critical health policy challenge

Dr Dental – Homeopathic Remedies

07/06/22

Homeopathic Teething Remedies are They Safe?

While some parents may swear by homeopathic teething drops and tablets. Many pediatricians however, claim that the risks of homeopathic treatments far outweigh any potential benefits. While homeopathic treatments are required by the US FDA to meet certain standards for strength, purity, and packaging, they’re not rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness the way prescription and over-the-counter medications are. Therefor before using a homeopathic remedy, one should check with your child’s doctor or the FDA, which has recalled certain homeopathic products due to safety concerns.
