Dental Benefit, Yellow or Orange Stained Baby Teeth.

Tuesday, Aug. 8th 2017 6:33 AM

If a child’s teeth looks yellow or orange, The odds are they are not being cleaned thoroughly and have plaque build-up that is stained with food debris. If this is the case usually the stains can be removed by brushing the child teeth with a little bit of adult toothpaste or baking soda and water. Even though stains do not necessarily indicate tooth decay, plaque build-up on teeth can cause gum disease. Therefore seeing a dentist for a proper check up and cleaning would be advised.

Dental Benefit Getting A Pre-Treatment Estimate

Wednesday, Aug. 2nd 2017 6:22 AM

It is a good idea to get a pre-treatment estimate from the insurance company, if your dental care will be extensive. You may want to ask your dentist to complete and submit a request for a cost estimate, sometimes called a pre-treatment estimate. This will allow you to know in advance what procedures are covered, the amount the benefit plan will pay toward treatment and your financial responsibility. However it is important to note that a pre-treatment estimate is not a guarantee of payment. When the services are complete and a claim is received for payment, the insurance company will calculate payment based on your current eligibility, amount remaining in your annual maximum and any deductible requirements.

Dental Benefit, Dental Care and Water

Sunday, Jul. 16th 2017 8:33 AM

Did you know that most infant foods easily wash off Baby’s teeth with just a drink of water after meals. But it is good to introduce a toothbrush as soon as possible, so baby can get used to having it in his/her mouth. You probably will not need to use the brush to actually clean Baby’s teeth until he/she’s eating only table foods (and has a significant number of teeth), at around 18 months. However, you will want to gently clean your child’s teeth with a toothbrush or thimble-like cleaner and some bicarbonate of soda if your toddler has eaten sticky, sugary foods.
