Dental Benefit – Senior Dental Care

Monday, Dec. 26th 2022 8:14 AM

Good oral health is essential for general health and well-being at any age. Oral health problems affect not only the ability to eat and speak but are inter-connected with serious health issues like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and preterm or low birth weight. However there is good news, oral health problems are preventable. A healthy smile for life starts with healthy habits like brushing and flossing, using fluoride, making smart food choices and eating habits, and visiting the dentist at least twice a year.

Dental Benefit – Brushing Your Teeth.

Friday, Dec. 23rd 2022 8:12 AM

It is important to  make sure you are brushing your teeth every day twice a day for at least two minutes as part of your daily dental care habit. For a healthy mouth the ADA recommends you follow these tips.   

1) Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.  

2) Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth. 

3) Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.

Dental Benefit – Low cost dental insurance for dental bridge needed.

Wednesday, Dec. 21st 2022 8:08 AM

I need to get a new dental bridge.   I had my old one now for over eight years and I need a new one because the tooth that it  is attached too has a new cavity under it.  Not even sure how that happen but that is what I am being told.  If they take the bridge off to fix it I will need to pay for a new bridge. I do not have dental insurance and need help.  

Reply: You may want to buy yourself some dental insurance. By getting an individual dental insurance plan, it will help you with your dental care and reduce your dental cost. Look at dental HMO plans for now since generally dental HMO insurance plans do not have long terms waiting periods for the dental care you currently need to have   You may also want to look into dental discount plans options. Dental discount plans will give you a discount off the cost of the new bridge and all your other dental needs. Hopefully so that you can afford to get your needed dental work done.

Dental Benefit – Bad Breath Issues

Friday, Dec. 16th 2022 2:15 PM

I have this really nice girl friend and I really do like her a lot.  The thing is when we first started going out things were find but lately I have been noticing she has really bad breath most of the time.  Now I know she brushes her teeth and I seen her floss before too.   I do not think it is because she does not have good oral hygiene since everything else about her is clean. What would make her have bad breath and is there any advise I can give her.  Not to be mean but this will start to become a issue with us if it goes on.  

Answer: Depending on how much she is willing to listen with out taking it personally and getting up set. I would say have her see a dentist. She may have gum disease or some dental tooth decay both can cause bad breath issues.   Other reasons to have bad breath can be health related such as: Diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, lung disease, sinus disease, reflux disease.

Dental Benefit – Checking Out Dental Discount Plans

Friday, Nov. 25th 2022 6:54 AM

I do not really understand how dental discount plans work.  Why would a dentist give you dental discounts off their work?  Are they raising their prices then just saying they are giving you a discount when they are not really?  How do you make sure you are getting discounts that the plan says you should get.    

Answer: General/Family dentist have agree to the fee schedule that is listed under the plan. So it not like on those services they are raising their rate since it is a set cost for the services listed.    for the services not listed they are to give you a 20 percent discount off their own cost so I guess they could raise their cost. However you can also ask for a price list for the cash services so that you know what they charge for thing ahead of time.
