Dental Opinions – Damage Retainer

Posted on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd 2020 5:05 AM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Question: I just got my retainer about a month ago. while cleaning it I put them in very hot water to kill germs. I did not think they would melt so easily. I called my Orthodontic office and told them what I did and that the retainer now does not fit right. They said I can have a new one but it would take at least three weeks for it to come in. She stated my teeth may shift a little. Is there anyway i can fix my old retainer until the new one comes in? I want to keep my teeth from shifting.

Dental Opinions – Dental Hope for the Future

Posted on Tuesday, Oct. 27th 2020 9:46 AM by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help No Comments »

Compared with their parents, many Americans now enjoy markedly better oral health. However, certain segments of the population (e.g., those who have low incomes, are members of racial or ethnic minority groups, or are older) have severe dental decay, much of which remains untreated. Healthy People 2010 objectives seek to eliminate these disparities, so that all Americans receive the benefits of good oral health. Community-based programs, such as community water fluoridation and school-based dental sealant programs, are cost-effective ways to achieve this goal. For example, if half of the children at high risk for tooth decay participated in school sealant programs, half of the caries that these children otherwise would develop would be prevented.

Dental Opinions – Messed up Teeth are Giving me the Blues.

Posted on Friday, Oct. 16th 2020 9:35 AM by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help No Comments »

This is hard for me to write about but would like some advise on what to do. To start with I am 32 and my teeth are so bad that they hurt I can only eat soft foods because I am afraid to eat anything to hard for fear of braking my teeth. I know I have no one to blame but myself for he problem that I am now facing. When I was younger I just did not take good care of my teeth like I should have. My mom was poor so we did not have much and going to the dentist was always costly for her. She told me and my brother that we needed to brush extra well and to floss every day because she could not afford to fix our teeth.

Dental Opinions – Conservative Treatment for TMJ Disorders

Posted on Friday, Oct. 9th 2020 9:25 AM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Because more studies are needed on the safety and effectiveness of most treatments for jaw joint and muscle disorders, experts strongly recommend using the most conservative, reversible treatments possible. Conservative treatments do not invade the tissues of the face, jaw, or joint, or involve surgery. Reversible treatments do not cause permanent changes in the structure or position of the jaw or teeth. Even when TMJ disorders have become persistent, most patients still do not need aggressive types of treatment.
