Dental Implants – Are Among The Most Successful Procedures In Dentistry

Posted on Jan. 15th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, General News, Oral Surgery, Technology No Comments »

Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you lost a tooth. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They are extremely naturalistic, and those who receive dental implants often do not notice a difference in the oral function after the surgery has healed.

Effective Dental Care Strategies to Improve Your Health

Posted on Dec. 4th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Cavities, Dental Help, Dental Insurance, Extractions, Technology, Whitening No Comments »

Effective Strategies

  • Community and school partnerships raise awareness about the value of school sealant programs. Healthy Smiles for Wisconsin, a CDC-supported statewide effort to improve the oral health of Wisconsin children through school and community partnerships, began in October 2000. This program helped to establish new community-based sealant programs, and in 2007–2008, these programs provided sealants to 9,202 children in 19 counties.
  • Community coalitions are essential for gaining approval for community water fluoridation. During the past decade, broad-based citizen coalitions in several large U.S. cities have educated residents about the benefits of water fluoridation. Water fluoridation was approved in many of these jurisdictions, including Los Angeles and Sacramento, CA; Manchester, NH; Las Vegas, NV; San Antonio, TX; and Salt Lake City, UT.

Dental Hope for the Future

Posted on Dec. 3rd 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Cavities, Dental Help, Extractions, Hygiene, Success Stories, Technology, Whitening No Comments »

Hope for the future

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.

State Programs in Action: Ohio

School-based sealant programs in Ohio began in 1984, with a single demonstration program in one city. By 2000, 34 of Ohio’s 88 counties had programs. These programs target children who are at high risk for tooth decay and least likely to receive dental care.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Posted on Nov. 26th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, Dental News, General News, Oral Surgery, Technology 1 Comment »

Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums and bone that surround and support the teeth. In its early stage, called gingivitis, the gums can become swollen and red, and they may bleed. In its more serious form, called periodontitis, the gums can pull away from the tooth, bone can be lost, and the teeth may loosen or even fall out. Periodontal disease is mostly seen in adults. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are the two biggest threats to dental health.

Why use fluoride toothpaste or accept it from your dentist?

Posted on Sep. 2nd 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Technology No Comments »

At some point you need to do what you feel is best for you and or your family.  Is fluoride toxic?  Yes it is,  and yes you can overdose on fluoride.  That is why some people feel that until their children know better not to eat toothpaste they buy toothpaste that is all natural with no fluoride.  It is also the reason that there are warning label on tooth paste.  Tooth paste is not made for you to eat.  In my opinion one should just be aware of just how much fluoride they are using to avoid any issues.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Posted on Aug. 31st 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Technology, Whitening No Comments »

Whiting treatment is safe and but generally speaking the main side effect is tooth  sensitivity, but that is short term and normally stops when the treatment is over. Getting your whiting treatment done by a dentist will also help in the effectiveness of your treatment.
