Fluoride is safe and effective when it is used properly.

Posted on Sep. 3rd 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help No Comments »

All water-fluoridation systems are checked daily to maintain safe fluoride levels for drinking. Parents should supervise the use of all fluoride products in the home. Fluoride-supplement tablets should be stored safely away from young children. In 2010, the American Dental Association’s Council on Scientific Affairs recommended fluoride supplements only for children who have a high risk of caries. This advice applies regardless of the amount of fluoride in the child’s drinking water. Dentists limit the amount of tablets they prescribe at one time to reduce the risk of overdose. To avoid any chance of overdose, do not stock up on fluoride tablets in your home. If you have any questions regarding fluoride risks, talk to your dentist or physician.

Dental Opinions, How do discount dental plans work?

Posted on Dec. 11th 2015 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Question: I thinking about buying a dental discount plan just wanting to have a better understanding on how they work.

Answer: Most individual dental insurance plans require you to satisfy waiting periods and deductibles before having major and sometimes even minor restorative work done. Discount dental plans help make maintaining good oral health a lot more affordable. And, with no waiting periods or complicated coverage procedures, dental discount plans are about as simple as you can get.

Dental Opinion, Potential stroke therapy

Posted on Aug. 17th 2015 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Stem cells from teeth form brain-like cells:   Stem cells are cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types, aiding tissue regeneration, cardiovascular disease and blood disease treatments. But now, researchers have found that stem cells from teeth grow to resemble brain cells, a discovery they say could be harnessed in the brain for stroke therapy.  The team, from the University of Adelaide in Australia, publish their results in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy.

Dental Opinion, Athletes’ risk of concussion reduced by custom-made mouthguards

Posted on Aug. 13th 2015 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

When it comes to buying a mouthguard, parents who want to reduce their child’s risk of a sports-related concussion should visit a dentist instead of a sporting goods store.    High school football players wearing store-bought, over-the-counter (OTC) mouthguards were more than twice as likely to suffer mild traumatic brain injures (MTBI)/concussions than those wearing custom-made, properly fitted mouthguards, reports a new study in the May/June 2014 issue of General Dentistry, the peer-reviewed clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).

Dental Opinions, Choosing the Right Tooth Brush

Posted on May. 11th 2014 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Choose a brush that has a seal of approval by the American Dental Association (ADA) The type of brush you use is not nearly as important as brushing the right way and doing it twice a day. Any approved brush will be a good tool, but you have to know how to use it and to use it daily twice a day for good dental habits.

Dental Opinions, How Eating Disorders Can Effect Your Dental and Oral Health Care.

Posted on Sep. 3rd 2013 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia, robs the body of much-needed vitamins and minerals, and without proper nutrition, the gums can become increasingly soft, tender, and bleeding easily.

Eating disorders that involve excessive vomiting, can cause discoloration and erosion of the teeth due to constant contact with acid from the stomach. People who have eating disorders also may experience swollen salivary glands, dry mouth, sensitive teeth, and loss of tooth enamel.  Anyone who has eating orders should consult a doctor, however let your dentist know about the disorder as well so that he/she can scheduled dental exams to monitor your dental health.

Pennsylvania Law Requires Dental Insurance to Cover General Anesthesia.

Posted on Aug. 9th 2013 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help No Comments »

Pennsylvania Legislature and Governor Tom Corbett signed and passed a bill that requires insurance companies to cover the cost of general anesthesia for young children and patients with disabilities.    Dr Bernie Dishler, president of the Pennsylvania Dental Association, stated for people who can not be handled in a normal dental setting, their situation just gets worse and worse, and then you have to deal with infection and all sorts of things that have occurred because a small cavity wasn’t taken care of.   Part of the problem is that many private insurance plans have yearly maximum limitations that caps out at $1500 – $2000 for dental service. The use of general anesthesia can eat up most if not all of that cost, leaving people having to pay out-of-pocket for either the anesthesia or the dental work. That out-of-pocket cost can cause people to put off dental treatment, which often leads to more serious and costly problems.

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued an opinion that upholds the Affordable Health Care Act

Posted on Jun. 28th 2012 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help 1 Comment »

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued an opinion that upholds the Affordable Health Care Act

This includes the individual mandate for coverage.  The case challenged the constitutionality of several parts of the law, including the rule that most people in the U.S. must get health coverage.   We will continue to carry out provisions of the law by thoughtfully implementing the new requirements for customers and members. We will also continue to look for ways to address increasing costs that are crippling our health care system, including: ·      Advancing our partnership with primary care physicians announced earlier this year that we believe will substantially improve quality and member health, and potentially reduce the trend in overall medical costs by as much as 20% by 2015. ·      Coordinating patient care through the use of IBM-Watson technology to promote evidence-based health care and ensure that millions of Americans receive the most effective courses of treatment.  We look forward to continuing our efforts to work with policymakers and other key stakeholders to build a health care delivery system that provides security and affordability to all Americans.
