Beware of Foods That Get Stuck in Your Mouth.

Posted on Nov. 11th 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

Your saliva does a good job of breaking down food and washing it down your throat and into your stomach through swallowing. However, some food are either fibrous or sticky and thy can easily get stuck in between your teeth. These left over good particles over time will act as fuel for odor causing bacteria causing you to have bad breath. That is why daily flossing after eating is so important not only to help rid yourself of bad breath issue but to protect your teeth from tooth decay.

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.

Your saliva and how it helps to protect your dental health.

Posted on Aug. 27th 2017 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

 Your mouth and teeth are constantly bathed in saliva. Most people never give much thought to their spit, but this fluid is remarkable for what it does to help protect our oral health.   Saliva keeps teeth and other parts of your mouth moist and washes away bits of food. Saliva contains minerals that strengthen teeth. It includes buffering agents. They reduce the levels of acid that can decay teeth. Saliva also protects against some viruses and bacteria

Saliva test may be able to reveal deadly diseases early enough to treat them

Posted on Apr. 29th 2017 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

UCLA research could lead to a simple saliva test capable of diagnosing — at an early stage — diabetes and cancer, and perhaps neurological disorders and autoimmune diseases. The study, the most comprehensive analysis ever conducted of RNA molecules in human saliva, reveals that saliva contains many of the same disease-revealing molecules that are contained in blood. It was published online today by the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Chemistry and will be published in the journal’s January 2015 special print issue, “Molecular Diagnostics: A Revolution in Progress.”

Posted on Apr. 9th 2017 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

When searching for a new family dentist make sure the dentist/dental office is quipped to provide services to children as well as adults. One common mistake made is not choosing a provider that is able to provide service to young child. Or you choose a dental provider that may provide services to children but does not have an office that is kid friendly. This becomes a very important matter especially when dealing with dental insurance, since there are some dental insurance plans which will only let you go to one provider for the whole family.  Therefore it becomes important to see a dentist that able to provider dental care services regardless of age and offers an environment that benefits both children and adults.

If you have a current dental insurance but you are no longer happy with your current dentist or your current dentist is no longer accepting your dental insurance, it may be time to search for a new dental provider.  With current insurance you want to make sure that the new dental office either accepts your dental insurance plan or that you have a dental insurance plan that lets you choose your own provider.

That does not mean you can not change dental office only that you must still make sure you going to a dentist that is a provider of said plan.

Dental Opinion, How Do Invisalign Braces Effectively Move Teeth

Posted on Apr. 1st 2017 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

Like brackets and arch wires, Invisalign braces or aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign braces not only control forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. Instead of pulling your teeth to their target position like traditional braces, Invisalign pushes your teeth to its location. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. Invisalign 3D imaging technology plans out the movement and figures out how many aligners will be needed to get the job done.
