The more you know about the dental plan the better equipped you are, and therefore, the greater the likelihood that you will make a reasonable decision.

Try to decide on how much coverage you or your family needs as well as how much you can afford to spend on a dental plan. Do not assume that the higher the cost of the dental plan is the better the coverage’s. Different types of dental plan have different limitations. Also if you are wanting to stay with a family dentist before searching for a dental insurance plan find out what plans that dental office is a provider of.

Dental Opinions, Brushing Teeth and Whitening

Posted on Jun. 5th 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Insurance Comments Off on Dental Opinions, Brushing Teeth and Whitening

My teeth are healthy but they are yellowish. I do not like to use teeth whittening strips as I tried them once and really did not like them and how my teeth because senative for over a week after using strips. If I just brush my teeth without out stopping will that help to whitten my teeth.

Reply: You should brush your teeth after every meal when ever possible. There are many brands of toothpaste with whiting that you can use that may help whiten your teeth. You should also avoid staining your teeth (ie with coffee soda and smoking to name a few) You should brush your teeth for two to three minutes.

I am not sure what you mean by brushing without stopping. I can only guess that you mean to brush for a longer period of time then the suggested two to three minutes. You do not want to brush to the point that you are hurting your teeth and gums. If your teeth are not getting white by brushing normally, then you may wish to speak to your dentist to get advise on what they may recommend you to do
