Dental hygiene question
In one of my classes at school, my teacher is having everyone write about person hygiene and why it is important. It makes me wonder if she thinks she has students that stink or something. Anyway, I got stuck with dental health.
I know why we should brush and floss our teeth. My mom says we need to brush our gum line and our tongues too. Just my luck my mom is a dentist, so I know she is right. You think she help me more, but she says that is all the help she is giving me and that I need to find out why for myself. She is letting me use the Internet to find out the reason why. Any help would be nice.
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.
How do discount dental plans work? As we become aware about our oral health, there has been a demand for affordable dental care. Discount dental plans are the newest option for those without coverage. These dental discount plans are much cheaper than traditional dental insurance, and also offer almost equal coverage for all dental work, even cosmetic procedures not covered by standard indemnity dental plans.
The catch is that dental discount plans are not really insurance at all. They work more like club memberships, where the cost of membership (your “premium”) earns a steep discount on any club service (dental work) you buy. The discount normally applies to all dental office services performed by an approved “plan” dentist, but no procedure is covered completely.
Dr. David Blunt announced (July 1, 2009) the launch http://www.DentalOpinions.com/blog/ and web site. The web site will focus on dental insurance plan reviews, dental consumer opinions, and provide a discussion forum for dental office reviews and opinions on dental health care. “This dental web site should help fill the gap for candid reviews and opinions from consumers” said Dr. Blunt. “There is a lot of misinformation floating around on the internet and our hope is to help clarify some of it.”
Dr. Blunt has been serving the dental insurance industry since 1983 and is a recognized dental health advisor. If you have any questions please feel free to log into the dentalopinions.com blog and give us your feedback.
Many times what is stated as a free trial is not really free. You need to read every thing. I do not like saying fine print because it is not really fine. However, if you go pass the “Free Trail” and continue to read you just may see that you have to either coment to buying the product at least once or you have to cancel within a set time frame. If you do not cancel they will contine to send the product and charge you for it.
Try call your credit card company and see if they can remove the charge. Explain to them that you though you were getting a free trail and was charged. They may be able to help you.
I have not ordered the product that you asked about. However, My mom has done the same thing you did not once but twice. She order something on line that says it has a free trial and got charge $$ for the product. You are right about reading the fine print. Many times they will state you only get the free trial if you pay for one month. This is not hidden but you do need to really look for it. I suggest you call your credit card company and have them decline the charges. They normally will if you stated what happen.
With that being said I have taken the time to give you some information about teeth whiten every thing from home remedy to over the conter products and what a dentist can do. I hope it helps.
Some research suggest that whitening strips may have side effect such as gum irritation and tooth sensitivity, especially for first time users; with that in mind one may want to start off with shorter time used or a less concentration of whitener. If you are still experiencing the side effect you may wish to stop the use of the strips.
Here are some suggested home remedy that may help to whiten your teeth.
1)Brushing with Lemon Juice
2)Brushing with Baking Soda
3)Brushing with Hydrogen Peroxide
4)Brushing with Salt
5)Rubbing Strawberries on your teeth then Brushing off.
However, all though the above may help whiten your teeth they can do damage as well. They contain sugar and acids and are abrasive, all of which may damaged your enamel that helps protects your teeth
You may wish to consult a Cosmetic Specialist
Cosmetic dentistry may help you to get your best smile at any age. One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures to a perfect smile is bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding is a fairly painless procedure usually performed in one dental visit by applying an enamel like material to your teeth which is then shaped, hardened with a special light and polished.
For a more dramatic smile, porcelain veneers can make a drastic difference. With veneers, you can control the color, position, shape, and size of your new teeth which can correct crooked, worn, or chipped teeth. This procedure can cost between $1,200 – $3,500 per tooth.
Cosmetic dentistry insurance coverage is not afforded by most dental insurance companies. If you are with a group dental insurance company through your employer, you may want to inquire if cosmetic dentistry insurance coverage is provided under your dental plan.
Cosmetic dental coverage is normally provided by discount dental plans. Discount dental plans usually cover 15 to 20 percent of the cosmetic dental care cost.
There are many different types of tooth past that have whitening as well as mouth wash with whitening this may be another alternative. I suggest you talk with a local dentist and see what you feel will be best for you.
