Do you accept my insurance?
We accept most insurance programs. If you would like to know if we are a PREFERRED PROVIDER on your plan, we recommend that you check your insurance plans provider directory, website or with your Human Resources Department. In most cases there isn't much difference in the cost to you out of network. We will be happy to help you find out what the difference would be. We are not currently providers on any discount programs or HMO's.
Will my insurance cover this?
Insurance benefits vary widely from company to company and employer to employer. We recommend that our patients know their plans limitations. We will submit predeterminations to your insurance company free of charge and will assist you in working with your insurance company to maximize your plans benefits. We do make all treatment recommendations based solely on our patient's dental health, not on what insurance covers.
Why do I, an adult, need fluoride treatments?
One of the greatest breakthroughs in preventive dentistry is the use of fluoride. Almost all water naturally contains some fluoride, but not in sufficient quantity to protect teeth. The benefits for adults are the same as for children. Fluoride can help repair a cavity in its earliest stage before it has become visible in the mouth or on x-rays. Fluoride rebuilds the enamel layer of the tooth. When combined with good dental habits of brushing and flossing, fluoride can dramatically reduce cavities and keep your mouth healthy. In addition, fluoride has been proven to reduce sensitivity in teeth.
Why do baby teeth need fillings?
Primary teeth are very important for a child's long-term dental health. Normally, some of the primary teeth remain in the mouth until a child is eleven or twelve. During this time, they serve as space maintainers and ensure that the permanent teeth are properly aligned as they grow into the mouth. Children need strong, healthy teeth to chew their food. Cavities and tooth loss can make it impossible for a child to eat properly, which effects his or her overall level of health. As you can see, primary teeth are critically important for a child's health and development. It's important to keep them in the mouth as long as possible by practicing excellent oral hygiene and treating problems early.
