Understanding Pre-Estimates

November 8, 2021.Individuals

When considering any dental procedure, don’t overlook a pre-estimate. It’s simply a resource to provide you with a cost estimate prior to receiving treatment. Keep in mind, a pre-estimate is not an absolute guarantee, but rather a best estimate. Asking for an estimate before you undergo a dental procedure gives you the power to know costs involved before you commit and avoid any surprise bills. What is a pre-estimate?

The pre-estimate takes several factors into account, including your dental plan benefits, annual maximum and any deductible amounts.

5 Healthy Halloween Tips

October 8, 2021.Individuals.#candy

Boo! Don’t be spooked by the thought of sugar harming your child’s teeth this Halloween. While the holiday is known for indulging in sweet treats, there’s ways to enjoy candy without risking your smile. Here are our top five tips for tooth-friendly trick or treating: 1.

Hard candies can be particularly tough on teeth, so remind your child to avoid biting if they indulge in this type of treat.

Sour candies are usually very acidic, which can damage tooth enamel, increasing the risk of cavities. 2. Opt for tooth-friendly alternatives Letting kids enjoy themselves while finding a compromise can […]

Want to get a clear picture of your oral health? Dental X-rays are a valuable option! They’re a common diagnostic tool used by dentists to capture an accurate image of the mouth – including teeth and gums. Dental X-rays, also referred to as radiographs, use low doses of radiation to help your dentist identify oral health issues early on, which can help avoid more complex health issues and costly treatments in the future. Types of X-rays There are two main types of dental X-rays: Intraoral X-rays place X-ray film inside the mouth and are the most common type of X-ray. That’s because they allow dentists to find cavities, check the health of teeth roots, bone surrounding teeth and the status of developing teeth. Extraoral X-rays are taken with the X-ray film outside of the mouth. This type focuses on the larger view of your jaw and skull. Common dental X-rays: […]
