New Braces Causing my Daughter Dental Pain.

New braces are causing my daughter dental pain. My daughter just got braces on, and she is saying she is in a great deal of pain and unsure what to do for her. I gave her Advil, but it is not helping her that much. Any good advice, please?

Reply: Braces can cause pain when you get them, as it takes a while to adjust. In most cases, Advil should help. You may want to talk to her orthodontic dentist to see what they can suggest

Obesity and Dental Health – Dental Insurance Kids

Tuesday, Sep. 19th 2023 6:52 AM

Study on How Obesity can Contribute to Poor Oral Health. 

Links have been found that Obesity can affect your oral. A recent study revealed that the more profound the periodontal pockets, the higher the proportion of subjects with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or over. According to the World Health Organization, a figure is generally considered obese. In 2008, 1.5 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight. Periodontal pockets are essentially food and plaque traps that irritate and decay teeth to the point where the tooth can eventually fall out if not treated by a dentist. The deeper the pocket, the greater the risk of tooth loss. Proper dental care and seeing your dentist can help prevent tooth loss due to periodontal pockets and gum disease. Having good oral healthcare and taking care of your overall health makes sense. On this website, we can help you save money on your dental care with one of our dental insurance or dental plans.

Dental Insurance Kids – Dental Implants.

Wednesday, Sep. 13th 2023 6:56 AM

Before Getting Dental Implants: Gene Combination Identified As Risk Factor In Success Of Dental Implants. The health of your surrounding tissue and gums affects the success of a dental implant. Therefore identifying and reducing the risk factors is a critical step in the implant process. Now a combination of genes has been identified as a possible indicator of more significant tissue destruction leading to adverse outcomes for implants. An article in the Journal of Oral Implantology reports a study of individuals with the combination of interleukin (IL)-1 allele 2 at IL-1A-889 and IL-1B+3954. These people are “genotype positive” and are susceptible to increased periodontal tissue destruction.

Dental Care for Kids

Monday, Sep. 11th 2023 12:39 PM

Dental care for kids, I Need a New Dentist for My Son.

I have an HMO dental plan currently. Both my husband and I go to this one dental office in our dental plan. My son is two, so it is a good time to make a dental appointment. I just learned that our dental office does not help two years old.

He will not see my son until he is five. That is too long to have him wait. I do not dislike that office, so I want to have the same providers. Can my son have his dentist, and we keep seeing the one we want to?

Reply: You should be able to call your HMO insurance plan member services and have they refer you to a plan Pediatric dentist. Most dental HMOs will let you have a different dentist as long as they are plan providers. Take to member services to confirm this.

Poor Dental Health Care – Dental Insurance Kids

Saturday, Sep. 9th 2023 6:23 AM

Poor Dental and Oral Healthcare can Lead to Sexual Problems.

Sexual problems are another reason why preventive dental care is essential. A study reveals erectile dysfunction linked to gum disease. The research1, carried out on 70 male subjects, showed a correlation between gum disease and the ability to achieve an erection. The data indicates that as the severity of erectile dysfunction increased, the prevalence of chronic periodontitis (gum disease) increased. More than four out of five men (81.8 percent) with severe erectile dysfunction had gum disease. In comparison, in cases of mild erectile dysfunction, the incidence of gum disease was less than two in five men. Seeing a dentist regularly and taking care of your dental and oral hygiene is always important, but another reason may make you go to your next dental appointment. Help keep your dental cost low by having dental insurance or a dental plan. We can help you with that.

Dental Insurance Kids – Healthcare

Thursday, Sep. 7th 2023 12:13 PM

How Cavity-Causing Microbes can Invade your Heart

Scientists have discovered that bacteria, typically found in our mouths, is a tool that can be used to invade heart tissue, causing a dangerous and sometimes lethal infection of the heart known as endocarditis. S. mutans is a bacterium best known for causing cavities. Normally, S. mutans confine themselves to the mouth, but the bacteria can enter the bloodstream sometimes after a dental procedure or even after vigorous flossing. Our immune system usually destroys them, but occasionally – within just a few seconds – they travel to the heart and colonize its tissue, especially heart valves. The bacteria can cause endocarditis – inflammation of heart valves – which can be deadly. Infection by S. mutans is a leading cause of the condition. The study raises the possibility of creating a screening tool – perhaps a cheek swab or a spit test to gauge a dental patient’s vulnerability to the condition.

Dental care for kids, Four baby teeth extractions.

My son has to have four of his baby teeth pulled. His adult teeth do not have room since the baby teeth will not come out. Well, I made an appointment for him to do this dental work. I would like to know if my son will be in much pain afterward.

He will be asleep while his teeth are pulled but will he be in pain when he wakes up? Should I only feed him soft foods? Any additional information you may have would be good.

Reply: Pain and very from person to person. If your son handles pain well, he will be able to deal better with having his teeth pulled.

Just have soft food on hand for a few days while he is healing, and expect some pain. The dentist will go over the aftercare for your son, so if you have additional questions, ask the dentist. Also, the dentist may even give you something for the pain if needed.

Rotten Baby Teeth – Dental Insurance Kids

Tuesday, Aug. 29th 2023 6:51 AM

My niece has some rotten baby teeth. Her breath is awful too. She is going to the dentist to have them pulled, but she is only seven, so it seems too soon to be pulling out teeth. Can you give helpful advice to ensure the rest of her teeth do not have to be removed? I feel it is a lack of proper care, but I can not come out and say that.

Reply: Trying to give advice when not asked for can leave you in trouble. If your family member is coming to you for advice, suggest they talk to the dentist about dental sealants. Dental sealants will help to prevent decay. Just because you may think it is a lack of dental care, it could be that their child has bad or no tooth enamel.

Dental Insurance Kids – Lower Cost for Family Dental Care. 

Monday, Aug. 21st 2023 6:02 AM

California Dental, Kids’ Dental Care Needed.

I have three kids, and I need to be able to take them to an affordable dentist. I do not have money to take three kids to the dentist at $200.00 each. And that is just for the basic visit, X-rays, and cleaning. There would only be a way to address those issues if they needed something more.

I am trying to figure out what to do. My kids do not have any teeth issues right now, and I ensure they are brushing their teeth as they should, but I feel bad that I can not afford to get them the proper dental care.

Reply: It sounds like you may not have dental insurance in place for your family. Review dental HMO insurance plan options. They are the more affordable insurance plan running around $20.00 – 45.00 a month for a family plan. Most HMO insurance plans offer free preventive care, which saves $200.00 on each child based on the amount you stated you are currently paying. That is a $600.00 saving, well worth the monthly cost for an HMO dental insurance plan.

Poor Tooth Enamel – Kids Dental Insurance

Sunday, Aug. 20th 2023 6:48 AM

Kid’s Teeth and Dental Care, Poor Tooth Enamel

I am looking for some good advice from anyone that may have suggestions. My son has terrible teeth enamel on his baby teeth. He is seven and has already had five fillings done. His dental care is getting to be very costly. Even though I have dental insurance for him, it does not pay out that much, and I have to pay the difference.

Does anyone know how to slow him down from getting cavities? As it is now, he is brushing three times a day and using toothpaste that is supposed to help tooth enamel, but it is not slowing down this issue.  

Reply: Have you spoken to your child’s dentist about dental sealants for your son’s teeth? Dental sealants help protect your teeth when you have poor tooth enamel.

Also good to have done if your child has poor brushing habits. However, ask your dentist about this as an option.
