Dental Insurance Kids: Is it Possible To Overbrush Your Teeth?

Monday, May. 6th 2024 4:03 PM

Yes, it is possible to overbrush your teeth. Brushing your teeth too vigorously or for too long can lead to damage to your gums, tooth enamel, and even tooth sensitivity. Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle circular motions is recommended. If you need clarification about your brushing technique or have any concerns about your dental health, it is always best to consult your dentist.

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued an opinion that upholds the Affordable Health Care Act

Thursday, Jun. 28th 2012 11:24 AM

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued an opinion that upholds the Affordable Health Care Act

This includes the individual mandate for coverage.  The case challenged the constitutionality of several parts of the law, including the rule that most people in the U.S. must get health coverage.   We will continue to carry out provisions of the law by thoughtfully implementing the new requirements for customers and members. We will also continue to look for ways to address increasing costs that are crippling our health care system, including: ·      Advancing our partnership with primary care physicians announced earlier this year that we believe will substantially improve quality and member health, and potentially reduce the trend in overall medical costs by as much as 20% by 2015. ·      Coordinating patient care through the use of IBM-Watson technology to promote evidence-based health care and ensure that millions of Americans receive the most effective courses of treatment.  We look forward to continuing our efforts to work with policymakers and other key stakeholders to build a health care delivery system that provides security and affordability to all Americans.

Kids dental care, Braces and Insurance how much would be my saving

Tuesday, Nov. 9th 2010 7:46 AM

I have been advise that my 13 year old daughter needs to have braces.   So I went to an orthodontic dental office that my family dentist suggested and got a free consult.  Right now since my current dental insurance plan does not cover braces I am looking something like $5200.00 for the cost of her braces.

Now they will offer me a payment plan since she will be in braces for a few years.   What I would like to know is if I get dental insurance and wait out any waiting periods would it be worth getting?  How much would be my saving based on the quote I am getting for braces.  And if you can suggest any plan that will be better for me to get that would be good too.

Kids dental care, Wisdom teeth extractions

Wednesday, Oct. 13th 2010 8:34 AM

My son needs to have his wisdom teeth pulled.  I would like to have all four taken out but if nothing else at least the two that  are currently causing him problems.   I have a cheap dental insurance plan that I get though my job.  However, I just found out it does not cover for a tooth to be pulled if a oral surgeon has to pull the teeth.

This is a joke who else is going to pull a wisdom tooth out ?  I called around a few oral surgeons to get an idea of cost and for just two teeth to be pulled it will cost me around  $1200 – $15000.    I am in price shock and do not know what to do.

Kids dental care, Wisdom teeth removal

Wednesday, Jul. 28th 2010 8:08 AM

My daughter is 15 and I was told by her dentist that I may want to think about having her wisdom teeth removed.  They are showing up in the x-rays but are not to the point that they are yet to come out.  Her teeth are perfect right now.

The dentist said there is a chance that the wisdom’s teeth will start to push her other teeth out of alignment.   What is the chance they will do this?  The dentist tells me I have time to  make up my mind but at the same time he said it better to do it sooner then later.

Would love to hear other advise.  Do you always have to pull out teeth that have not even broken though the gum line yet

Kids dental care, Crooked baby teeth

Sunday, Jul. 25th 2010 9:29 AM

My son baby teeth are coming in.  He has already seen the dentist about four month ago and everything was fine.  It just more teeth have come out and they do not seem straight to me.  Is this normal?  Or should I take him back to the dentist.   I do not want him to have crooked adult teeth and worried if his baby teeth are crooked will that cause issues to the adult teeth when they start to come in?

Kids dental care, How do I find out the correct ADA code

Thursday, Jul. 22nd 2010 9:20 AM

My son needs to have two fillings.   So I thought at this point since the dentist wants to charge me over 250.00 for just two filing I would shop out getting him some dental insurance.   However I have found out that there is more then just one  price for a filling.

In order for me to know the true cost I am told that I would need to know the ADA code for the fillings my son needs.  Where would I get that from?  Someone most know them since two different dental company told me they could not quote a price without knowing the ADA code for the dental services.  Please advise I do not want to buy anything without knowing what I getting from it.
