Dental Hazard of Drinking Coffee and Tea – Dental 4 Less

Although one of America’s favorite morning and afternoon beverages may be coffee and tea, they have compounds called tannins, which can cause unsightly stains and discoloring of your teeth. Therefore, to avoid staining your teeth, limit the amount of coffee and tea you drink throughout the day. If you drink coffee and tea, do so with a straw to limit contact with your teeth. Avoid slowly drinking these types of drinks. It can be fun to hang out at the local coffee house and buy one cup of coffee during your hour or more stay, but it could be more fun for your teeth if you don’t baby your drink or at least drink through a straw.

California Dental Teeth Care, Eating After Dental Bonding.

Question: I just got some dental bonding on five teeth. However, I did not ask my dentist if it was okay for me to eat anything or if I needed to wait. If so, how long do I need to wait after having bonding done? I need to know.

Reply: You don’t have to wait to eat or drink after your appointment. However, you may experience slight tooth sensitivity to heat and cold after teeth bonding for a few days afterward. To prevent staining, avoid or keep to a minimum coffee, tea, soy sauce, colas, grape juice, blueberries, fresh cherries, and acidic foods like citrus juices and tomato sauce. You may want to call your dentist, who did the bonding, for any aftercare instructions, which they would typically give you at the time of your appointment.

Dental 4 Less – Insurance and Thinking Ahead

You should think ahead when getting dental insurance.

It may seem surprising that many people do not have dental insurance. However, dental insurance benefits are only sometimes offered through work, so people do without until a significant dental need arises. The problem with waiting until you need dental insurance is that it can be too late to get the type of dental insurance you want. You may need a dental PPO plan to stay with your dentist.

However, most dental PPO plans have long-term waiting periods, so you may not get the coverage you seek when not bought early. If you have a dentist you do not wish to change, find out what dental plans you would need to stay with their dental office. If you are with a dental office that only accepts PPO dental plans, you should consider getting a PPO plan now to have a plan in place for your future dental needs, whether for preventive dental care or major dental care.

Dental 4 Less, Questions to Ask When Picking a Potential New Dentist Part Two

In a prior post we talked about questions to ask a dentist when choosing a new potential dental office. Here are some more questions you may wish to ask and keep in mind.

* How long does it take to get a dental appointment? You may want to say away from dental offices that are so far booked up that making a dental appointment for yourself becomes difficult

* Do they charge for missed or broken dental appointments. If so how much advance notice is required in order not to be charged.

* Does the dentist take continuing education courses and stay up to date with the latest techniques?

* Does the office offer any kind of payment plans? Many dental offices are starting to offer financing plans.

* Will the dentist office file the claims for you or will you have to do it yourself?

* Will the dentist accept your co pay or will you be required to pay the full amount up front and be reimbursed by your dental insurance company later?

Shopping for New Hampshire Dental Insurance Plans for a Family

Shopping for New Hampshire Dental Insurance Plans for a Family:  I have dental insurance benefits offer to me for my family though my employer, however my wife does not really care for the dental plan we have.   She says it really does not offer good dental benefits.

Right now we are paying $109.52 a month for the dental and my job is paying only $25.00 of the cost so changing plans would be okay by me.  I told her I would shop out dental insurance plans and if we can find something along the lines of what we are paying with better coverages we could make the switch.  Can you advise what dental plans you have?

Finding a good dental insurance plan in Florida

Finding a good dental insurance plan in Florida:  Why is it so hard to have a good dental insurance plan?  Does anyone know why it seems that there are no good dental insurance plans?

Both my husband and I have dental insurance with our jobs but the plan are so bad they are really not worth much.   In fact what is really upsetting is that our plan cost has gone up but our coverages went down this year.  I do not see the point in keeping out plans.

Why is dental insurance so horrible?  Dental insurance should not be a  luxury.  Yet every day people and their families get such bad dental benefits that they still can not afford to go to the dentist.

Dental Insurance Coverages, Is there any way around the waiting periods?

I have a PPO that has waiting period for almost every thing.  Since I have the plan now for seven months I only have five more months until I can have major services.  At the time I bought the plan I did not think waiting periods would be an issue and that I would be able to wait them out.   Now I need a crown that will cost about $800.00 After the waiting period the insurance company that I am with will cover 50% of the cost which is still a lot of money.

The thing is I need the crown now and waiting five more months is not a good idea.  My dentist said I really should get the crown now since it will help protect my tooth that I chipped.   Can I just get the crown now and file the claim after the waiting period?  That way at least I will get my $400.00 back in the five months after I file the claim.    I hate having to spend money that my insurance company should pay out for.

Dental Insurance, Business Dental or Group Dental Plans

As a business owner, you are facing many difficult dental insurance plan decisions. One of the decisions is buying a business dental plan. Business dental insurance plans have become essential to businesses due to the increasing benefit needs of the employees, especially when they visit the dentist.

Dental Insurance Coverages, How do I compare dental coverages

Hi I was on your site and I live in California.  I was looking at the Golden West dental plan.  I need help in understanding the coverages.   I know I am going to need a cleaning more then likely a deep cleaning since it has been some time since I last saw a dentist.

I also think filling will be necessary too.  I been having issues with two of my teeth.  They seem to hurt off and on.  Any way when I look at the plan there are a Doz or more filling and I am not sure where to find a deep cleaning.  That is the same for a crown there is like seven different cost for crowns.  How am I to know what one is needed so I can figure out my cost for those services and compare it to your other plans.   Please advise

I have been looking at all your dental insurance plans you have available as well as some dental insurance plans  on other web sites.   My problem is my dentist gave me a treatment plan with ADA codes and I am using it to find insurance that will help me with the cost.  So far there are two codes I can not seem to find on your plans or any other plans I looked at.  Does that mean that services is not covered?  They are the ones that cost the most so a course they be the ones not listed.   Where do I find a plan that covers all dental services?

Dental Insurance, What is a missing tooth clause?

Over the coarse of three years I have lost a few teeth.   I did not have dental insurance and to be frank did not like going to the dentist.   I am now paying the price for having such a bad attitude about dentist and oral hygiene.   I want to start doing what is right and get my teeth fixed up however way necessary.

So I first started looking into getting dental insurance.  Many of the plans I see have long term waiting period for the dental services I am sure to need.  I may be willing to put up with the waiting periods since it was I who let things get so bad.  However a friend told me to beware of missing teeth clause.  She said many dental insurance plans have them so in the end I still will not have coverage to fix my missing teeth.   Is that true?  If so what is a missing tooth clause and would I fall into it?
