Online Dental Insurance, When to Brush Your Teeth.

Monday, Jan. 22nd 2018 6:15 AM

I heard that it is bad to brush your teeth right after you eat is that true?

Answer: According to Dr Peter Alldritt, chairman of the Australian Dental Association’s oral health committee, sometimes brushing too soon can damage your teeth. Fruits, particularly orange or lemon juice, vinegar, sport drinks and soft drinks, have a very high level of acidity in them and they soften your tooth enamel. If you eat or drink these types of foods and then go and brush your teeth straight away you are going to damage the softened tooth enamel. Therefore it is better to wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. By waiting it gives your mouth time to produce enough saliva to neutralize the acidity, according to Dr Alldritt. Saliva helps your teeth to harden and absorb more calcium, which then acts like a coat of armor. Saliva also contains enzymes and buffers which neutralize acid and return the pH of your mouth to neutral over time.

Online Dental Insurance, Broken Tooth

Saturday, Jan. 20th 2018 6:53 AM

I just broke a corner off my back molar. I can not get into see a dentist until a week from now. What can I do until I see the dentist?

Answer: Until your dentist appointment you want to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth. If the tooth is giving you discomfort take some ibuprofen or try and use some orajel to numb the area. I would also see if the dentist can take you in sooner. You may want to call the dental office and let them know if they have any cancellations sooner you would like to come in.

Online Dental Insurance, Dental Caries

Monday, Jan. 8th 2018 7:00 AM

Young children can get a type of tooth decay called baby bottle tooth decay or early childhood caries. Caries destroys enamel quickly. This type of decay is common in children who are put to sleep with a bottle of milk or juice. The bottle exposes the teeth constantly to carbohydrates through the night. Bacteria can grow rapidly and produce acid that decays teeth. Decay can become worse if the parent does not clean the child’s teeth. It can eat through enamel and leave a large cavity in a matter of months.

Online Dental Insurance, What is Dental Plaque Plaque

Saturday, Dec. 30th 2017 8:49 AM

Plaque is a soft, gooey substance that sticks to the teeth. Plaque is a type of biofilm. It contains large numbers of closely packed bacteria, components taken from saliva, and bits of food. Also in the mix are bacterial byproducts and white blood cells. Plaque grows when bacteria attach to the tooth and begin to multiply. Plaque starts forming right after a tooth is cleaned. Within an hour, there is enough to measure. As time goes on, the plaque thickens. Within two to six hours, the plaque teems with bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease.

Thursday, Dec. 28th 2017 8:48 AM

Your mouth and teeth are constantly bathed in your saliva. We may never give much thought to our saliva, but this fluid is remarkable for what it does to help protect our oral health. Saliva keeps teeth and other parts of your mouth moist and washes away bits of food. Saliva contains minerals that strengthen teeth. It includes buffering agents. They reduce the levels of acid that can decay teeth. Saliva also protects against some viruses and bacteria.

Online Dental Insurance, PPO Dental Plans Balance Billing

Monday, Dec. 18th 2017 6:45 AM

Balance billing is when a dental office bills an enrollee for the amounts above the PPO payment and the enrollee’s coinsurance, If the dentist is within the PPO plan network of providers balance billing would generally be a violation of their contract with the PPO provider since the dentist within the PPO network agree to accept the PPO provider contracted fees and not the bill above that amount. However it is important to note with most PPO plans you are able to go to dentist that are not in the plan network. Therefore if you choice to go to a Non-contracted dentist (out of network provider) they are under no such obligation to limit the amount of their fees.
