How to Check Your Dental Insuranceman thinking | dentist edmond ok

Every dental insurance card has a customer support phone number. Give that number a call and ask for your benefits breakdown. Many insurance companies have their own mobile app so that you can see benefits and claims immediately.

Cosmetic Dentistry & Dental Insurance

Most cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, dental implants and veneers are either barely covered, or not covered at all. If you want a healthy beautiful smile, be sure to check with insurance to see how much they will cover.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can usually be prevented by brushing twice per day for two minutes each time, flossing once per day, and seeing your dental care team a minimum of twice per year.  Due to risk factors involving whole body health, some people are at higher risk of periodontal disease and may require more frequent dental visits to maintain a healthy mouth.

Dental sealants are very thin plastic coatings that are placed in the deep groves of the back teeth to help prevent cavities by keeping bacteria out.  They lower the risk of cavities by 50-80% on the teeth they are placed on.  Both adults and children can benefit from sealants.  Sealants are easy and painless to place

There are a variety of problems that can cause tooth sensitivity.  Your tooth sensitivity may be caused by receding gums, a cavity, a crack in the tooth, or acid erosion.  There are many treatments available for sensitivity, but the cause of the problem needs to be identified in order for it to be successfully addressed.  It may be as simple as switching toothpastes, or there may be dental disease that needs professional care.  Dr. Chandler can assess your oral condition and will let you know what the best option is for your situation.

If an approach to dentistry preserves your natural tooth structure and contributes to long-term oral health, we are dedicated to practicing it in our dental office.

Biomimetic dentistry embraces biomimetics. In other words, this approach to dentistry strives to preserve teeth and restore function by building up a tooth as opposed to cutting it down for a synthetic restoration like a crown or a filling.

Biomimetic dentistry concentrates on keeping your teeth healthy through the ages via innovation, advanced techniques, and skill.

Examples of biomimetic dentistry include:

  • Foregoing traditional fillings that can crack in favor of alternatives that help keep your tooth intact—sealing the tooth to prevent bacteria from penetrating.
  • As opposed to cutting down a damaged tooth for the traditional dental crown, the biomimetic approach calls for adhesives and building materials to shore up the compromised tooth.
  • Reliance on biomimetic fillings to preserve a tooth and lower your risks for root infections and root canal treatments.

Dentists who utilize a biomimetic approach to dentistry may serve patients who are less likely to need crowns, fillings, and root canal treatments because the approach concentrates on technologies that preserve the natural tooth and contribute to the longevity of tooth health.  

If you have questions about biomimetic dentistry, or if you would like to schedule an exam, contact our Edmond dental office today.
