Questions & Answers
Q: What are dental sealants & are they safe?
A: Dental Sealants, usually recommended when children first get their adult teeth, are a protective coating that is painted over the teeth and into the grooves. Sealants are immensely beneficial in the fight against cavities & tooth decay. The current concern is that some sealants contain BPA (Bisphenol A) because they are a plastic base. This is a valid concern as some older dental sealants may contain this compound, however newer sealants are resin based and do not contain BPA. It is important to ask your dental provider if the products they are using contain BPA & to limit your exposure and your child’s exposure. Sealants are a wonderful tool for prevention & creation of beautiful smiles for life!
Q: How can I make the most of my insurance benefits?
A: There are a number of dental plans available, some of which are very good and others which are very poor. The best way to maximize your insurance is to know your dental plan. An insurance plan is a contract between an insurance company and you, the patient. Therefore, it is important for the patient to understand the aspects of their individual plan and be proactive in dealing with their insurance provider. Ask your insurance company how often your plan will cover dental cleanings & check-ups and if there are financial maximums. This will help you plan how best to utilize the funds. Be cautious not to let your insurance plan dictate the treatment you receive. Quality always pays off in the long run! If you do not carry dental insurance, there are a number of options available to help you get the dentistry you deserve!
