I need help my 13 year old son really needs to have braces to correct crooked teeth. Right now as it is I can not afford for him to get the needed braces but I do not have any dental insurance either. So if I could find a dental plan that will make getting him the needed braces more affordable I would be willing to look into it. It would be also good if you can tell me any other ways of going about getting braces at an more affordable cost. I want my son to have good looking teeth since I know he does not like to smile with how they look now.
Dental Care and Correct Brushing Tips. Many people may brush their teeth twice a day but still not get the full benefits of brushing since they are brushing incorrectly. When brushing your teeth you want to make sure you tilt your brush at a 45 degree angle against the gumline.
Sweep or roll the brush away from your gumline. Gently brush the outside and inside of your teeth make sure you brush the chewing surface of each tooth using short back and forth strokes. Also when you finish brushing your teeth gently brush your tongue this will help to remove bacteria and also freshen up your breath.
If you are not sure if you are brushing correctly ask your dentist to show you. This is not a silly question since preventive dental care starts at home.
I am looking for a really low cost dental plan. I just want to be able to have dental insurance for my preventive dental care. I never needed more then a basic dental cleaning since I take excellent care of my teeth.
I would not be even looking for dental insurance except that the dentist I go to is now over two hundred dollars for just preventive dental care. This is not acceptable and I want to reduce my dental cost without all the saving going to the cost of the dental plan.
I have the normally X-rays office visit and basic cleaning twice a year deal. what do you have that can help me save money?
I have not been to the dentist my parents never could afford to take me to one. So they alway made ust brush our teeth three time a day and floss twice. Letting us know from the start that we needed to take care of our teeth because they can not afford to pay for dental bills.
Now that I am eighteen I have a full time job and would like to go to the dentist like everyone else and get a cleaning. However I am a little nervous and would like to know what the dentist does to clean your teeth? Does it hurt?
Hello I am four month pregnant but I am also due for my dental cleaning. It has been a year since the last one. My husband dental plan kicked in for us so I can not see a dentist again. Do I need to wait to have the baby or can I have my teeth cleaned with out having to have the X-rays. Do you know?
I have always gone to the dentist twice a year to get my check up and cleaning. The thing is my dentist use to only charge me $50.00 for a cleaning and $25.00 for X-rays when needed. Now that cost almost three times a much. It seems every time I go to the dental office they are charging me more. I called around thinking it was just them but it seems to be the going rate. I just do not get why having to have dental care is getting so costly and out of control. No wonder why people have bad teeth. They can not afford dental care.
My three year old son when to the dentist for his regural dental check up. He has is first and hopefully last cavity. The dentist said it was very small and does not see the point in doing a filling yet. However he did suggest to get a topical fluoride treatment.
Which under my current dental plan that is free for children under thirteen. However I though having to much fluoride is bad for your teeth. I know they are only baby teeth so maybe that is why he suggest fluoride treatment. I told him I would talk it over with my husband and we would get back to him. Any one know anything about getting a fluoride treatment.
I am new to having to get dental insurance on my own. I turned 20 two months ago and my mom told me that her dental plan will no longer cover me since I am not a full time student. I go to school part time but work full time.
I will have medical insurance with my job in another two months when the enrollment comes up but I am told that they do not offer dental. What type of dental insurance should I be buying for myself? I really only go for my twice a year check up and cleaning. Never had anything major going on with my teeth so far. Can you advise what would be the best plan for me to get?

If your orthodontist is advising you to get them pulled asap, maybe it is because they are currently doing damage to your other teeth (making them crooked) or they will do damage to your teeth.
If you are not 100% clear on why your orthodontist is saying to have them pulled. Then asked them. Getting them out may not make anything faster but will prevent problems with your teeth while you are in braces and after they are removed.
Hope this has helped
I always recommend you to speak to the dentist that is doing the work and ask him/her any questions you may have before and after. Not only does that help you in understanding what is expected from you but helps the dentist in treating you. They normally will give you some type of care instructions that they feel is right for you
I hope this has help you.
