Will My Insurance Cover the Full Cost of My Dental Work?
Insurance plans differ from person to person; some dental plans will cover more whereas others will cover hardly any at all. In many cases, insurance plans simply fall short. The best way to find out how much is covered is to consult your plan, or call your provider.
How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?
The simplest answer to this question is “as required.” That is to say, visits to the dentist can be more or less frequent depending on oral or dental issues. If you have no problems, then yearly visits for cleaning and checkups are sufficient. However, if you have a history of dental or health problems, it is a good idea to visit more regularly. Additionally, if you’re currently receiving treatment, regular visits are essential. Your dentist will be able to give you advice that is tailored to your specific situation.
When Should I Bring My Child to the Dentist?
Earlier than you might think! Bringing an infant to a dentist’s office is as much about familiarisation as it is about oral care. Regular appointments at a trusted dental office can help to reinforce a positive impression, and make subsequent visits far easier. Not only this, but even infants can develop minor dental issues; oral exams are important and can help avoid problems down the line.
