Although insurance companies say the coverage is 100%, their “reasonable and customary” fees may be atypical for the area, based on a contracted provider, or just outdated. If your insurance is out of network and they state there is still 100% coverage for out of network services, your coverage will be based off their own fees and not what is billed by the provider, which will leave you responsible for the difference.
We are a ppo/premier provider for Delta Dental at this time, however we do accept all insurance. A PPO is a provider who is contracted through your insurance company to accept contracted fees. If you choose a provider out of your network, you may be required to pay a higher percentage or all of your accumulated charges.
We warranty our services for 3 years, providing you return for your recommended preventive hygiene appointments. Most fillings will last many years unless there is recurrent decay. Crowns generally can last up to 20 years or more, also providing there are no underlying problems. The most common reason for a crown to come off is decay underneath.
Among the newest technologies is a small laser instrument called the Diagnodent. It scans your teeth with a harmless laser light, searching for hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure. This technology is completely safe and pain free.
Anyone can develop gum disease.
All gum disease destroys bone around the teeth. There are stages of disease progression, from early gingivitis to severe periodontal disease with permanent bone loss. Bone loss causes the teeth to become loose and fall out.
Bleeding, red, tender, swollen, puffy or itchy gums, and gums that peel away from the teeth are signs of disease. Changes in bite or fit of a partial denture, constant bad breath or taste, loose shifting teeth or hot- and cold-sensitive teeth are also signs of gum disease. Genetics do influence the disease.
Deep cleaning of the crowns and roots of teeth is the first step. Change in oral hygiene is essential. Antibiotics or surgery may also be recommended.
