At Parker and Pennington Dentistry, we care greatly about our patients as well as the state of their oral health. Nothing upsets us more than when we learn that patients are not receiving oral care due to dental insurance costs or are not receiving quality care due to the limitations and restrictions set forth by the insurance company. Unfortunately, dental insurance companies don’t always have the patient’s best interest in mind and instead will cover treatments that follow a specific guideline, saving them money. These guidelines many times don’t follow a plan that is what is best needed to restore your oral health. This is the reason we categorize ourselves as a non-restricted provider. Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington recently sat down to discuss what this means and how it can be beneficial to your dental health. Click above to watch the video.
At Parker and Pennington Dentistry, we do everything we can to save our patients’ teeth. For teeth that have experienced severe decay or trauma, one way we save teeth is with root canal therapy. Unfortunately, over the years, thanks in part to movies and television, root canal treatment has often been portrayed as a scary or painful procedure. We greatly dislike these insinuations because root canal therapy is the complete opposite. It is a treatment that can eliminate discomfort, and it keeps patients from losing their natural teeth. We want to explain a little more about this treatment so that patients may understand what a help it can be to their oral health.
Has it been some time since you last visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning? If so, we recommend scheduling your next appointment today. We recommend routine exams every six months, with some patients requiring more frequent appointments. During these appointments, we do more than clean the teeth and inspect for decay, we also look for other oral conditions that can greatly affect not only your oral health but your overall health as well. One condition that we inspect for is gum disease. Gum disease affects more than half of American adults and is known as the silent disease because it does not have common warning signs as do other issues such as decay.
One of our goals is to help you keep your natural teeth for your entire life. There are a number of ways that we do this, but the most important is through hygiene examinations and cleanings. When you visit us for routine appointments, we not only clean your teeth thoroughly, but we also inspect for other diseases that can seriously impact your oral health. Do you know which oral disease affects more than half of American adults and is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults? Read on to learn if you guessed correctly.
