Dr. Weber was my dentist,he was very professional along with the whole staff.Each chair has its own t.v.to make you comfortable.A great group & there Cardinal fans to. GO CARDS Thanks Ed S.
Dental plaque is a biofilm, usually a pale yellow that develops naturally on the teeth. Like any biofilm, dental plaque is formed by colonizing bacteria . . . It has been speculated that plaque forms part of the defense systems of the host by helping to prevent colonization of microorganisms that may be pathogenic.
It is not a huge leap to compare plaque to the Great Wall of China. The building of plaque never ceases and the Great Wall took centuries to build and it’s still not complete. The Great Wall was built to keep attackers out while at the same time keeping people in. The Great Wall of China can be seen from space; if you have a lot of plaque build-up, it can be seen pretty easily, too.
If we heed only Wikipedia’s definition above, one might wonder what is so bad about plaque. The above definition is only a partial one and there are many more resources available online or at your local dental office that will point out the drawbacks of plaque. While building up its defenses the same material that protects erodes the enamel of the teeth. Of course the erosion does not take place over night. And, neither will the “take down.”
Like the Great Wall, plaque is very formidable. Both will never be totally deconstructed however, the Great Wall is maintained and cleaned for its millions of visitors. Plaque helps protect against billions of visitors, too (microorganisms). However, if you do not keep the plaque at bay (it occurs naturally, and can not be cleaned 100% away) it will destroy your teeth.
So, get into see your dentist, help them help you control plaque. Ask your dentist if the recommended twice-yearly cleaning is all you need, or, if there are other issues to deal with like periodontal disease or gingivitis. Remember your dentist is the expert and they love helping people get the oral care they should have; it’s what they do!
Now is the time to plan for the completion of your dental treatment before the end of the year. All insurance plans have a yearly maximum. If you do not use this maximum amount, the benefits are lost forever.
If you have treatment to be completed or to be started, take advantage of your benefits this year. We can use the maximum allowed for this year to begin or complete any treatment that needs to be done. If we do not complete all of the treatment, then we can start with a new maximum next year.
Good planning will allow you to take advantage of the full benefits of your policy. Please do not wait until the last few days of the year when our congested schedule will make it difficult to appoint a convenient time for you.
Our goal is to provide you with quality dental service. If we can help you maximize your dental insurance coverage in the process, we know you will be very pleased. In addition, we have a financial partner who can help you with any portion of your treatment that insurance does not cover.
