What condition is your mouth in? We hope it’s 100 percent healthy! But if you’re like most people, you’ll probably suffer from at least one dental condition at some point in your life. Dental conditions cover a wide range of mouth problems, from cavities to gum disease to jaw abnormalities. Some dental conditions are preventable, some aren’t. But the more you know about dental conditions, the better chances you have of preventing them — or at the very least, correcting them early.

With so many types of dental conditions that can affect your life, it’s natural that you’d want to know more. If you suffer from tooth decay, gingivitis or any other dental condition, we can help you understand your symptoms and explore your treatment options. No matter what type of dental condition you’re curious about, we have the information you need to help you maintain a healthy smile.

Keep in mind that if you think you have a dental condition, it’s important not to self-diagnose. Only a dentist can determine what type of dental condition you have — and only a dentist can give you the right dental treatments! If you’re prone to putting off treatment, remember: Without treatment, dental conditions can become a painful problem. Dental conditions happen to the best of us, so click on the appropriate link to learn more about what’s plaguing your mouth. Staying informed can help put you on the right track to optimal dental health!

Here at Soft Touch Dental, we work hard every day to earn your trust. From the moment you walk into our Florissant dentistry practice, you will feel like a part of our family.

It’s easy to stain teeth. Coffee, tea, tobacco, and others can leave ugly marks. Fortunately, it’s a simple process to lighten them up.

It is estimated that 80% of adult Americans have a fear of the dentist. Though this fear decreases a little every year, it is still prevalent in 2013. The question people, dentists included, should concern themselves with is not whether they still have some fear about going to the dentist, but why aren’t at least 50% of Americans having aregular dental exam every six months?

Not having enough time and money are probably reasons one and two for not going to the dentist. Time was, is and will always be money; that is both the beauty and the beast of capitalism. The best way to address this particular issue is to imagine what will happen if after twenty years of not going to the dentist a sudden and very sharp pain overtakes the senses.

At this point all that can be done is an emergency dental visit, which will be expensive with both time and money. A regular checkup may have foretold of the impending pain. Lastly, in regards to time and money, many employers have or will be forced to have medical insurance by 2014; if one has dental coverage as part as their health coverage it is better to be checked out sooner rather than later.

Don’t let lack of dental insurance prevent you from a visit. We offer new patient specials and, work with patients that are without insurance. It’s estimated that over half the patients seeing a dentist regularly do not have insurance.

There is a prevailing thought out in the world that dentists are expensive. There is also a relatively new type of currency that is starting to take traction, a bitcoin. A Bitcoin is considered a cryptocurrency. If you don’t know what a bitcoin is or what cryptocurrency is, that’s ok, hardly anyone does.

A bitcoin is just a different way to pay for something. A bitcoin’s value fluctuates, kind of like a stock. It is the rising popularity of bitcoins that begs the question; is there another way to pay for something that folks consider expensive, like dentistry?

Yes, and no. As of yet I have not found a dentist that accepts bitcoins. However, many dental offices are more than willing to help their patients come up with the best payment plan that will work for tem.  Some dentists offer in-office financing, some offer financing through a third party vendor.

Like any financing, the interest rate you will end up paying depends of your credit. However, most dentists are aware our economy is still in rough shape and will be willing to work with those with bruised credit.   The thing you as the patient need to decide: Is the interest rate you will be paying worth the health benefits a major dental procedure will afford you.

Obviously if you want to do some financing to get diamond incrusted teeth, maybe you should rethink that. Financing for a root canal, implant or other device that will help you enjoy eating healthier, better, and in less pain, may well be worth the finance charge.

Of course there is dental insurance, but that may be as hard to get as health insurance through Healthcare.gov. And, keep in mind anytime you can pay cash directly, you will pay less.  But, also keep in mind; taking care of your teeth is not like a kitchen renovation on a kitchen that still works. Without proper dental care your health will suffer.

So, call your neighborhood dentist and make an appointment to come in and talk to them about finally getting that filling, crown, implant or root canal. The worst-case scenario is that the financing may not be available. The best-case scenario is that you can work out a payment plan with your dentist and finally have the dental care you deserve.

When it comes to dental health in the workplace, men win the battle of the sexes.

Survey data show that more men practice good dental habits while at work than women. Two in five men either brush or floss their teeth after eating lunch or a snack at work.

Women, on the other hand, find the practice impolite or inappropriate.

Interestingly, nearly 90% of both men and women agree that there is a strong connection between overall health and dental hygiene.
