Reminder: Use Your Dental Benefits Before They Expire!

October 13, 2020

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — roselleparkdental @ 7:08 pm

Can you believe that there is less than three months left until 2020 is over??? Have you been paying for dental insurance all year? Then now is the time to schedule an appointment to visit us and use your remaining benefits before you lose them! Here are some tips on how to get the most out of the money you have already paid towards your dental benefits:

Have You Maximized Your Dental Benefits? Most insurance providers cover two dental cleanings every year. Having your teeth professionally cleaned and inspected by a dentist regularly is very important for your oral health. Since you have already paid for it, make sure to come in for a checkup before 2021.

How to Find Out What is Left in Your FSA? If you have been contributing to a flexible spending account (FSA) all year, now is the time to call the number on your FSA card to find out what your balance is. Since FSA funds will most likely not roll over to 2021, you must use that money before December 31, 2020. Do not let your money go to waste! FSA funds can be used at our office for any medical dental procedure – from cleanings, to cavity fillings, or even getting started on more complicated dental work.

What Are The Top Dental Benefits to Know? You’re probably paying a monthly premium to keep your insurance, so be sure to use it before the year ends! We can help you maximize the dental care you are still eligible to receive based on your coverage. But don’t wait to schedule an appointment – we fill up fast at the end of the year.

Call now and beat the holiday rush: 908-998-4698! For information on all the services we provide, please visit our website: www.roselleparkdental.com.

Design Your Dental Plan for 2020!

January 28, 2020

Specially written for Roselle Park Dental & Implants by Sara Magnola Taner

Can you believe that most of January is already behind us?! Now is the time to figure out your family’s dental plan for the year and budget accordingly. To help you tackle this daunting task, start by asking yourself a few questions: What dental work should you have done? If you have dental insurance, how much of the work will be covered? If you do not have insurance, will you be able to afford necessary dental procedures? We have put together a guide to help you simplify the process of answering these questions and design your family’s dental plan for 2020.

What Dental Work Do You Need? The answer to this first question is also the first action item on your family’s dental plan: schedule a dental checkup for every member of your family who is over the age of two. Twice annual checkups are the best way to proactively take care of your family’s oral health. During your visits, the hygienist and dentist will provide a thorough cleaning and examination of your entire mouth, teeth, and gums. They will make recommendations on any additional procedures that should be done, such as removing cavities, repairing cracked fillings, adding orthodontics, or fixing missing or damaged teeth. 

How Much of the Associated Costs Will be Covered by Insurance? Once you know what dental work is recommend for your family, you should check with your dental insurance provider to find out what your coverage will include. More than three quarters of Americans have dental insurance or benefits according to the National Association of Dental Plans. Coverage varies greatly from one provider and plan to the next. In general, most cover the recommended twice annual dental checkups, though the timing can vary: some require the visits be spaced by six or more months, while others just require it be within a calendar year. Many providers follow the 100-80-50 coverage structure: covering 100% of preventative care, 80% of basic procedures, and 50% of major procedures. Most plans also have a cap, or annual maximum, above which you become responsible to pay all expenses. The best thing to do is to call your insurance provider and ask what portion of a recommended procedure will be covered.

Will I Be Able to Afford the Dental Care My Family Needs Without Insurance? For those that do not have dental insurance – don’t worry! We have got you covered with our In Office Dental Savings Plan, which is designed to provide affordability and greater access to quality dental care.

As we begin a new year and a new decade, why not make a resolution to do something that will improve your overall health and well-being, while also transforming your appearance? Make 2020 the year you resolve to smile more!

Countless studies have proven that the act of smiling – whether it’s an unconscious reaction or a conscious decision to do so – has a plethora of benefits. Smiling frequently makes us appear to be more attractive, younger, and more confident.

Additionally, smiling can make us feel better too. When we smile, it relaxes our bodies and releases feel-good neurotransmitters, which then lowers our stress levels and improves our mood. It can even boost our immune system and lower blood pressure. 

Need yet another reason to start smiling more? Not only can it help you to look and feel better, but it will do the same for those around you.  Smiling really is contagious, so smiling at others will create a “domino” effect of people looking and feeling their best! 

For a limited time only, we are offering an amazing deal to help you achieve your very best smile. Come in for a Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) or a Dental Implant Consultation and get a FREE smile simulation. (Regular value: $500)

Visit us online or call now: 855-983-7083 to take advantage of this great offer!

*This promotion cannot be redeemed for other dental products or services. Limited time offer. Valid through 3/19/20. Appointment must be booked/or patient seen before 3/19/20 in order to qualify.

End of the Year Insurance Reminder – Less than Two Months Left!

November 4, 2019

As a friendly reminder, if you have dental work you’ve put on hold, now is a good time to schedule an appointment to maximize your insurance benefits.

Even if you don’t need extensive treatment, you should schedule a regular checkup and cleaning appointment to help prevent costly procedures in the future.

You’re probably paying a monthly premium to keep your insurance, so be sure to use it before the year end!

It is also a great time to use any remaining flexible account dollars you may have saved up. Flexible accounts are created to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical and dental expenses, but if that money is not used before the end of the year, it is lost to you forever.

Our holiday season does book quickly, so call us today at (908) 998-4698 or visit roselleparkdental.com to schedule your appointment. If you have any questions about your insurance coverage or benefits, we would be happy to help you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Happy National Dental Hygiene Month

October 22, 2019

Three of our amazing dental hygienists: Bonnie, Sanchia, and Anne Maira. (Pictured from left to right.)

Written for Roselle Park Dental & Implants by Sara Magnola Taner

This October, celebrate national dental hygiene month by thanking your dental hygienist and taking great care of your teeth!

Good dental hygiene is of the utmost importance to your oral and overall health, and visiting your dentist and hygienist twice a year for professional cleanings and checkups is one of the best ways you can ensure your healthy smile will last for a lifetime!

This year, the American Dental Association (ADA) is focusing on four routines to help people maintain healthy smiles: brush, floss, rinse, and chew!

  1. Do You Know the “Correct” Way to Brush Your Teeth? Proper brushing technique is to hold the tooth brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and gently move it back and forth, making sure to clean both the inside and outside of your teeth. Make sure to use a soft bristle brush that fits easily around your teeth and replace it every two to three months.
  2. To Floss or Not to Floss – Despite recent media surrounding the effectiveness of regular flossing, dental professionals still advise that we floss every day to keep our teeth and gums their healthiest! In addition to preventing gum disease and tooth decay, it provides a regular opportunity to closely exam inside the mouth for redness, swelling, or chipped or broken teeth.
  3. #DoTheSwish – We all know that using mouthwash is a great way to freshen our breath, but did you know it also helps to prevent tooth decay and gingivitis? When used before brushing and flossing, it can help to remove additional food particles that could otherwise become cavity causing plaque build-up.
  4.  Choose What You Chew Wisely –Enjoying sugar-free gum can have several benefits for your oral health in most instances. The physical act of chewing causes the body to increase salvia production, which then helps to wash away food particles after a meal or snack.  Additionally, most sugar-free gum is sweetened with xylitol, a naturally occurring alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables. Xylitol is proven to inhibit the growth of a bacteria that causes cavities.

This year for the very first time The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) has partnered with Walgreens and Listerine to raise awareness for national dental hygiene month. Search for a participating Walgreens near you and #DoTheSwish for a chance to win!

Tuesday Tip: Go Back to School with a Healthy Smile!

August 27, 2019

Here are three back-to-school tips to help your little ones maintain great oral health throughout the school year: 

  1. Visit Your Dentist: Schedule your child’s dental cleaning now before the hustle and bustle of school starts in September. 
  2. Choose Healthy Snacks: Instead of packing your little ones processed snacks or sweets, fill their lunchboxes with fresh fruits and veggies, along with some protein, such as sunflower seeds and cheese.
  3. Build Brushing and Flossing into the Daily Routine: Back to school means a new – often busy –schedule. Kids should brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day and floss each night before bed. Make sure they have enough time before heading out the door each morning, and floss as a family at night. 

Call us today to schedule your child’s back-to-school dental cleaning and checkup: 908-998-4698!

Fluoride Supplements: Should Your Child Be Taking Them?

August 15, 2019

We all know that fluoride is an important part of caring for our children’s teeth. But how much do they need? And how do we know how much they are actually getting? Read on to get answers to all your fluoride questions.

What is Fluoride and How Does it Get into the Water?

Fluoride is derived from fluorine, which is a naturally occurring element in the Earth’s crust. Years of study have shown that consuming fluoride – and applying it to the surface of the teeth – helps to protect teeth from decay.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that over 60% of people living in the United States get fluoride through their tap water. In some instances, the fluoride is added to the water source and in others it is naturally occurring. The optimal level of fluoridation in water is 0.7 milligrams per liter.  Call your local water authority or public health department to inquire about your fluoride levels.

If you and your family drink mostly bottled water or water from a reverse osmosis filtration system, then you are probably not consuming any – or only very little – fluoride. Most bottled water has none, and the filtration systems remove most of the fluoride from tap water.  Water filters such as Brita or PUR pitchers do not remove fluoride.

Why Does Fluoride Matter for Our Dental Health?

Fluoride protects teeth in two ways.  When it is ingested, it strengthens the tooth’s structure.  When it is applied to the surface of teeth – via toothpaste, mouth rinse, or a fluoride treatment – it creates a barrier that prevents bacteria found in plaque from breaking down tooth enamel, which over time will lead to decay and cavities.  

According to the CDC: “For 70 years, people in the United States have benefited from drinking water with fluoride, leading to better dental health. Drinking fluoridated water keeps teeth strong and reduces cavities by about 25% in children and adults.”

Does Your Child Need a Fluoride Supplement?

To answer this question, you must first determine the age of your child and if they are consuming fluoridated water or not. Babies under the age of six months old do not need any fluoride supplementation. Only if your water supply is not fluoridated would your dentist or pediatrician prescribe a fluoride supplement – such as a vitamin, tablet or drops – for your child after the age of six months.

While it is important to start brushing baby teeth as soon as they start coming in, using a fluoride free training toothpaste for the first few years of a child’s life is recommended to prevent them from ingesting too much. Once a child has mastered the ability to spit while brushing, switch to a fluoride toothpaste, but still only use a pea-sized amount on their brush. An adult should always be present while young children are brushing with paste containing fluoride, since too much fluoride can be harmful for children.
