We accept hundreds of dental insurance plans – so we likely accept yours – but call us to double check. Here are just some of the ones we accept:
We are not Crazy: You may have a hard time accepting this, and we run the risk of being labeled as crazy conspiracy theorists wearing tin foil hats by telling you this, but here goes anyway.
Everyone wants to feel ‘minty fresh’ – though few could explain what those words really mean from an objective health standpoint. ‘Minty fresh’ is a phrase that describes little more than a sensation – an illusion provided by certain ingredients in toothpaste whose only function is to help you believe that something good just happened. In actual fact, some ‘minty fresh’ products actually contribute to causing more problems than they supposedly cure. In any event, feeling minty fresh certainly doesn’t mean you that have a clean mouth.
Bacteria Largely Unaffected: Bacteria, which are the primary cause of most oral disease, including bad breath, are largely unfazed by the effects of the $1.8 billion dollars’ worth of oral products sold to us purportedly to deliver that ‘minty fresh’ feeling. Fact is, true oral health and good breath comes from products and practices that minimize the numbers of acid producing bacteria in your mouth, and the colonies called plaque that they live in.
And here’s one more thing that you probably didn’t know: the most embarrassing and socially stigmatizing problem that one can have – namely bad breath – is really just those same bacteria releasing those gasses in your mouth as waste products. Therefore, most bad breath is literally just bacterial ‘farts’ in your mouth.
Finally, by examining your breath we also get a hint of potentially bigger issues that might be developing inside your body systemically. All in all, breath analysis is just a great piece of analytical technology, and one which many say will replace blood testing as the go-to diagnostic tool of the future. In fact, it’s already being used to screen for breast cancer, lung cancer, kidney disease, and diabetes at the Mayo Clinic and other prestigious medical facilities around the country.
