Dental Care Tips for People at Different Stages of Life

Every life stage demands its own unique dental care. No matter where you are at in your journey, this collection of age-targeted dental care tips will help you through.

Stage 1: Babies and Infants (0 to 3 years)

They may have few teeth or none at all. Nevertheless, they require the same attention to oral hygiene as adults.

  • If the baby is teething, rub your baby’s gums and give a cold teething ring to chew on.
  • If the first tooth begins to appear, clean the baby’s upper and lower gums and the teeth twice a day with a clean, damp, washcloth.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and water. Toothpaste is not recommended before age 2.

You are about to lose your remaining 2018 dental benefits!

You definitely don’t want to lose your money, especially in today’s tough economy. But that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t use your remaining 2018 dental benefits by December 31.

Since you pay for this benefit, you are entitled to use the full amount each year. Any unused amount will be lost forever. In addition to the financial loss, you could also suffer the unnecessary loss of necessary dental care.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. An inexpensive problem – a chipped or damaged tooth, a broken crown or filling, preventive gum care – could be solved before it becomes an expensive problem. If you need a more complex or extensive procedure – a root canal, new crown, bridge, denture or implant – you can start now and finish the work after December 31 when your new benefit year begins with the full amount! And for those procedures with higher co-pays or treatment fees, our Care Credit program can give you easy access to flexible, no-interest financing and affordable payments for up to 12 months upon credit approval.

One quick phone call can correct this problem.

We value you as our patient and we want you to get the most from your dental care. But there are only a few months left before your current benefits expire. If you need any care, now is the time to put your benefits to use. And all you have to do is call for your year-end benefit review appointment today so we can schedule a time that works best for you.
