Dental Shop Staff Writer | January 19, 2017

There is a major connection between good oral health and overall good health, and it is well documented. When the legislatures left dental coverage off the list of essential health benefits it sent the wrong message about the important of good oral health.

Dental Implant FAQ

Dental Shop Staff Writer | January 8, 2016

What is a Dental Implant? Implants take many shapes and sizes depending on the patient’s needs. Most are made of titanium, a very hard and durable metal. This metal has been shown to be 100% compatible with the human body. Dental Implants are not transplants taken from another human. Therefore there are no problems with the rejection reactions associated with transplants such as lungs, or kidneys. In fact, there has never been a case reported in the scientific literature where the body has rejected the materials that are used in today’s advanced Dental Implants. Since they are made of metal and undergo rigorous sterilization procedures approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, there is absolutely no possibility of disease transmission.

How do no waiting dental insurance plans work?

Dental Shop Staff Writer | March 25, 2015

Many dental insurance plans now have "waiting periods", which is the time required before certain benefits may be available to a consumer. Many people believe that all services are covered as soon as their plan goes into effect, and this can cause a lot of problems for people. Waiting periods are established by the dental insurance companies to protect themselves from individuals who only want to use the coverage when they are going to incur a large dental expense.

Are there dental insurance plans that cover major services without a waiting period?

Dental Shop Staff Writer | February 17, 2015
