Ways to keep a healthy smile even without dental benefits

Many dentists will work with their patients, to make sure they maintain their oral health, even if they can't make it to the office. Dr. Betor says there are 3 things you can do, to help you through tough times.

First, if you have a healthy smile you can stretch your cleanings from every 6 months, to once a year. But talk to your dentist about over the counter products that will help keep your gums healthy, and cut down on placque between visits.

Second, you can schedule cleanings with a local dentist school or program that trains dental hygienists. They are must less expensive. The downside is that appointments generally take longer, and the student isn't as aware of your dental history.

Third, postpone elective dental procedures. That includes whitening, braces for you or your children, and even replacing mercury fillings, as long as your teeth are healthy.

Dr. Betor says problems that you can't ignore include any pain, swelling, infection or broken teeth.

According to "The inflammation and infection associated with periodontal disease may damage other organs such as the heart, liver, and kidneys, or lead to other serious health problems."

How to Manage Dental Costs, With or Without Insurance

MUCH has been said and written about the tens of millions of Americans without health insurance. But often overlooked in these discussions is another vital medical statistic: more than 100 million Americans go without dental coverage.
For most people, a toothache that turns into an expensive procedure like a crown or implant means thousands of dollars out of pocket. Routine checkups, cleanings and fillings can set you back hundreds. No wonder 35 percent of Americans have not visited a dentist in the last 12 months, according to a Gallup report in March.
The health care bills circulating in the House and Senate include dental care provisions for children, which is good. But it also means that for most of us relief from dental bills is not likely to come soon. That leaves it up to consumers to find smart ways to reduce their dental care costs without sacrificing their oral health. So we asked experts and patients for advice.

Suffer from Dry Mouth?

Well there is hope for you yet!

Several people suffer daily from a condition known as Xeristomia or Dry Mouth. Dry mouth can be brought on by any number of medical maladies and various prescription drugs. Most sufferers have found little to no relief from this condition and find themselves constantly drinking more water in hopes of quenching it.

New studies have shown that gums, candies, rinses and sweetners containing Xylitol offer comfort to those suffering from dry mouth. The xylitol coats the soft tissues of the mouth sealing in moisture and stimulates saliva flow.

There is a plethora of amazing over-the-counter products endorsed by dentists for treating dry mouth. Some products to check out are Biotene, Oasis and Sensodyne for Dry Mouth.
