The New Year Means New Dental Goals

January 2, 2018

Filed under: Blog — Tags: , — wemakeyousmile @ 3:37 pm

It’s the first of the year, and I’m guessing that means you have a number of goals for the next 12 months. Maybe you’d like to see a decline on the scales. Maybe you’d like to pick up a new hobby. Or maybe you’d like to correct some nagging dental issues. George A. Hoop, DDS, which can contact at  239-734-7737 can help you correct your dental problems and get you looking and feeling better.
Our Naples, FL dental office and our Fort Meyers, FL dental office can help you with any type of dental problem, whether you need preventive care or bigger procedures like replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Here are a few things we can do for you:

  • Cosmetic dentistry — We can touch up your smile with some in-office teeth whitening, dental veneers, or even orthodontic treatments.  
  • Restorative dentistry — You’ll only receive the best restorative care in our office, and we make sure that every restorative blends in naturally with your smile, whether it’s a filling, bridge, or dental crown.
  • Sleep apnea treatment — Few dental offices in our area offer treatment for sleep apnea, but this is one area where we stand out. Sleep apnea affects millions of people in the country, and we can treat this problem with a comfortable oral appliance.
  • Replace missing teeth — We’re using stable, durable dental implants to help patients struggling with missing teeth. We can replace single teeth or stabilize dentures using dental implants.  

Why You Should Fix Your Teeth This Year

This can be the year you can gain back your confidence and regain your smile. We are constantly treating patients who have struggled with dental issues for years. Unfortunately, your dental problems can’t fix themselves and will only get worse if you continue to ignore them.
We understand that there are barriers when it comes to fixing your dental problems. Maybe you’re scared, or maybe you have financial concerns. But your oral health is extremely important, as it is directly tied to your overall health. You see, problems like periodontal disease can lead to serious discomfort and even tooth loss. And the problems don’t end there. Studies have shown us that poor dental health, especially periodontal disease, can increase your risk for serious health problems like heart disease and diabetes.
When it comes to money, we have a comprehensive dental savings plan that allows you to receive discounts of up to 30 percent on services. Additionally, spouses can receive a 10 percent discount and dependents receive a 50 percent discount. The savings plan helps you with treatments like:

  • Tooth fillings
  • Dental crowns, bridges, or dentures
  • Dental implants
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • TMJ services

With our dental savings plan, you also don’t have to deal with the hassle of dental insurance. As you might already know, dental insurance doesn’t cover every procedure you might need. We’ve found that our savings plan is ideal for patients of all ages. So whether you’re retired or are gainfully employed, our dental plan can serve your dental needs.
With our Direct Dental Savings Plan, you pay an annual enrollment fee of $420 (or $37.50 a month). Our saving plan is often cheaper than most dental insurance plans.
If you already have dental insurance, the beginning of the year is an important time for you, as well. Most dental insurance providers give an annual allotment for dental services. That number is often anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500, depending on the provider. Also, dental insurance companies often covers two FREE dental cleanings and exams every year.
A problem with dental insurance … Dental insurance companies have not increased the cost of allotment dollars in decades, but the cost of dentistry has increased substantially. Being dental providers, we wish this wasn’t the case, but that’s exactly what’s happened. That being the case, dental insurance may not be able to help those who need extensive dental work … and in many cases you’ll have to go back-and-forth with the insurance company to see what they will cover. Some patients have had routine dental treatments only to be in for a BIG SURPRISE whenever their dental insurance wouldn’t cover the procedure.
