Dental Health and Body Changes
It is very important to everyone to get their bi-annual cleanings, not only because you are paying for it out of your paycheck monthly but because health issues can make changes to your mouth. Like Diabetes,cancer, and certain medications can also alter the mouth by becoming dry which can activate cavities, bad breath and gum disease. Pregnancy is another life changing event,especially for the body and can rapidly change your mouth. Babies take nutrients that help the mouth, which can weaken teeth, make gum tissue sore and or bleed. The teeth are more prone to decay when pregnant. Most Insurance companies are starting to realize that maybe having an extra cleaning would benefit the patients plus them with less out of pocket for both in the end. If you are one of these patients that are finding yourself in a life changing event, contact your Insurance and see if the company has a clause that allows for more cleanings during that time.
