Dental Contouring to Reshape Teeth

by Monticello Dental on 01/27/20

This is a procedure in which the dentist will remove an extremely small amount of dental enamel to make teeth more attractive. Reshaping of teeth can correct slightly crooked or chipped teeth or shorten long teeth. Insurance does not typically cover the cost but the procedure is usually much less than other cosmetic procedures, depending on how much work is completed. Additionally, reshaping of teeth is usually pain free and requires no anesthetic, and it can be completed in just one visit. Dental contouring is not a replacement for braces, which involves major changes to the positioning of teeth. For more information, call our OFallon dental office at 636-300-4280.

Why Replacing Missing or Extracted Teeth is Important

by Monticello Dental on 07/03/18

There are several reasons why replacing your missing or extracted teeth is important. How you look when you smile, how you speak, and how you chew can all be negatively impacted by missing teeth. There are a few options for replacing teeth such as dental implants, dental bridges, and removable partial dentures. For more information, visit our dental links above, the ADA Mouth Healthy Website here, or call our O'Fallon dental office at 636-300-4280.

Do You Know All There is to Know About Your Dental Insurance?

by Monticello Dental on 06/06/18

Choosing a dental insurance plan is hard enough, let alone understanding the details of how the benefits work. Can you see your dentist for a cleaning twice a year anytime or do you have to wait at least 6 months between cleaning visits? Can you receive x-rays 2 times per year or just once? What are your major benefits and is there a waiting period for those benefits? What is a missing tooth clause and does that apply to your plan? What is your deductible and what treatment will that apply to? What is the maximum amount your plan will pay out every year? The questions can go on and on!

You may receive a summary of benefits or have access to information online. But to really understand what benefits are available, you may need to contact the insurance company directly or speak to your dental provider and ask for a break down of benefits. Very often, it is easier for your dental provider to contact the insurance company to receive that information for you. If your dentist has recommended treatment and you are not sure how your dental insurance plan will pay, always ask your dental office for a pre-treatment estimate from your insurance company. Keep in mind that asking for a pre-treatment estimate may delay your treatment by up to 30 days, as this is how long it can take for the insurance company to respond to the request for a pre-treatment estimate.

What is a Dental CT Scan Used For?

by Monticello Dental on 01/20/18

A dental computed tomography (CT) scan is used to capture 3-D images of teeth, bone, nerves, and other soft tissue. The CT scan allows for more views and angles of the mouth than a traditional 2-D image, which then allows for more accurate treatment planning. Our office uses the CT machine for dental implant placement, determining bone structure, viewing the orientation of teeth, and for other procedures as needed.

If you have a question about our dental CT machine, or you would like to schedule an appointment, call us today at our O'Fallon MO dental office at 636-300-4280.

Benefits of Fluorescent Oral Cancer Screenings

by Monticello Dental on 06/28/17

Screening for oral cancer is critical to the early detection of abnormal tissue. Our office uses the latest technology to emit a special blue light on oral tissue which causes the tissue to fluoresce. This enhances areas that may be questionable and lead to a more detailed examination to determine if any abnormalities are present. The oral cancer screening is painless and very cost effective for detecting cancer in its early stages. If you would like to schedule an appointment, call us today at our O'Fallon MO dental office at 636-300-4280.

Do You Know the Signs of Sleep Apnea?

by Monticello Dental on 04/28/16

If you have been told that you snore and/or stop breathing during sleep, you may have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can be a serious condition, and studies indicate that there is a correlation between sleep apnea and hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and congestive heart failure. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, talk to your doctor or dentist about your symptoms. Very often, sleep apnea is treatable with CPAP Therapy through your physician or Oral Appliance Therapy through a dentist who has had advanced training in sleep medicine.
