Wear a mouth guard during physical activities to prevent injury to your teeth, gums or jaw. A mouth guard can also help prevent damage from grinding your teeth. Ask your dentist if one is right for you.

If you or your child are referred to a specialist for treatment, such as an oral surgeon for removal of wisdom teeth, you will most likely maximize your benefits for the year. Keep in mind that if you then have a routine cleaning and exam, you may not be covered if you don’t have the benefits to use. It's always best to check with your insurance company to be sure.

Flossing is so important to your dental health. It's hard to get excited about flossing because we can't always see all of the benefits we get from flossing. Flossing removes about 40% of the sticky plaque or bacteria from your teeth.
Plaque generates acid, which can cause cavities and gum disease. Each tooth has five surfaces; if you don't floss, you are leaving two surfaces unclean. Flossing is the only thing that can clean the space between the teeth and remove the bacteria.
Flossing might also be considered a secret weapon in the fountain of youth. Gum disease can ruin the youthful look of your smile by destroying the gums and teeth. It also attacks the bones that support our teeth and lower jaw. People who preserve the height of the jaw bone by flossing look younger as they age.
