When it comes to dental care, there are a lot of reasons patients give for skipping out on their preventive appointments and foregoing necessary restorative services. Most people guess that dental phobia or anxiety are the leading reasons patients avoid visiting their dentist. According to a poll by one of the leading national dental insurance providers, cost is actually the main reason patients skip out on dental care. People are concerned they will not be able to afford the out of pocket costs of treatment, and rather than deal with this stress, they choose to avoid dental care altogether. Your insurance dentist in Slidell has a better option. Our knowledgeable team reviews insurance and financing information with all new patients, and they maximize your dental insurance coverage to ensure you have the lowest out of pocket costs. Then, we work with you one on one to develop a financing plan that fits your needs and budget.

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) have confirmed what dentists and health professionals have been telling patients for years: having your wisdom teeth removed helps you to stay healthy. Did you know that 80% of young adults that previously had healthy wisdom teeth that came in with little to no pain have developed problems within the next following 7 years? “Even if wisdom teeth aren’t causing any immediate problems, it’s likely that people will face complications down the road,” said Dr. Louis K. Rafetto, chair of the AAOMS Task Force on Third Molar Data. “The fact is [that] extraction is much easier for young adults and research consistently shows that it is a simple way of improving both dental health and overall health.”
If you’ve been feeling the pressure and tooth pain that developing wisdom teeth cause, you may want to consider getting them removed. Your dentist in Slidell can perform painless and ultimately helpful wisdom teeth extractions to benefit your overall health. If you’re thinking about it, you may have a few questions.

There may be plenty of reasons to stay away from that delicious donut other than cavities, but enduring a toothache is one problem that is hard to ignore. Our first thought is to blame sugar itself as the villain, but as it turns out, the sweet stuff has some partners in crime. That is why your dentist in Slidell wants you to be aware of the bigger picture going on in your mouth, and what you can do to stay ahead of the game.

It may be surprising to hear that good oral hygiene prevention starts very early. Studies show that pre-school aged children are at a high risk for the development of cavities, as many are experiencing their first cavity by the age of two. That is why it is so important to begin managing your child’s diet, hygiene and fluoride treatments as soon as possible. It is not uncommon to have your child see a dentist soon after receiving their first tooth or when they reach their first birthday – whichever comes first. Many issues besides cavities can be discussed along with determining an appropriate schedule for follow-up visits. Your dentist in Slidell is going to talk a little more about when you should bring your child in for their first dental visit, and what to expect.
