Insurance Terminology Explained In Easy Language
Insurance lingo is confusing. We've created this guide to clarify definitions of commonly used dental insurance language. We are always available to help our patients navigate their insurance plans and benefits, so feel free to call us anytime.
Dental Membership Savings Plan
For most people without dental insurance, the only option is to pay fully for all dental costs out of pocket at the time of service. We understand this often makes people delay preventive treatments that are important for their health.
The Importance of X-rays for Children and Adults
“I’ve heard X-rays aren’t good for me, why do I (or my kids) need them?”
This is an important question many of our new patients ask. As many people know, doing unnecessary dental treatments can have a negative effect on your health. We take time, at each visit, to make sure we are doing everything necessary for your health, while not overdoing anything. ...

What is a Holistic/Biologic Dentist exactly?
This is an important question to ask. There isn’t a governing body regulating Holistic Dentists in the same way the American Dental Association, A.D.A, is guiding general dentists.
Holistic dentists have to maintain the regulations and standards of practice set out by the Board of Dentistry in each state, as do all dentists. Holistic dentists often go above the State Board’s standard practices of care and get additional certifications and memberships.
In other words, most all holistic dentists would meet the criteria of "above" the standard of care because they need to always meet the A.D.A regulations, and then they go above the standard by adding to it. ....
Sealants. What you need to know for your health.
A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating applied to the back teeth. It protects teeth from decay. Sealants help prevent tiny pieces of food and bacteria from getting into crevices and grooves in the teeth. There are many areas on the tooth where brushing and flossing can’t get at the bacteria and food particles. Prevention of anything getting into the grooves can help the teeth stay healthy.
Importance of High Quality Dental Implants
A dental implant is one of the most effective ways to replace a missing or failing tooth. It can take approximately 4-9 months, from start to finish.
Why Deep Cleanings (Scaling and Root Planing) Are Necessary for Patients with Gum Disease
While a regular dental cleaning is an in-and-out procedure that can be completed in 30 to 60 minutes, a deep cleaning is a much more extensive and time-consuming process. Your hygienist will pay special attention to removing build-up on your teeth, roots and along your gumline to help restore a health environment inside your mouth.
You Get What You Pay For In Dentistry
When choosing a dentist, it is important to decide on your top priority in making the decision.

mercury silver filling, there are new techniques to help manage the
removal of mercury amalgams safely to ensure there is no exposure
and health risk. At Studio Z Dental, we firmly believe in being
“mercury free”, and have been so since 2000. What does that

Do You Have Mercury in
Many people underestimate the
health risks of mercury. They know that it’s in tuna, and some
know that mercury is in their silver amalgam fillings. But what
most people are not aware of is that there is no safe level of
mercury exposure. Mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium or even
arsenic. It is the most toxic, non-radioactive element on the
earth. Just one atom of mercury is harmful to the body, and the
greatest source of mercury ....
