EDUCATION, NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS



The prevalence of myths and old wives tales about toothaches have led some people to believe some strange things. While many of these myths are harmless, others could actually cause you to make poor decisions regarding your oral health. By identifying some of the strangest things that people believe about toothaches, you can take steps to keep your mouth healthy.

If It Stops Hurting, You’re Fine

Some people believe that if they have a toothache but it stops hurting, they are in the clear. This is an especially attractive myth to people who would like to avoid a trip to the dentist, but unfortunately, tooth pain that lasts for several days before disappearing mysteriously isn’t a great sign. Additionally, the oral health issue that caused the toothache in the first place won’t simply go away, as your teeth aren’t able to heal themselves, so you should still follow up with your dentist.

Whether you are looking for a new plan or trying to determine your coverage options for your current plan, understanding your dental insurance policy can be a real headache. Insurance companies have a tendency to use confusing terms and jargon, and if you do not understand them, you might not be getting the most out of your coverage. Here are some of the most important that you will want to know.

Allowable Charge

This is the amount of money that your insurance has agreed to pay for a service or supply. This might be different from the amount that your health care professional has billed, but your insurance company has likely negotiated a special rate for members.

Annual Limit

The annual limit is the total max dollar amount that your insurance company will play for insurance claims within a given year. This might also be referred to as a calendar year maximum, but some plans might not have a set annual limit.
