Bolingbrook Dentist Reminds Patients to use Health Benefits Before the end of the Year

Dr. Suzy Azalea of Lily Cache Dental in Bolingbrook urges patients to use their dental benefits before they expire at the end of the year.

Although patients are typically aware that their dental insurance benefits for the year will be lost if left unused, many people simply forget to schedule dental appointments during the holiday rush.

“When it comes to dental plans, most insurance companies force patients to ‘Use It or Lose It,’” says Dr. Azalea. “We want our patients to take full advantage of the benefits that they deserve so they can maintain their oral health.”

As part of the campaign, Dr. Azalea, dentist in Bolingbrook, posts online reminders and also asks patients to talk to their friends and family members about using all of their available dental benefits.

Lily Cache Dental welcomes existing and new patients alike to visit for a “last minute” appointment. The practice accepts most insurance, including PPOs. To schedule an appointment, call (630) 739-9430. Dr. Azalea and her staff will do everything they can to accommodate all patients during the last days of December so they can take advantage of their 2013 insurance benefits.

What is Holistic Dental Care?

Rocio Martinez Dental now offers holistic option to patients.

Holistic Medicine is based on the premise that the body is one unit and how you treat one aspect of that unit has an effect on other aspects. Holistic Dentistry is based on the same notion that what affects the mouth affects the body, and vice versa. If infections of the mouth affect the rest of the body, then dental problems can be seen as causes of other aches and pains as well.

Holistic dentists take off from this premise to consider the impact of dental health in greater depth. For instance, they might discuss nutrition as it affects dental health and include alternative therapies, such as homeopathy, in their practice: treat your gums non-surgically, use antibiotics sparingly as they can disrupt the body, eschew root canals because of concerns about infection, try to use biocompatible dental restoration materials.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

There are plenty of patients that cannot easily get numb, are too young to cooperate, suffer from tremor related illnesses, require extensive treatment needs, have an unmanageable gag reflex, or are just too difficult to manage due to their underlying anxiety. Having a dental anesthesiologist in our office will facilitate treatment for these types of patients. The ultimate beneficiaries of anesthesia services will be highly satisfied patients.

The safety record of anesthesia services provided in a dental office has dramatically improved in a past decade due to increased training requirements of the anesthesia provider. Dr. Osmolinski as a Dental Anesthesiologist has two additional years of general anesthesia training and is specifically trained to provide anesthesia for patients undergoing dental treatment. The risks associated with anesthesia are not any more than with any other surgery and are minimized by thorough preoperative patient evaluation and appropriate intraoperative monitoring.

Adult patients are not the only ones benefiting from anesthesia services provided in our office. There are some children and special-needs patients with extensive treatment needs, acute situational anxiety, uncooperative age-appropriate behavior, immature cognitive functioning, disabilities, or medical conditions which require deep sedation or general anesthesia to receive dental treatment in a safe and humane fashion. Our pediatric dentist can offer this treatment modality by working closely with our dental anesthesiologist to assure the comfort and safety of your child throughout the entire dental procedure.

Should I Get Dental Implants?

If you are missing one or more teeth, restore your smile with a visit to Gurnee, IL implant dentist Dr. Mulvaney. The professionals at the Northwestern Dental Implants can correct a wide scope of smile imperfections with dental implants. Dental implants have been around for over 40 years and are changing people’s lives every day. With implants, you can once again eat steak, smile openly, and speak without inhibitions–all the everyday activities you may not have been able to do with missing teeth.

With implants, you can once again resume all the everyday activities you may not have been able to do with missing teeth. Since dental implants function as natural teeth do, after your new smile is complete, you can enjoy life again to the fullest and eat your favorite foods, laugh, smile, and speak without worrying about your replacement teeth slipping out or being embarrassed about your smile.

Our patients report that after receiving dental implants, they experience positive changes in all aspects of their lives. As the quality of their everyday lives improves, they feel happier, more successful, and more confident. Work, sports and intimacy all become “normal” when smiling makes you feel confident instead of embarrassed.

During your first visit to Northwestern Dental Implants, you will be seen by Dr. Mulvaney or Dr. Patel to discuss your concerns and start creating the ideal treatment plan designed for you. When planning a course of treatment, we keep in mind your overall health, goals, and budget. All necessary X-rays will be taken, and your doctor will explain your treatment options so you can make a decision that is absolutely best for you.
