DENTAL PROCEDURES COVERED UNDER SUPERIOR ADULT MEDICAID |
Paris Family Dental
If an adult has just been accepted on a Medicaid plan they may not know exactly what dental procedures are covered under that plan. At Paris Family Dental, we are excited to announce that we offer specific dental services and procedures for patients with adult SUPERIOR Medicaid. These services and procedures include:
- bone grafts
Each of these services and procedures are important to maintaining a person’s oral health as well as overall health. The services and procedures covered under adult Medicaid are necessary to help prevent further dental problems as well as help a person who may be experiencing tooth pain. In this article we will be discussing the importance of adult Medicaid and how it can help when someone is suffering from dental problems.
When a person is experiencing tooth pain they may not want to see a dentist because the cost of treatment may be more than they can afford. Adult Medicaid is an insurance provided to those who cannot afford insurance on their own. This service provides not only health insurance but also dental insurance for certain procedures and services.
As mentioned above the services provided are used to help relieve pain and remove an issue before it progresses and spreads. Leaving a dental problem, and not getting treatment, is not healthy. In fact, neglecting a dental problem and hoping it will just go away is not recommended. Dental problems never go away or fix themselves. Each service and procedure covered under adult Medicaid is useful in diagnosing and quickly alleviating any dental issues. If a person has a toothache they are able to see a dentist for a diagnosis and treatment without fear of cost.
During an oral exam the dentist physically checks the teeth, gums and other areas of the mouth. The dentist can use different instruments to probe each tooth and check for decay or infection. For issues that are not seen with the naked eye the dentist will use x-rays to show them what may be hiding below.
X-rays are images taken that can show the teeth and bone and areas that can’t be seen with a hands on exam. The dentist uses these images to check for infection, cracks in teeth, bone loss or other underlying problems. The oral exam as well as the x-rays allow for the dentist to diagnose whatever may be affecting a person’s mouth.
Under adult Medicaid a person can have a needed extraction without having to pay any fees. If a tooth cannot be repaired, and the dentist recommends an extraction, the procedure is covered under adult Medicaid. With severe tooth pain an extraction can be used to remove the problem and eliminate the pain. There are several tooth problems that can occur that may require the tooth to be removed or extracted. Some of these problems include:
- damaged tooth that can’t be repaired
- severe infection
- severe decay
- problems with wisdom teeth
Suffering through pain or leaving an infected tooth untreated can become harmful to a person’s oral and overall health. Some symptoms that may indicate a tooth may need to be extracted include:
- severe tooth pain
- jaw pain or swelling
- gum disease
- swollen gums
- loose teeth
- continuous pain that gets worse with chewing or biting
