The staff here at the Homestead Cigna PPO dentist practice of Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA, understands very well how busy life can be. We also understand that, because of this busyness, it can be hard to carve out time for those six-month comprehensive dental exams, especially when it seems like your teeth are perfectly healthy on their own. But if we could have your attention for a couple of minutes, we want to remind you why regular dental appointments are so important to maintaining oral health. Our hope is that we can convince you and yours to come see us not once, but twice, in 2014.
One of the main reasons people give for not making their biannual dental checkups with our Homestead Cigna PPO dentist, Robert Chuckler, DDS, PA, is that they have really healthy habits day-to-day. While eating right, and brushing and flossing two or three times a day certainly go a long way towards keeping your teeth cavity-free and your gums gingivitis-free, there are some things you simply cannot do at home. One of the things you need special equipment and expertise for is a professional polish to bust up the plaque and tartar brushing and flossing can’t get rid of. The other major thing you really can’t do at home is screen yourself for the subtle early signs of oral health problems such as cavities, gingivitis, cysts and cancers of the mouth, tongue and throat — all of which are much better treated sooner rather than later.
If it’s the financial side of things that’s keeping you from making your biannual appointments, you should also know that we accept lots of insurance plans including Delta Dental, UnitedHealthcare PPO, and, as you might expect, Cigna PPO. (To see if we accept your insurance, all you have to do is call and ask.) We also accept credit cards, CareCredit and personal checks.
