WHAT OUR AMERIPLAN® MEMBERS ARE SAYING
Yvonne R. – Hockley, TX
I had a tooth extraction a few months ago. The cost would have been $500.00, but with my AmeriPlan discount it cost $264.00, which was more than a 50% savings. I’d say it was a pretty good deal!
Jessica W. – Edmond, OK
Just got back from the boy's dental appts. Wow, both of them would have cost me $304, but saved $139 with AmeriPlan, as it was only $165. I also saved another $82 when I had my own appointment two weeks ago, so we had a total savings of $221 in two weeks. Thanks AmeriPlan. I highly recommend!
Greg S. – Virginia Beach, VA
I signed up and received over 50% savings the same day with my daughters visit to the dentist: exam and x-ray without AmeriPlan $180.00 exam and x-ray with AmeriPlan $80.00. It was greatly appreciated!
Diana H. – Harbor City
I was so excited the other day after my cousin called. I had been talking to her about getting the dental plan for awhile, but because she is on disability, she waited until it was a real necessity and had such a bad toothache that she couldn't eat. All in all she had to have two extractions and a bridge built and it was going to cost $3,000. With the AmeriPlan card, she was only going to have to play $1,000 and the dentist even put her on a payment plan!!! Thank you AmeriPlan!
DENTAL PLAN INFORMATION FOR MOMS AND CHILDRENYour child’s first dental check up
Dental Care and Pregnancy
If possible try to have a dental check up prior to getting pregnant so any urgent dental issues can be treated before your pregnancy. This is incredibly important when you consider that certain types of gum disease have been liked to pre-term birth. Also, the hormonal changes your body goes through during pregnancy can affect your dental health. One of the conditions these hormonal changes can lead to is called pregnancy gingivitis. So it is important to maintain you're dental health before during and after your pregnancy. Keep regularly scheduled appointments and be sure to inform your dentist of your pregnancy.

INFORMATION FOR ATHLETESMouth Guards for Athletes
Mouth guards help protect the mouth and teeth during sports and in some cases dentists will recommend a special type of mouth guard to protect the teeth during sleep from teeth grinding. Adults and children should use mouth guards during contact sports such as football, basketball and hockey. Some other sports that you may not think of as needing mouth guards are, martial arts and mountain biking.
COMMON DENTAL PROBLEMS, THEIR SYMPTOMS AND SOLUTIONSBad Breath
Chances are we have all been on both the giving and receiving end of bad breath. There is no need to talk about the symptom, it’s obvious! There are several causes and solutions, so let’s go over a few. Foods with very strong odors such as garlic can cause bad breath. Mints, mouthwash and even brushing can help but often the odor doesn't completely go away until the body has processed the food from the body. Poor dental hygiene is a common cause of bad breath. Food particles left in the mouth, between the teeth and even in small amounts on the tongue attract bacteria that cause bad breath. The solution is an easy one, brush and floss twice a day every day. Gum disease can cause bad breath. Poor dental hygiene for an extended amount of time leads to a build up of plaque which leads to gum disease. Daily brushing and flossing and thorough cleaning at your dental check ups help to prevent this problem.
Sensitive teeth can be very uncomfortable and even painful to deal with. According to the Academy of General Dentistry at least 40 million American adults suffer with sensitive teeth. Many dentists believe the most common cause is acidic foods and beverages. Improper brushing technique is also believed to be a cause. The pain caused by sensitive teeth can be triggered by hot or cold food and drinks, pressure on the tooth and breathing in cold air. Ironically some dentists believe that certain tooth pastes, mouth washes and whitening products contribute to erosion of enamel which leads to tooth sensitivity. The Academy of General Dentistry has a few recommendations to help with sensitive teeth; Use a desensitizing tooth paste. Use a soft bristled tooth brush. Brush and floss regularly at least twice a day for two or three minutes. Hold your tooth brush at a 45 degree angle, brush gently in a circular motion and hold the tooth brush in your fingertips not the palm of your hand. Avoid acidic foods and drinks.
Only the common cold occurs more often than tooth decay. Bacteria in the mouth convert food into acids. These acids build up on the teeth with in minutes of eating. If not removed they attack the tooth and create tiny holes in the enamel and then continue to grow. If not treated they can become painful and result in tooth loss. Early symptoms are tiny holes or dark spots on the surface of the tooth and toothache. They must be treated by a dentist.
Gingivitis is a type of gum disease. You can treat and reverse gingivitis. It begins with a build up of plaque that causes the gums to become red and swollen. A common sign is gums that easily bleed during brushing and flossing. The solution is normally very easy, regular brushing and flossing twice a day and check ups with your dentist twice a year that include a thorough cleaning.
