It’s great that most patients can recognize the early signs of gum disease, but we think it’s important to highlight the even more severe complications to keep in mind as well. Williamsburg Dental has a dentist in Lincoln that’s ready to offer a wide variety of general and preventive dentistry services to families who need it—including periodontal therapy for the critical treatment of gum disease.

It is no secret that dental care can be expensive, which is why you need dental insurance. However, this is often where the confusion regarding insurance benefits begins. Your dental benefits are different than your medical insurance. In fact, they are two different types of insurance. It can be difficult to determine where the line is drawn between which services are covered under each insurance. As a result, many people delay seeing their Lincoln dentist because they are not sure what is covered or which insurance to use. At Williamsburg Dental, we do not want to see you avoid the dentist because you do not understand your insurance benefits. We have the information you need to decrease the confusion about your insurance policies.

First, they draped a lead apron over your body and then went behind a wall after aiming the x-ray machine at you. You’ve been experiencing this for years, but this one particular time you thought, “Wait, is this safe?” You know exposure to radiation can be extremely unhealthy, so why is it alright to use it in dentistry? Fortunately, your Lincoln dentist at Williamsburg Dental only uses digital x-rays, which are not only extremely safe for patients, but also have many other benefits. (more…)
