New Jersey Dentist Reveals Types and Uses of Different Porcelain Dental Restorations; Dr. Jody Bardash Discusses Three Types of Porcelain Restorations Available at Dental Professionals of Fair Lawn, as Well as What Concerns Each Can Be Used to Address

"At Dental Professionals of Fair Lawn, we use many different types of porcelain for dental restorations," says New Jersey dentist Jody Bardash, DMD. "It's all dependent on the patient and his or her specific case." Included among these porcelain options are daVinci, E-max(R), and BruxZir(R) Solid Zirconia, Dr. Bardash notes, all of which have unique benefits for particular indications.

For patients interested in improving the appearance of gaps, chips, discolorations, and other cosmetic concerns, Dr. Bardash says porcelain veneers constructed by the daVinci Dental Studio can often be an excellent option. "If you're purely seeking aesthetic improvement for your teeth, we typically use daVinci veneers, which are composed of ultra-thin ceramic material and bounded to the front of the teeth. High quality restorations made at labs such as daVinci use several layers of porcelain when they create their veneers, and that produces the translucency and color that mimics natural teeth." In addition to their natural look and feel, he notes that daVinci veneers are also highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, wine, and cigarette smoking.

She states that there are a variety of techniques designed to reduce dental anxiety and give patients a relaxing treatment experience.

Integrated Health Benefits: Employers and Employees See Eye-to-Eye; Employees Say They Would Be Healthier with Connected Benefits and Coverage

Offering integrated healthcare benefits plans - connecting dental, vision, life, disability and pharmacy benefits to a health plan - is a growing trend in the insurance industry. While having one insurer with many offerings (instead of multiple plans) makes good business sense for employers - due to the administrative simplicity, cost savings and time savings - it can also result in improved quality of care and better health for employees.

"We surveyed employers and employees on what they want in their health plans, and both overwhelmingly agreed with the advantages of integrating benefits," said Jeff Spahr, vice president of WellPoint's Specialty businesses. "It was also refreshing to see people intuitively understand the connection between their eyes, teeth and overall health, so sharing information across plans and with doctors leads to employees receiving a better quality of care."

Dental Care Too Late or Elusive for Many Native Adults and Elders in Indian Country

Ed Edmo, a Shoshone-Bannock poet and storyteller in Portland, Ore., vividly remembers when as a child he had a painful, decayed tooth pulled one morning more than 60 years ago.

He had traveled from his Oregon home on the edge of the Columbia River's salmon-rich Celilo Falls, a tribal fishing area later submerged under dam water, to the Cushman Indian Hospital dental clinic in Tacoma, Wash. He remembers being greeted by a white dentist with a pockmarked face and eyebrows grown together. And he recalls cold steel in his mouth just before a burst of pain so excruciating he passed out.

"My mother heard me screaming," recalls Edmo, now 67.

He doesn't know why the dentist denied him a painkiller before yanking his tooth, he says, but the experience left him mistrustful of all medical professionals well into his 30s. By age 16, he had lost all of his teeth to decay and high school football injuries.
