No insurance? No worries! For many people, dental insurance can be prohibitively expensive and may also be surprisingly limited. That is why Art & Science Family Dentistry has developed the Smile Saver program. Now everyone in your family can get the quality dental care they need, without the cost and hassle of dental insurance.
What are the advantages?
For an affordable annual fee, Smile Saver entitles your family to all the preventive care they need, including cleanings, exams, X-rays, and fluoride treatments. Furthermore, you receive 15% savings on all other dental services, including restorative and cosmetic procedures. There is no annual maximum on savings, no claims to submit, and no waiting period. And it is you and your dentist, not an insurance company, that decide what dental care is important.
Note that standard hygiene does not include periodontal treatment.

Many people may not even realize they have bad breath, but at some point, everyone suffers from this undesirable condition. Bad breath can come from a variety of reasons, including certain foods, poor oral hygiene, gum disease, certain diets, and even dehydration. To prevent bad breath, we recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, use a tongue scraper to clean bacteria from the back of your mouth, visit a dental professional frequently, drink plenty of water (it washes bacteria away), and use mouthwash.
Our dentists recommend that you brush and floss frequently to remove the bacteria and plaque that leads to gum disease. To prevent plaque from building up, we recommend that you brush at least twice a day. Use small circular motions and point your toothbrush towards the gum line. Generally, an electronic toothbrush is a good tool to utilize. We also recommend that you floss daily. We may recommend that you use a floss holder if you struggle with standard floss. Rinse your mouth with water after meals if you are unable to brush.
Amalgam fillings are made from a combination of metals and are used to fill teeth. Some studies claim that these fillings are unhealthy; however, most believe that amalgam fillings are safe. While mercury is a toxic material (mercury is a component of amalgam fillings), it becomes inactive when combined with the other materials in a filling.
In general, we recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. These routine visits allow our dentists and team to make certain that your smile is in good health. Based on your specific dental needs, we may suggest more frequent appointments to ensure that you stay in optimal oral health.
Evaluation for gingivitis and periodontitis occurs at every hygiene appointment. In general, we recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. These routine visits allow our dentists and team to make certain that your smile is in good health. Based on your specific dental needs, we may suggest more frequent appointments to ensure that you stay in optimal oral health.
Brushing your teeth can remove the food debris, plaque, and tartar from all of the visible surfaces of the teeth. However, brushes cannot reach those areas where the teeth hug together. Furthermore, these areas are very susceptible to decay. Flossing also stimulates the gum tissue, increasing blood flow to the gums and decreasing bacteria along the gum line. For these reasons, it is important to floss daily.
If you are not completely satisfied with the appearance of your smile, Drs. Kinney, Musser, and Kinney can provide you with many services. We are able to brighten your smile, replace old, unattractive dental fillings, and correct chips, gaps, stains, and crooked teeth.
