If you or your children are covered by the Medicaid or CHIP insurance programs, then the team of dentists at Ace Dental would be happy to welcome you. We offer a comprehensive menu of dental services so your family can enjoy all the benefits that come with having a smile that is healthy and bright. Ace Dental is the Medicaid dentist in Temple you can count on to provide outstanding treatment and customer service.
Medicaid Dental Care for Children
In Texas, Medicaid Dental provides services for children under the age of 21, which includes exams, x-rays, cleaning, fillings, crowns, braces, and more. At Ace Dental we are dedicated to helping your young children establish a lifetime of good oral health care. Our dentists are very gentle and patient. They even take the time to make your child’s appointment fun! In addition to a healthy smile, we also want kids to have great memories of visiting the dentist so they’ll be sure to come back when they are adults.
Medicaid Dental Care for Adults
Whether or not you are covered for dental care under Medicaid depends on the plan in which you are enrolled. Our front office will be happy to help you determine the extent of your coverage.
Dental Checkups in Temple
Whether you are coming to see the dentist in Temple or you are bringing your children, our treatment is founded on a complete dental checkup that includes a cleaning and exam. The dental hygienist will carefully brush and floss your teeth, evaluate your gums and take digital x-rays when necessary. If we find a concern such as a cavity, cracked tooth, or gum disease, we’ll discuss the best options for treatment with you.
Oral Health Care at Home
In between your regular visits to our office, you will need to maintain a rigorous program of oral hygiene at home. Teeth brushing and flossing are absolute necessities to enjoying a smile that lasts a lifetime.
To help you and your children perform better oral hygiene care each day, we’d like to offer the following list of tips.
- Only use a soft toothbrush to clean your teeth. A brush with hard bristles is too abrasive for your teeth.
- Choose fluoride toothpaste that is approved by the American Dental Association.
- Brush at least twice each day for two minutes at a time.
- Floss once a day.
- Encourage your children to brush and floss, too, by making this a family activity that everyone does together morning and night.
