What Happens When The Uninsured go to The Emergency Room?

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that an increasing number of people are now unable to afford medical insurance. Some 47 million people do not have medical insurance. When they begin to fall sick, there is nothing that can be done if money is short. When it comes to a choice between food on the table and treatment, most people decide to eat. They hope they will get better. When health does not improve, there is no improvement in the choice to be made. If treatment remains unaffordable, they have to wait until their sickness worsens to the point it can be considered an emergency. At this point, people decide to go to the emergency room at their local hospital. Federal law is very clear. Hospitals are under a positive legal obligation to treat everyone who walks in through the door. It does not matter whether the emergency is real, in the sense of a traffic accident inflicting unexpected injury, or to some extent manufactured, where the condition only becomes an emergency because of a deliberate delay. People must be given treatment.

The difficulty is that most of the uninsured cannot afford to pay their bills. The hospitals can and do issue invoices for the treatment given and drugs supplied. This is also a part of the law. People have a responsibility to pay for their treatment. But hospitals are realistic about their chances of collecting. Continued pursuit for payment usually results in bankruptcy and the creditors only get a few cents in the dollar. So, hospitals make a rational decision. They spread all the unpaid bills among all those who can pay. In other words, whether you are paying out of your own pocket or you are relying on your own health insurance to pay for your treatment, a percentage of every hospital’s bill is a provision against bad debts from the uninsured. The irony is that everyone who is insured is also insuring all the uninsured for their emergency room visits. If you have been wondering why your own health insurance premiums have been going up so sharply of late, it’s because there is a wave of uninsured people going to the emergency rooms around the country.

The health insurers are having to pay more and this additional cost gets passed on in the premiums. Is it going to get any better? No. It’s actually going to get worse. Ever more people are finding health insurance unaffordable. Even with sites like this which allow people to find the cheapest insurance around, many still find the premiums too much. That does not mean you should give up. Using this site will get you offers. Then it’s up to you to negotiate directly with the insurer or its agents to get the best actual premium for the cover. It’s not worth the risk of being uninsured. If at all possible, get some cover.

Getting a Smile That Brightens The Room

Having discoloured teeth is normal. Letting them stay discoloured, is not normal.

Pretty much everyone is doing something to make their teeth whiter, what they do depends on how discoloured their teeth are. There is the most common way which is getting toothpaste that helps whiten teeth, there are teeth whitening strips, teeth whitening gels. When all that fails, then it’s time to get professional help.

At the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre you can find many different procedures done from smile rejuvenation, preventive dentistry examinations and protection, restoration, special services like implants, root canals or teeth whitening. With any of those procedures you also get a five-star treatment unlike any dental clinic you’ve been to. The Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre takes pride in doing things a little differently. They want their patients to not dread a trip to the dentist’s office. Music and movies of your choice are available in their treatment rooms to create a serene and tranquil environment that helps you relax and enjoy your five-star treatment.

Teeth Whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry mostly using hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to lighten the shade of the tooth’s enamel which is stained. There are two types of stains you could be dealing with:

Extrinsic stains: these are the stains on the surface of your teeth. These are a result of exposure to dark-coloured beverages, foods and tobacco, and routine wear and tear. These are considered minor and can be removed with brushing and dental cleaning, but stubborn stains need a strong teeth whitening approach like the ones you can get at the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre.

Intrinsic stains: these stains are in the interior of the teeth caused by aging, exposure to minerals during tooth formation and/or excessive ingestion of fluoride.

Why our teeth discolour in the first place is due to many different reasons, some can be avoided and some just can’t:

Age: As we age, skin becomes looser, hair becomes grey and teeth discolour as well. Because of wear and tear and stain accumulation, by the time we’re 40 or 50 teeth will need regular maintenance. At 20 or 30 it’s easier to whiten teeth as stains are not so stubborn.

Translucency and thinness: These are in the genes. Some people have thinner and more transparent teeth while others have thicker and not so translucent teeth. Thinner teeth like our front teeth have less of the pigment that is necessary for bleaching.

Eating habits: A lot of what we eat can affect our teeth like red wine, coffee, tea, cola, carrots, oranges and other deeply-coloured beverages and foods cause considerable staining over the years. Also acidic food contributes to enamel erosion so the surface of our teeth becomes more transparent and the yellow-coloured dentin shows through

Smoking habits: The true tooth stain! Nicotine is not your teeth’s friend, it leaves brownish deposits which slowly soak into the tooth structure and cause intrinsic discoloration that’s not easy to clean up especial as you age and the more you smoke.

So when you want whiter teeth, the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre will give them to you. They have different whitening methods you can choose from including Xenon Halogen whitening. This is a procedure that uses xenon-halogen whitening lights that illuminate the upper and lower teeth at the same time.

At the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre you can get a complete tooth whitening package for an all inclusive price. Enjoy the benefits of the one-hour “In Surgery Whitening System” and in addition you can also get your own set of customized trays permitting you to maintain that bright smile that we just gave you whilst in the comfort of your own home.
