Dr. Steve Wolfington, of Cochise Caring Dentistry in Sierra Vista, AZ. announces their “Smile-A-Mile Program” that reimburses Cochise County Arizona Residents for gas used in round trip visits to their Sierra Vista AZ  dentist office.

Dr. Wolfington states, ”with the continued high price of gas, Cochise County residents are now paying an average of $3.73 per gallon, and with many patients a round trip visit can be up to 70 miles or more.

We have many patients traveling to our dental office in Sierra Vista, AZ. from Benson, Bisbee, Douglas and other outlying cities in Cochise County, even as far as Tucson. Our dental office has been in this location for over 30 years, and many staff members have treated and cared for 2 and 3 generations of our patient’s family and friends.  They drive here because they want the comfort of knowing they are in the same good hands as many of their family and friends have for so long.

Sierra Vista Dentist

We were compelled to do something to maintain the comfort level our patients enjoy and for new patients as well, and we want to keep it that way.  My wife Liz and I wanted to find a way we could help off-set the high cost of gas, and we came up with a simple program to help out our patients, “Smile-A-Mile”.

Smile-A-Mile reimburses patients for the round trip cost of gas

Our “Smile-A-Mile” Program reimburses our patients for their round trip cost of gas for each visit.  We calculated the mileage from each of the cities like Benson, Douglas, Tombstone, Bisbee and more, to our Sierra Vista, AZ Dentist  Office.  We used the average miles per gallon that a typical family vehicle gets according to statistics, the average cost of per gallon of gas throughout Cochise County Arizona, and came up with our “Smile-A-Mile Program”.   As an example, our Benson Arizona Patients are now being reimbursed $7.00 for each and every visit to our Sierra Vista Dental office, and all they need to do is bring in a water, electricity or phone bill to show proof of residence”.

We asked Dr. Wolfington “What about people with more than one family member or friend being treated, how are they reimbursed”?

520-458-1989

“We kept it simple as we could; it is reimbursed per patient, so as to support car pooling. If there are 3 patients in one visit, it is three times the gas reimbursement amount.  The amount to be reimbursed is credited to their individual treatment upon payment for services.   We have placed the rates of reimbursement for 8 cities on our new Cochise Caring Dentistry website, and if anyone outside of these cities would like to become a patient and join the Smile-A-Mile Program, all they have to do is contact us, tell us what city their traveling from and we’ll respond with the amount .”

Dentists Sierra Vista AZ and Having a Root Canal

Dentist Sierra Vista AZ

Dentist Sierra Vista AZ

Sometimes, when you have a toothache, Dentist Sierra Vista AZ notes the cause maybe due to the tooth being severely decayed.  If the toothache is causing you severe pain, the never on the inside of the tooth may be dying or already dead.  If this is the case, you’ll need to either have the tooth extracted by Dentist Sierra Vista Dr. Wolfington or the nerve removed from the tooth, in order to remove the abscess. Removing the nerve will save the tooth, and is known as a root canal.

Sierra Vista AZ Cochise County Dentist

The choice you need to make when thinking about a root canal, is whether or not you wish to save the dying tooth.  Sometimes, dentist Sierra Vista AZ Dr. Wolfington will recommend the root canal, especially if he thinks it would be in your best interest to save the tooth.  Other times, he will let you make the decision, and decide if you want to save it or just go ahead and have it extracted.

Sierra Vista AZ Dentist and Tooth Pain

Sierra Vista AZ Cochise County Dentist

Sierra Vista AZ Cochise County Dentist

Sierra Vista AZ Dentist Dr. Wolfington of Cochise Caring Dentistry has many patients that come to him with tooth pain and decay of the teeth. Some of the main causes of toothaches include decay, a fracture in the teeth, and cavities.  A crack in the tooth is also a cause, although it can be difficult to diagnose, as cracks will normally appear to be invisible to the naked eye and x-rays.  Cracks can make your tooth feel as if it is exploding, as they expose the dentin and nerves to the air and anything else you put in your mouth.  If you don’t have Sierra Vista AZ Dentist Dr Wolfington fixes these cracks, they will get worse, possibly leading to your tooth or teeth breaking off at the gums.

 Sierra Vista AZ Cochise Caring Dentistry

If you have an exposed root or nerve, it can also be the cause of your toothache.  This normally happens due to rough brushing, receding the gums and exposing the root.  If the root is exposed, the air or liquid you drink can trigger a toothache.  To prevent this from happening, use care when you brush and never try to tear your gums apart thinking it will get your teeth cleaner.

 Sierra Vista AZ Family Dentist

If you use tobacco products, you’ll more than likely get toothaches on a frequent basis.  Chewing tobacco is a common contributor to toothaches and tooth pain, as the tobacco will eat away at your teeth until there is nothing left.  It doesn’t take long for it to happen either, especially if you have been chewing for a long time.  Smoking can trigger toothaches as well, as the smoke is bad for your teeth and eats away at them as well.

 

Even though there are many causes to toothaches, there are things you can do to stop and pain and prevent toothaches.  You should always brush your teeth on a daily basis, and go visit Sierra Vista AZ Dentist Dr. Wolfington for your regular checkups.  If you get a toothache you should always go to the dentist and get the tooth fixed.  Dr. Wolfington may be able to catch it early enough to save the tooth – which will prevent you from having to get it pulled and save you a lot of money – and pain in the long run.

Sierra Vista AZ Dentist Cancer Examinations

Sierra Vista AZ Dentist

Sierra Vista AZ Dentist

Checking for oral cancer is routine in Sierra Vista AZ Dentist Dr. Wolfington’s dental examinations. Oral cancer appears as a growth or sore in the mouth that does not go away. Symptoms include numbness or pain in the face, throat, or neck and can lead to death. Regular checkups are important for early detection. Many symptoms that a Sierra Vista AZ dentist can spot, such as small red or white lesions in the mouth, are not likely noticeable to you in your own bathroom mirror. Be sure to call Cochise Caring Dentistry to schedule your painless routine check up to maintain overall health.

Symptoms of oral cancer may include:

  • Swellings, lumps, rough spots or eroded areas on the lips, gums, or other areas inside the mouth.
  • The development of white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth.
  • Unexplained bleeding in the mouth.
  • Loss of feeling, or pain/tenderness of the face, ears, neck, or mouth.
  • Persistent sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within 2 weeks.
  • A feeling that something is caught in the back of the throat.
  • Difficulty speaking, chewing or swallowing, or moving the jaw or tongue.
  • Hoarseness, chronic sore throat, or change in voice.
  • A change in the way your teeth or dentures fit together.
  • Dramatic weight loss.

Who Gets Oral Cancer?

According to the American Cancer Society, men face twice the risk of developing oral cancer as women. Men over age 50 face the greatest risk. It’s estimated by the Oral Cancer Foundation that 40,000 people will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer in 2012.

Risk factors may include:

  • Family history of cancer
  • Excessive sun exposure, especially at a young age.
  • Cigarette, cigar, or pipe smokers are six times more likely than nonsmokers to develop oral cancers.
  • Smokeless tobacco users. Users of chewing tobacco products are 50 times more likely to develop cancer of the gums, cheeks, and lining of the lips.
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol. Oral cancers are about six times more common in drinkers than nondrinkers.

It is important to note that over 25% of all oral cancers occur in people who do not smoke and who only drink alcohol on occasion.
