What is Medicaid?

Medicaid is a program that is designed to provide necessary care for families who are considered “low-income.” Private insurance is often costly, so by enrolling in Medicaid, you can breathe easier knowing that you can take better care of your child’s oral health. Because these funds are provided by the state and federal governments, Medicaid is only available for families that fall into a specific income bracket. It doesn’t matter how old your child is, seeing a Medicaid dentist is a great way to ensure their teeth and gums are protected while setting them up on the path to better oral health as they grow.

What is CHIP?

For families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private dental insurance, the CHIP program (Children’s Health Insurance Program) can make a difference. Children who are covered through this program must be under the age of 18 and a legal resident of Texas/US citizen. By avoiding high costs that can otherwise come right out of your pocket, the CHIP program will lower your expenses and help your little one receive the preventive care they need to enjoy healthy teeth and gums.

Medicaid and CHIP for Dental Care

Preventive care is the most pivotal aspect of ensuring better oral health. By catching problems early on, we can help you and your child avoid more timely and costly procedures later on. Some of the available services we provide at Renaissance Dental include:

If you’re worried that your child needs restorative or emergency dental care and you won’t be able to cover the cost, do not worry. Our team of qualified experts will work with you to identify ways in which we can lower your costs and make treatment more affordable.

Why Prevention Matters

Cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath are all problems that can develop at an early age. Instilling positive oral health habits in your children from the time they are infants and toddlers will do wonders for their smiles later on in life. But brushing and flossing at home isn’t enough. Seeing a professional who can check and clean their smile every six months is imperative, which is why Medicaid and CHIP are great for families who are on a tight budget. Not only will your child get the necessary dental care they deserve, but you’ll breathe easier knowing that any present problems can be treated early on, minimizing the potential risk for more serious procedures later on.
