Visit the dentist. Your wallet will thank you.
While scheduling regular visits to the dentist might not be number one on most people’s lists of fun activities, good oral health is an important step toward obtaining optimum overall health. If that’s not enough incentive, did you know that regular dental visits will save you money in the long run?
While there are some costs associated with preventive dental care, and those costs are higher if you don’t carry insurance, they are nothing when compared with the cost of treating serious dental issues, such as tooth decay and periodontal disease.
These serious problems generally worsen over time due to poor oral health care. Left untreated, extreme cases of tooth decay and gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Once lost, teeth must be replaced with dentures or implants. Neither option is as affordable as practicing good oral hygiene in the first place.
In addition, missing teeth can eventually lead to bone loss in the jaw, and poor oral health can be a factor in the onset or complications of other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and pregnancy complications. All of these issues can negatively impact your quality of life and your finances.
Regular visits ensure that any potential problems are caught early, allowing for treatment while the problems are still relatively minor. Even better, regular treatment means that such problems are less likely to develop in the first place.
