How Avoiding Dental Care Can Up the Costs Down the Line

Posted on 7/10/2017 by Office
Davis Dental Practice provides a number of preventive dentistry services.
So, you think your teeth look great and are in really good shape. What possible reason do you have for visiting a dentist. You know you brush regularly, floss daily and eat healthy. You don't eat foods that can destroy your teeth, at least you think you don't, so there is no reason to go, right? You couldn’t be more wrong. Regular visits to the dentist can save you a lot of money down the line. Just because your teeth look good to you doesn’t mean you don’t have any problems. There are many dental issues that can’t be seen with the naked eye that if caught early, will save you not only money but time.

So Why Go to the Dentist?

The fact is that tooth decay doesn’t happen overnight and neither does gum disease They are both problems that take time to manifest themselves, at least to you. But your dentist can spot them fast. X-rays will show your dentist the very beginnings of tooth decay. If caught at the point when it is first starting, it can be treated with fluoride treatments if it is the surface of your tooth. A small filling can take care of decay on the chewing surface of your tooth and your dentist can determine that you have problems with your gums long before they start getting red and swelling.

If you wait until you can see that cavity or until it causes you pain when you drink hot or cold liquids, the cavity may have progressed to the point that you need a root canal or a crown instead of just a filling. The difference in cost between the two is definitely measurable. You aren’t talking about a few dollars here. No, you should see your dentist twice a year if you want to keep the costs down. Avoiding your dentist is like burning your dollars and throwing them in the trash. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (530) 756-5300.
