I was asked this question at a birthday gathering while the debt ceiling was being determined by our government. In this economy, people, including our patients, have all shared the same concerns: How can we save and conserve our finances? In terms of dental care, here are a few penny pinching tidbits.
In maintaining your oral hygiene and following this dietary advice, you can avoid costly dental problems. If you currently have cavities, addressing them now will prevent them from growing into larger and costly treatment. Allowing a cavity to grow larger leads to root canals and worst yet extractions. The treatment necessary to address these advanced issues leads to higher expense. Maintaining your oral hygiene and regular check ups can decrease your overall expense in the long run.
