Prevention Visits Can Save You Money on Dental Treatment

If you've looked at your bank balance recently and are feeling the crunch of the economy (who isn't?), you should keep things in perspective when prioritizing your expenses. You can minimize your dental expenses by making sure you stay on track with preventive visits. This is the best way to control and limit potentially expensive dental treatments. A couple hundred dollars for a thorough exam and cleaning visit is far more frugal than neglecting your visits and ending up in the dental chair with an emergency that could result in more expensive treatments such as root canals and crowns--which can be $1000-$2000, loss of the tooth, and then replacements with bridges or implants.

Early detection of developing decay and gum disease is another vital element of prevention visits. It's been estimated that your regular attendance at the dental office for check-ups can reduce your overall health care costs by 20%.
