No, this is not about your discounted dental network. It is MUCH more important to you. Read on to find out how to save, not only your money, but your time and dread of the dental visit. I know most all dentists (myself included) take much care at making you comfortable in the dental chair, but let’s face it…you could name a million places you’d rather be!
With that said, let’s move on to “How to Really Save on Your Dental Bill”. Here is my Top 10 list:
- TAKE CHARGE! Your mouth is a very important part of your body. If you don’t have healthy gums and teeth, your body isn’t totally healthy. Sometimes the dentist is the first one to discover signs that you may be at risk for disease in other parts of your body. The mouth houses many types of bacteria. Some of these bacteria cause tooth decay or gum disease. Gum disease may be connected with diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Get that dental exam with x-rays. You want to know where you are along the oral health scale. From there, you can make a plan to take control and responsibility for your dental health. Your dentist can give you a diagnosis and help with your plan as much as you want him/her to do so. Think of your dentist as your partner in achieving excellent oral health.
SAVING$: Find problems early so treatment will not be complicated and expensive. Regular checkups & cleanings with any necessary preventative products $200-500/year vs $$$ thousands of dollars for dental treatment that can be prevented. Prevention is ALWAYS cheaper and painless!
