Dentistry can be very expensive.  People often make the assumption that insurance will cover their treatment or will give them the best dental care possible.  Unfortunately that is not the case.
Patients should look at their mouth as an investment.  Your mouth needs daily care, maintenance and the occasional upgrade.  Would you buy an expensive car and never take care of it!  Some mouths need more attention that others do; it’s just the way it is.
There are many things you can do to spend less time and money in the dental chair:
·Brush twice a day and floss once everyday!
·Don’t smoke.
·Wear your night guard.
·Wear a sports guard.
·Use fluoride.
·Visit your hygienist and dentist regularly.  Of course this can cost you money but being preventative and finding things early is cheaper than letting it go.
