I’ve heard it more times than I can count: “I just can’t afford a trip to the dentist right now!” Unfortunately, too often routine preventative care could have helped a patient avoid more invasive and corrective procedures. When your teeth are neglected, you can experience numerous other health problems, as well.
Most patients need to have a tooth cleaning every three months; this will help reduce the chance of gingivitis and gum disease with tartar and plaque removal. You should also have a check up every three months to look for cavities or any other impending problems. Put these services off for too long, and you could end up with extensive dental work.
Of course, we understand the need to work within a family budget. While it may be more convenient to take all of your kids to the dentist on the same day, scheduling checkups for one family member each month can help spread out the costs. You can also count on our staff to help you come up with a plan for your family’s dental care that will meet your needs.
