Inexpensive Dental Care in Columbus OhioBecky | July 3, 2012
Some say that dental care is expensive. A toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss can provide you with excellent inexpensive dental care but YOU have to use them. Neglecting your teeth for years can cause a lot of expensive dental repairs to get your mouth healthy.
We had a patient(let’s call her Sandy) come in this week that had been going to the dentist about once per year so they were doing better than a lot of folks. Sandy had been diagnosed with some fillings and a crown about 5 years ago but hadn’t done anything about the dental problems. Sandy was one of the lucky ones that had $1000 per year in dental benefits. The majority of the dental benefits went unused for 5 years except for a cleaning here and there.
Sandy came to Grandview Dental Care because she was having some pain. Turns out that one of those teeth that needed a filling, now needed a crown because the decay had gotten much bigger. She also needed a root canal. Sandy urgently wanted this taken care of because she was in pain. We were able to get her out of pain quickly but Sandy wasn’t happy with herself. She could have used $1000 of her dental benefits over a period of several years and 1) the pain would have not happened because the problem would have been fixed before the pain stage 2) She wouldn’t have so much to pay out of pocket.
The majority of dental problems to a certain degree are preventable. Brushing and flossing the right way can go a long way in keeping your teeth healthy. Don’t overlook these easy step for yourself or your kids. It makes a big difference in several areas including your pocketbook.
Don’t neglect your teeth. You want to keep them for a lifetime. Take care of them and it all starts with you. Brush and floss your teeth everyday and see your favorite Columbus Cosmetic dentist on a regular basis and you will be surprised at how much money you saved on your dental care.
