Ignoring dental health could lead to serious costs  

Taking care of oral health now can help an individual avoid paying for expensive procedures later. That was the message behind a recent article published on Seacoast Online. The news source spoke to some Pennsylvania dentists about why taking the time to care for teeth now will pay off in the long run.

Dentistry, like most other professions, experienced a loss of revenue during the recession. As people lost their jobs, they found themselves without access to oral care. According to Wesley Mills, D.D.S., people need to make dental health a priority as soon as they notice there is a problem.

"Something that could be a simple fix might cost you far more money and be extensive," said Mills, quoted by a news source. "The [thing] that [has] value to us is really our health. It doesn't break the bank to stay up on that. It's a good investment."

One example of the cost of avoiding dental care is that oral health problems, if left unchecked, may lead to lost teeth. states that a basic implant to replace a tooth can cost between $1,250 and $3,000.
