Some people pay the price for ignoring dental health

Some people pay the price for ignoring dental health   

It's important for people to remember that having proper dental care habits not only reduces the risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay, but can also save individuals money in the long run. Visiting the dentist twice a year and maintaining basic oral health is far less expensive than replacing a lost tooth or undergoing an extensive procedure to cure dental disease.

"Knowing the basics of good oral hygiene can make a big difference in the health of your smile. By showing my patients the most effective ways to brush and floss now, helps them to avoid problems like cavities, plaque, tartar and gum disease later," said dentist Adam Burton.

So just how much can it cost for procedures to repair teeth? If a tooth is badly damaged or infected than a person may need a root canal, which can cost between $750 and $1,500, according to Rob Cardwell, D.D.S.

Some people have trouble affording dental care, especially if they don't have insurance. These individuals should look into discount dental plans, which can help people gain access to dentists for a fraction of the cost.
