The Economics of Prevention
Our goal is to help you have the best possible oral health for a lifetime. But for some of our patients, only the high cost of repair is a motivator to adopt preventative habits. They know that the longer they wait, the more dental repairs will cost.
Decay in one tooth, if left untreated, will spread. Instead of one filling, you’ll likely need a full crown, increasing the cost by more than six times. Further delays could result in root canal treatment- an even more expensive procedure. The early stages of gum disease are easy to treat with dental intervention and home care. Without these simple therapies, it can result in tooth loss and prosthetic options requiring a considerable investment of time and money.
It is never too late to start a preventative oral health program. We can develop a treatment plan with you because prevention is the best investment!
