The maintenance of your teeth is of utmost importance to your general health. Many medical conditions are worsened in patients that also have poor dental hygiene. Although dentistry can be expensive, keeping up good oral hygiene and doing preventative treatments and maintenance is less expensive than emergency dental treatment that usually results poorer outcomes and worse tooth health overall.
We think that it goes without saying that having healthy teeth is important. You dentist plays a role in helping you achieve that goal, BUT don't forget about the important role that YOU have in ensuring a healthy mouth. That is something worth smiling about.
Affordable dentistry is not avoiding dental treatment, but incorporating dental treatment in a preventative dental plan. Seeing your Victoria dentist and hygienist can actually SAVE you money in the long run. There are also the great "side-effects" of having teeth that are healthy, free of pain or infection, and fresher breath. Scheduling a teeth cleaning and check-up every six months. Depending on the health of your teeth and gums, your dentist may recommend more frequent cleanings, especially if there are early signs of gum disease.
In the short term, if you have dental problems or pain then you will need to see a dentist for treatment. The sooner you visit your dentist the better, and the more options you will have for treatment. If you visit before the problem becomes severe, it is more likely that a less costly option will be available to solve your dental issue. Your Victoria dentist should be able to give you a number of options for how to treat your concerns in regards to a specific problem or in terms of your life long dental goals. Of course the cost of the treatment will vary. However, it is our obligation to give you as many reasonable options as possible, from the most basic to the most involved. You can then decide together with your dentist which option suits you and your finances the best. One of our goals is to provide premium dental care at non-premium prices, so call your Victoria dentist to schedule an appointment today.
