We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

How You Save Money by Having a Healthy Smile

Posted on 2/20/2019 by Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry
How You Save Money by Having a Healthy SmileThese days, everyone is looking to save money so that they can do the things they want to do; take a vacation, buy something special, or treat their kids to an amusement park. Dental work can add up quickly. If you are not careful, your dental expenses can add up to thousands of dollars.

How do you prevent spending that kind of money on your teeth? Preventative maintenance, of course. Just as doing preventative maintenance for your car prevents thousands of dollars of damages, good oral care saves you money in the long run.

How to Care for Your Teeth, Long Term

One of the first things you need to do to care for your teeth is to brush and floss every day. Twice daily brushing and flossing can go a long way towards preventing cavities, because brushing and flossing works to minimize the amount of acid on your teeth, which works to lessen the chances you will have a cavity.

In addition to brushing and flossing, scheduling regular dental visits will also save you money in the long run. If you visit the dentist for regular checkups every six months, you can accomplish a couple of objectives. First, you'll be able to get your teeth super clean, which will blast away any plaque you did not catch with your brushing and flossing.

Second, your dentist will be able to check your teeth and make sure that you don't have any minor problems that may become majorly expensive problems if they aren't fixed. It may be that your dentist could find a minor flaw, such as a cavity, that can be quickly taken care of.

If you're not sure how to keep small dental problems from becoming big, expensive dental problems, why not give us a call today? We can be a big part of your overall dental health plan.
