A recent article in a leading magazine wrote about many families having financial concerns when they think about dental care. When the economy is in the state that it is in today, it is very easy to put off going to the dentist. Understandably because many people have lost dental insurance benefit due to unemployment. But 1/3 of adults who have dental insurance stated that they had not gone to the dentist and avoided necessary care in over 12 months because of the cost according to poll reports.
We at Balfour Dental have found that it is important to catch when they are small and inexpensive to treat, rather than placing them on the back burner and waiting for something to hurt. When things hurt it is inevitably harder to treat and always costs more money to fix.
Good homecare and regular cleanings can prevent most dental problems and dental insurance generally covers cleaning and check-ups at 100%. If there is no insurance a check-up and cleaning can cost as little as a dollar a day which is probably the best investment you can make.
