For the equivalent cost of a coffee (or a movie ticket, a few cigarettes, a drink, some itunes etc) per week, many patients can afford to maintain a healthy mouth.
Setting aside such an amount per week may well pay for preventive dental care: a regular exam, cleanings and x rays. Together with good home oral health care habits, this is usually all that most patients need once any initial tooth and gum problems have been successfully treated. Oral health is part of general health. How can you not afford it?
for prevention – preventive dental care reduces stress, time off work,
dental bills and saves your teeth and gums. Preventive dental care is
all about preventing problems in the first place. It is like having a
WoF for your teeth.
