Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter, Florida
Having dental insurance, of course, makes going to the dentist more affordable. However, many people do not have dental insurance, forgoing dental visits altogether, which only makes matters worse. Even if you do not have dental insurance, you should still make going to the dentist a priority.
Routine dental checkups and cleanings do a lot for your mouth, and your oral health. Removing tartar buildup will help lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Even with your best efforts, brushing and flossing alone is not enough to keep your mouth healthy. Only a professional dental cleaning can completely remove plaque and tartar buildup around your teeth.
This buildup is inevitable from the foods we eat, and beverages that we drink. It harbors bacteria that erode tooth enamel, leading to cavities. By letting tartar buildup reside in your mouth, you will eventually end up paying more for dental care, or worse, losing your teeth! So, these routine visits to the dentist will end up saving you money in the long run. Spend a little now, save a lot later.
If you know that you will have to pay out-of-pocket for your dental care, be sure to take steps now toward saving and budgeting for the expense. Set aside a little bit of money each week, enough to pay for your cleanings and checkups. If you wish to undergo cosmetic dental work, know that you have options. Many dental offices, such as PGA Smiles, offer low-interest, or interest-free financing. This payment option is ideal for patients undergoing extensive dental treatments that are too costly to pay upfront.
At PGA Smiles, we offer a broad range of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, as well as preventive care for patients of all ages. Contact our office at (561) 627-7090 to schedule an appointment.
