Dental Work and the Cost of Waiting

April 25, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Barry Franzen @ 5:43 pm

The body has a miraculous way of healing itself. A fractured leg can grow back together. A strong immune system can fight off a cold. Yet there is one part of the body that cannot heal itself and that is the teeth. A cracked or broken tooth will not grow back. Gingivitis will not go away on its own. Stained teeth will not re-brighten themselves. This is what makes oral health so different from general health, and so critically important. If left unattended, tooth decay and other oral problems only get worse.

Even though dental care should be considered mandatory, it is also common knowledge that dental care can be expensive. Here is a problem many people face. Have you ever felt forced to forego much needed dental work because of the cost? Some people avoid the dentist entirely, thinking they cannot afford it, especially if they don’t have dental insurance.

We keep costs as reasonable as possible. We work with insurance companies and offer financing options. We encourage our patients to view their oral health as a long-term investment. In the long run, you will end up spending more by postponing needed dental work. By putting it off, the pain in your mouth and your bank account will increase as time passes.

When it comes to your oral health, it is always best to be preventive. By realizing the time versus money issue and taking action now, you can actually save yourself more money than insurance can. Even if you don’t have insurance, isn’t it better to pay $150 today than $3000 a year from now?

Rather than feeling scared or angry about dental expenses, try to see your smile as an asset, something to invest in. Think of your life five years from now and how much you are saving yourself by acting today. For more information on our services and answers to your common questions, please see:
