October is National Dental Hygiene Month. We think making sure that mouth of yours is clean (and healthy) on the regular is worth celebrating! Keeping your oral health on track is a great way to keep bacteria at bay. One way to take care of your mouth is by keeping up with your regular dental appointments to reduce your risk of developing gum disease, cavities, and other oral health problems.
The Cost Saving Benefits of Preventative Treatment
A dental hygiene appointment allows the team at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville to not only clean your teeth but it can help you avoid really big oral health issues down the road through early detection. Americans spent a total of $124 billion on dental care in 2017, according to the American Dental Association. A large portion of this total, however, went toward expensive restorative treatments that could have been avoided
Dental problems can certainly develop between visits, but early detection and correction means far less invasive (and less expensive) treatments are needed. We are able to detect disease and conditions like TMJ disorder before they become harder to treat or cause irreversible damage to your teeth and gums. Untreated gum disease and periodontal disease often lead to tooth extraction followed by dental implants, bridges or crowns. We are proud of the restorative treatments we can offer our patients, but they are far more expensive than the cost of routine dental cleanings!
