Has this ever happened to you? You visit your dentist believing you only have a cavity or two when your dentist informs you of the bad news that a more costly treatment is necessary such as a root canal, a crown, or that several old fillings have deteriorated and need to be replaced….
Your first reaction can quite often be summed up by “What do I do? I didn’t anticipate such an expense!”.
First and foremost, don’t panic; consider the importance of healthy teeth and gums - of a healthy smile.
Secondly, don’t believe that you are the only one to not have been able to foresee such a situation. A patient in her late 20’s suffered from constant migraines and earaches for several very long months. Her family doctor referred her for a complete dental exam. The main cause of her pain and discomfort stemmed from dental problems and the treatment costs amounted to more than a few thousand dollars. A treatment plan was formulated with the patient which allowed the patient to finally find, once again, a quality of life that she had not had for a long time.
Studies continually show that your dental health directly impacts on many aspects of your general health such as heart disease, diabetes and respiratory problems. In addition, nutrition and the ability to eat healthy foods are very intimately associated with good health. Oral cancer exams and the ability to detect cancers in earlier stages can be lifesaving services which your dentist performs at little or no charge.
A healthy smile is invaluable and yet thousands of dollars are spent on things that are less meaningful. There is so much necessity and value in your dental visit and treatments. Can you really afford to neglect them? Don’t disregard your health and ability to enjoy a good quality of life.
