In the meantime, keep reading to see why these kind of services are worth it in the long run.

You’ve Probably Got It Coming

If you have dental insurance through your employer, you are, in effect, already paying for dental care whether you take advantage of it or not. You see, most plans in the U.S. will cover much or all of the cost of two cleanings and checkup exams per calendar year. If you never make an appointment withour friendly team, that will be your loss, because insurance is usually a lose it or lose it deal, when it comes to services received. Our advice is to not lose what you’ve paid for out of your hard-earned salary, especially when it is related to maintaining your oral health.

The Value Of Preventive Care

With or without dental insurance, routine cleanings and exams are invaluable for your long-term oral health and the appearance of your smile. Things can go awry quickly, which can lead to expensive and invasive treatment plans, down the road.

Here’s the thing: even if you are diligent about brushing (twice a day, two minutes each session) and flossing as often as you ought to, there is always a chance you can miss some spots, which could lead to plaque and tartar buildup. We’ll take care of this oversight whenenver you come see us for a professional teeth cleaning, and that easy step will greatly reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease.

During your exam, we’ll make use of new technology to find any emerging problems that could pose more trouble if left unattended. Digital X-rays, the DIAGNOdent cavity detector, and our intraoral cameras give us multiple ways to find decay and gum infections in the early stages, when they are easier to treat.

In addition to dental exams and dental cleanings, we also offer other preventive solutions aimed at preserving your family’s oral health, including: dental sealants, fluoride treatments, fluoride varnishes, nutritional counseling, and so forth.

Don’t worry, if you don’t have dental insurance at the moment, you might be relieved to know that we offer an in-house payment plan for qualified patients that can help keep your routine dental costs manageable and within your monthly budget at any given time. According to most reports, too many Americans lack access to preventive dental care, and we are trying to change that in our community.
