It’s common for people to avoid going to the dentist entirely because they don’t think the investment is necessary, especially if they don’t feel any pain or have an urgent dental issue. They also might not visit if they’ve already been once before and think they’re good for the whole year.
We at Pasadena Family Dentistry want to let you in on a valuable secret: the key to saving money on dental costs is 100% through prevention.
This means that visiting our practice just twice a year allows us to catch issues before they become serious. Think about it. You could spend a couple hundred dollars on exams and cleanings twice a year, and you’ve effectively completed the hardest step in prevention: early detection.
Compare those two dental visits to a rush to the emergency room due to a dental infection that could have been prevented or the cost of periodontal treatment for your underlying gum disease! Good home care together with two dental visits a year, you’ll save much more!
According to data from Cigna, every dollar spent on preventive dental care could save between $8 and $50 in restorative and emergency treatments.
