How to save money on dentistry

Dr. Jim Caudill - Dental Tips

Dentistry can be expensive. The good news is that most dental problems can be prevented. Cavities and gum disease can be prevented by brushing your teeth and flossing your teeth two times, every day. Avoid sweet snacks such as candy, soft drinks and bubble gum. Either brush your teeth or rinse your mouth with water after eating or drinking something sweet.

Get your teeth cleaned and a fluoride treatment every six months by your dentist to help prevent cavities and gum disease. Regular dental visits go along way toward preventing expensive dental treatment. Filling a small cavity is much cheaper than a root canal and a crown.

Prevent dental injuries by wearing an athletic mouthguard while playing sports. If you do get a permanent tooth knocked out, it is important to take the tooth in a cup of milk or water to the dentist within 30 minutes. Frequently, the tooth can be put back into the socket, and last for years.
