There is a common misconception that if you don’t have any pain or discomfort going on within your mouth, that you must not have any cavities. However, there can sometimes be the start of a cavity that only a dentist can detect through an X-ray, and leaving these tiny cavities could mean a much more costly treatment down the road …not to mention sudden and inconvenient pain.
So at DentistsRUs, we want to share with you ‘The Cost Effective Nature of Caring for Cavities’…
Be Sure to Maintain Your Dental Checkups
By maintaining your dental checkups, you can better ensure you are cavity-free by getting your teeth cleaned and cared for on a regular basis. Foregoing your dental checkups will prolong the care of any cavities that are so far flying under the radar, where a quick treatment could keep your costs down and your treatment time minimal.
Curb Root Canals by Treating Cavities
Once the bacteria from a cavity gets down into the root of your tooth, the decay begins to eat at this vital part of your tooth structure, creating a far more costly and time-consuming treatment. So guard against this by regular visits and addressing any cavities right away.
Brush to Minimize Cavity Causing Bacteria
Although we often think of sugar as the white, granulated kind, there is actually sugar in most things. From bread to beans, fruits to vegetables, both natural and added sugars will mix with the bacteria in your mouth, eventually creating an acid, which can eat away at your tooth enamel and begin to create cavities.
This is why it is not only important to brush after a heavy dose of sugar-laced food or drink products, but also to brush, floss and rinse after each meal. Carbs turn to plaque that turn into acid …so lower your costs of cavity care by brushing regularly.
