Prevention is Your Best Protection

Smiling Family of ThreeIf you’re like the rest of us, now that belt-tightening is the “new normal,” you may already be eating more meals at home, dropping subscriptions, vacationing closer to home. You may also be tempted to cut back on your dental care.

But think it over. If a problem has surfaced with your oral health, nipping it in the bud is a big money saver. Letting it go can mean big, costly—and sometimes painful—treatment down the line. You’re smarter than that.

During your appointment, we’ll check for tooth decay, of course, but also for periodontal disease, not only to protect your teeth and gums but to keep you alive and healthy. Yes, there’s a direct link between gum disease and your chance of stroke or heart disease. No matter how diligent you are about brushing and flossing, periodontal disease can sneak in when you least expect it. Save time, save money—keep your regular check-ups.
