Why Dental Work Is Worth The Investment
Many of our patients have been there at one time or another; They get the news that the dental treatment they need is going to cost them money. All of a sudden the new television or the vacation they had planned is competing with the price of a crown or dental implant. Given the choice, most people would probably put off the crown and book the vacation – But is skipping your recommended dental treatment really worth it? Here are a few reasons why it is better to go ahead and get the dental work done:
1. Effect On Your Quality of Life: If you have ever had a serious toothache then you know that it can make every minute miserable. Putting off recommended dental work will eventually result in pain and in larger (more expensive) problems down the road.
2. Self Confidence: Studies have shown that those with confident smiles are more likely to excel professionally and in relationships. Untreated dental work can make you less confident about your smile and therefore have a negative affect on both your work life and your personal life.
3. Prevent Future Problems: One untreated problem in your mouth today will cause a chain reaction of problems in the future. This may lead to more expense, more time and a lesser chance of saving your teeth.
Dental problems only tend to get worse with time, not better. As your Richmond dentist, we encourage you to make your dental health a priority and not put off dental work that has been recommended for you. We try to make dentistry as affordable as possible by offering payment plans and participating with a wide variety of insurance plans.
