If you’ve heard it once you’ve probably heard it a thousand times… Brush and floss your teeth daily. But do you realize this is also an excellent way to save you money?
When you take preventative care of your teeth, you are saving money against future dental visits. It is much less expensive to pay for a cleaning that it is to pay for a cavity filling or a root canal. And it is just simple daily dental practice that make the difference.
Simply by rushing and flossing daily, you can avoid future expenses such as gum disease or even dentures. And especially with kids, particularly ones who tend to have higher amounts of sugar in their diets, make sure it is a practice they do at least twice a day.
Do your kids balked at brushing and flossing daily? It is worth the extra pennies to buy the fancy sparkle toothpaste or watermelon flavored dental floss than it is to have to pay for expensive dental care. So even though you may be spending an extra $10 or $15 a year buying the kid-appealing dental items, that $10 or $15 is nothing in comparison to $1000 dental bill.
