How can I make dental care more affordable?

Prevention is Key

The most effective way to manage dental care costs is prevention: Make a commitment to the number of exams and cleanings Dr. Maher and your hygienist recommend for you and follow the recommended daily maintenance routine. For most patients, two exams and cleanings per year are recommended (and are what most insurance plans cover) as well as a daily brushing and flossing regimen.

In addition, delaying needed care or treatment for your oral health may increase the risk of more intensive – and more costly – procedures. For example, a diagnosis of a cavity left untreated may develop more extensive decay, leading to the necessity of root canals and/or crowns. Following Dr. Maher's and your hygienist’s recommendations for your dental care will keep treatment costs down.
