Know the Value of Your Tooth

Posted by Dr. Lee on Aug 2 2019, 09:00 AM

Kids have a fascination to wait for the tooth fairy after losing a tooth. They wait for that one dollar in anticipation while keeping their tooth under the pillow. But as the milk teeth come off and a new set of permanent teeth grow, the cost of maintaining and repairing teeth rise and get a place in the household budget. But is it not better to invest money rather than go around with poor oral health?

Oral health is an important phenomenon that needs good care since your smile impacts your appearance. Taking preventive measures is a better option since they can result in you saving a tooth instead of losing it permanently. In certain cases, a tooth reaches a point where there is no return and must be taken out to solve the problem.

Cost of Restoration

There may be times when you might fall off your bike or hit a table and get a broken tooth. Such small accidents are always surprising, and you may never know what damage they might do to you. Losing a permanent tooth can hamper your appearance as well as make you less confident to smile.

Tooth restorations, crowns, dental implants, oral veneers, and restorative treatments are as costly as other medical procedures. So, it is better to take care of your teeth and prevent them from damage to reduce expenses in the long run.

Take Care of Your Teeth and Prevent From Damage

“Prevention is better than cure”, we all know it but do we treat our body that way? Although unfortunate accidents are unforeseen and nothing can be done to prevent them, preventable problems should be taken care of beforehand. Follow the below-given tips to prevent your teeth from known damage.

  • Remember to brush your teeth every day in the morning and night before bed. You can brush thrice daily, using only plain water to brush in the afternoon.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste to prevent cavities, as it has been proved the best by dentists worldwide.
  • Floss regularly with flossing strings, and rinse your mouth thoroughly to remove leftover food debris.
  • Avoid sticky and sugary food since they stick to your teeth and are hard to remove. Try to avoid candies, sweets, gum, soda, juice, and such to keep your teeth healthy.
