Keeping Future Dental Costs Economical and Affordable

Preventative care is our goal at Monterey Dental Contours. Prevention is truly the best cure when it comes oral health. The ultimate goal is to preserve as many of your original teeth as possible to keep long-term dental costs low. This includes regular X-rays to uncover tooth decay, and attempt to save the tooth. This means you are actually going to appointments for regular teeth cleaning. Affordable routine checkups will also help you prevent costs related to periodontal disease that affects the soft tissues of the mouth and causes tooth loss.

Our Membership Club Means No Surprises

If you have not had dental coverage for many years, you might have heavy build-up on your teeth. Sadly, instead of having deep cleaning covered by your annual exam, it might be an optional service you will pay for out-of-pocket. While there are some services that are more cost-effective to pay out-of-pocket, taking advantage of an affordable membership plan will keep these unexpected charges affordable.

How is Preventive Dental Defined?

The top authority for dentistry is the American Dental Association (ADA), and they have published a list of goals that each person should try to obtain. The ways the ADA insist is ideal for optimal dental health includes two dental appointments per year. Cleanings and X-rays should also be part of the bi-annual dentist appointment. During these appointments, other preventive services might be recommended. It is also important to write down anything the dentist says during your appointment about preventable habits. For example, they may point out that certain types of toothpaste ingredients are causing you to have gum inflammation. They will also let you know if smoking or sugar are preventable issues that are causing your tooth decay.
