The True Cost of a Cavity

piggybankDid you know that the cost of a cavity over a lifetime can run as much as $2,000?* Fortunately, most cavities can be avoided with easy and routine preventive care:

• Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
• Brush your teeth twice daily – be sure to brush along the gumline.
• Floss daily to remove plaque from places your brush can’t reach. The best time to floss is before bedtime.
• Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which may contribute to gum disease.

*A study conducted by Delta Dental Plans Association found that the average cost to maintain a restored cavity in the molar of a 10-year-old reaches $2,187 by the time he or she is 79.
