4 Habits That Will Reduce the Cost of Your Dentistry

To some Calgarians, dentistry can seem to be very expensive. However, this does not have to be the case. By learning these four habits, you will develop a bright smile and reduce the total costs of your dental work.

The health of your teeth, gums, and mouth is one of the most critical aspects of your overall bodily wellness. What many people don't understand is that problems in your mouth can lead to complications in the rest of your body. The mouth is the first piece of your digestive tract, so if there are issues with your oral health, everything that follows the mouth will be affected by it.

Practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your NE Calgary dentist will lead to:

  • Lower long-term dentistry costs
  • Developing and maintaining a bright and beautiful smile
  • Lowering your risk for developing significant health conditions such as heart disease and gum disease
  • A lessened likelihood for developing oral-related cancers

4 Habits That Can Reduce the Total Cost of Your Dentistry

While there are clear benefits to oral hygiene, many find that dental work is too expensive. A good rule of thumb is that the healthier your teeth are, the less they will cost you at the dentist. By engaging in the following habits, you will start to notice immediate results via a healthier mouth, cleaner teeth, and lower dental bills.

1. Develop a Twice Daily Cleansing Routine

It may sound like the oldest adage out there, but brushing your teeth, flossing, and using mouthwash twice a day is the most important habit to maintain your oral health. The fact of the matter is, according to the Canadian Dental Association, around 27 per cent of all Canadians do not brush their teeth at least twice a day. By developing this healthy habit, your teeth and mouth will thank you with a brighter smile, healthier gums, and fewer dental emergencies.


2. Eat a Healthy Diet of Mouth-Friendly Foods

The food and drink that you put in your mouth have a massive effect on the health of your teeth and gums. Something that we have all been through is dealing with the temporary tooth stains that happen whenever we drink coffee or red wine. Aside from these obvious drinks, there are many other foods and beverages that positively and negatively impact our total oral health. Talk to your dentist about how your diet can affect your oral health and what foods and drinks they recommend to avoid.

3. Keep Hydrated Throughout the Day and Night

One of the methods that your body uses to protect your teeth is through your saliva. Saliva is a protective fluid that helps wash away excess food, old skin cells, and bacteria. Additionally, saliva helps your mouth maintain a neutral pH level, which helps to fight tooth decay. The primary component of saliva is water. Without enough water, your body will not be able to keep up with the saliva production required to maintain a healthy mouth. We recommend carrying a water bottle with you at all times throughout the day and keeping some extra water on your bedside table so that you can keep your saliva levels up throughout the night.

4. Regular Dental Checkups Will Save Costs in the Long Run

We get it, nobody enjoys going to the dentist. But regular dental checkups and cleanings are how your dentist can spot dental issues before they cause expensive procedures. The cost of one pricey dental surgery is many times the cost of your regular dental checkup. It may feel tempting to skip your routine dental cleaning if you do not see or feel any issues. However, cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease can creep up on you and be terrifyingly expensive to fix.
