At Artistic Touch Dentistry, we’d like to remind you that investing in your oral health is a cost-saving expenditure. It turns out that investing in your smile can reduce your total health care costs in both the short- and long-term.
People with chronic conditions who received preventive care and treatment of gum disease have medical and dental claims an average of more than $1,000 lower per year than claims for chronically ill people who did not receive that type of oral care. When people with diabetes are treated for accompanying gum disease, for example, those people saved $1,300 a year in medical costs. For the cost of your dental copay, that’s a winning return on investment!
In addition, consider the dividends paid by a warm and inviting smile. Better opportunity in the workplaces, more opportunity to strike up friendships and partnerships, and overall positive impressions in daily living. A beautiful smile both saves money and creates opportunity to earn more wealth.
The connection between oral care and total body health is physical and financial. In order to preserve your total body health and reduce the total cost of your health care over your lifetime, invest in dental health and oral care.
