Can the dentist be affordable? A dental exam will cost you at least $50 in most states, with many approaching $80. For additional costs like x-rays and basic cleanings, a trip to the dentist can set you back nearly $300 if you don’t have any insurance.
Keep reading to learn how Kool Smiles makes quality dental care more affordable for everyone.
We value the importance of dental care, especially for children. And we also understand how the cost of a basic dental exam can weigh heavily on a family. Here’s how we make dental care more affordable for those who need it:
It’s recommended that everyone receives a dental exam every six months. During an exam, a dentist will check for tooth decay, the health of your gums, and signs of oral cancer, diabetes, and vitamin deficiencies.
Your dentist will also pay close attention to tartar and plaque buildup. He or she may check your saliva, tongue, bite, lymph nodes, and the movement of your jaw.
Poor dental health can lead to complications in other parts of your body, such as your heart, kidneys, and digestive system. A healthy body begins with a healthy mouth and a regular dental exam can help more than just your teeth.
Don’t let the price of a dental exam keep you from coming to a dentist. Find a Kool Smiles location near you or call us to make an appointment for a dental exam.
