When it comes to visiting the dentist, you know you are supposed to schedule an appointment for a regular cleaning and checkup twice a year. Regular appointments are essential to protecting your oral health from damage. In addition, it allows us to detect oral complications early to prevent the problem from becoming worse. As a Nashville dentist, we understand many are not able to visit the dentist regularly due to the cost of care, especially those who are uninsured. To make going to the dentist easier, we offer discount dental plans for preventive care.
Affordable Dental Care for the Whole Family
As a family dentist, we do not want to see your family suffer the consequences from lack of preventive care due to financial burden. We strive to make dental care easier and more accessible for all patients with affordable dental plans.
Visiting the Dentist Regularly
More than 50 percent of those who are uninsured do not visit the dentist regularly due to the cost of care. Uninsured patients largely account for the 34 percent of people who did not visit the dentist at all last year. 75 percent of adult Americans suffering from a form of gum disease according to the American Dental Hygienist Association. Many of these cases could have been prevented with regular dental appointments.
Adults are not the only people to suffer from lack of dental care due to cost. One in five American children go without dental care due to the cost. As a result, only 48 percent of children who enter kindergarten have visited the dentist in the past year. The lack of regular cleanings largely accounts for the 52 percent of children six to eight years old have tooth decay. With tooth decay the most preventable disease in children, it is essential your child visits the dentist regularly to protect their teeth.
