Preventative Dental Care in Anchorage

Your Preventative Dental Options in Anchorage

Preventative Dentistry is quite simply the practice of proactively caring for your teeth to keep them healthy and looking their best. This means taking basic care of your teeth and gums to avoid cavity, gum disease, enamel loss, gingivitis, and more. While there are many forms of preventive dentistry such as daily brushing and the use of floss and mouthwash to maintain optimal health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals as determined by your dentist. Preventative dentistry focuses on being proactive, taking steps before issues emerge to keep your teeth clean, strong and looking their best.

Preventative dental care is the cornerstone of Delaney Park Dental. This is because it is the best way to keep your mouth healthy and prevent future issues. Our very own Dr. Miles went in for a preventative care visit when he was 21 in which they discovered the presence of a tumor in his jaw. His personal experience is what has motivated him to educate the importance of preventative dental care to his community.

How Preventative Dentistry in Anchorage Can Save You Money

Poor dental hygiene can cost you, both health-wise and financially. The costs associated with not taking care of your teeth can add up quickly, even with the supplemental support of dental insurance. While preventative measures cannot eliminate the need for corrective dental procedures, they can go a long way to reduce the potential of requiring them.

Some of the most common dental procedure required due to a lack of preventative dentistry include:

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is used to repair infected teeth. The canals in the root of the tooth are cleaned out and sealed. The average cost of a root canal varies based on which tooth is infected and what part of the country you reside in, but these are some ballpark figures to give you an idea:

  • Front (anterior) tooth $600 – $900

  • Bicuspid tooth $700 – $1,000

  • Molar tooth $1,000 – $1,400

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are often used following a root canal. They protect teeth that have been chipped or broken. Crowns are often made out of ceramic or metal and can range in price anywhere from $900 all the way up to $1,700 in special cases.

Dental Fillings and Repairs

Dental fillings, also called tooth fillings or cavity fillings are used as a restorative dental procedure to restore parts of the tooth that have been damaged by tooth decay. Dental fillings on average can cost anywhere from $125-$400.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction involves the removal of the tooth right from its socket. Teeth can be extracted if they are badly decayed or damaged due to trauma.

Why Being Proactive With Your Dental Health is the Best Strategy

Aside from the costs of treating dental problems and issues, investing time and energy in being proactive will help reduce your need for dental visits and any time spent in the dentist’s chair. While it is impossible to avoid visiting the dentist entirely, the use and practice of preventative dentistry is a sure-fire way to give yourself a lifetime of healthy gums and teeth.

The best time to start becoming proactive about your dental health was when your teeth first began to come in, but even if you’ve spent a lifetime not being proactive about your dental health, there’s no time like the present. Investing in a quality toothbrush, flossing and checkups with your dentist are crucial to regaining dental health and wellness. There is no such thing as “being too late” to start taking care of your teeth. For parents, teaching their children about dental hygiene and the importance of brushing and flossing will not only set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles and teeth but also reduce the risk for tooth decay and gum disease later in life. Not only will their teeth thank you, but their wallets will as well.
