Millions of Americans don’t have dental insurance and many California employer plans have limited benefits. Some San Diego residents who don’t receive adequate dental care believe that “it’s too expensive.” If you make an average income, you can probably shift your priorities to invest in an excellent San Diego Dentist who can give you a healthy smile.
Where Did All That Money Go?
You have probably heard of the “Latte Factor” which refers to the surprising amount of income you spend on frivolous things, such as caffeinated beverages every morning. Even if you don’t drink coffee, you probably have a personal habit that costs a few dollars daily, but adds up to hundreds of dollars a year. Soda, beer, an eight-dollar deli sandwich, or a game of golf. How about the amount of money you spend on personal grooming such as manis, pedis, facials, and professional hair coloring. What about the cash you spend for convenience – pizza delivery, ATM fees, microwaved meals. How much do you spend on premium cable, video game rentals, full-price movies, and season tickets to San Diego sporting events?

If you have foregone dental exams, cleanings and treatments because you think it’s too pricey, we hope this Marcos Ortega DDS dental blog post has opened your eyes to purchases that may be far less important than a healthy smile. Remember, if you ignore dental problems, eventually they will require more extensive treatments. Filling a cavity is relatively inexpensive, a root canal costs more, and a dental implant is a major investment. What is a tooth worth to you? According to our San Diego dentist, every single one is priceless. And don’t forget that dental problems impact the health of your entire body.
