Seeing a Dentist Saves Money and Time

Why It Matters

  • Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease. Over time, tooth decay can lead to cavities and even tooth loss. 9 out of 10 adults have some tooth decay.1
  • 164 million work hours are lost each year due to dental problems.1

What You Can Do

  • Prevent problems with dental cleanings twice a year. 45 minutes is the average length of time for one dental visit.
  • Your dentist can help you keep your teeth healthy and spot problems before they become bigger (and more expensive) problems. $1 spent preventing dental problems saves $8 to $50 in future dental costs.2
