At first glance these two topics seem unrelated. How does the economy affect gum disease? It's simple. As prices rise higher and higher on basic necessities such as food and fuel, the natural tendency is to "put off" other purchases to another time. It's understandable and everyone on a budget does it. We take our vacation days at home rather than traveling. We don't visit restaurants like we used to. It's basic Economics 101. However, if you've been diagnosed with gum disease, one thing you should never "put off" is treatment. Here's why, gum disease will not get better over time, it will only get worse resulting in pain and tooth loss. Even more serious, recent medical research suggests a link between gum disease and grave health conditions such as heart disease and stroke. Speaking medically and economically, it never pays to postpone the treatment. The cost truly out weighs the shot term savings. So how do you work the treatment into your budget? Well, at Ameridontics, the doctors offer a range of payment plans for patients that result in low monthly payments. Treating your gum disease is an important investment in your over-all health. Please don't "put it off"
