A Preventative Approach Saves You Money
If you own a vehicle, you likely have it serviced at recommended intervals to keep it operating at its peak. For example, your automobile manufacturer probably recommends that you get your engine oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles. But what if you put that service off and waited till say 10,000 miles between oil changes?
Not only would your car experience more wear and tear but the engine oil would progressively get dirtier causing a sludgy buildup in your engine. If you put off recommended oil changes for too long the engine parts could wear out and need replacing. Or, you may need to get a new transmission, which is pricey. Contrast that cost to that of a routine oil change, which is only about $30.
The same can be said for your teeth. If you put off getting routine dental care for one or more years, you may eventually need more expensive and extensive “repairs” than would have been required had you kept your regular visits.
