Rumour is something that spreads easily like a wildfire from person to person. Unfortunately it may or may not be true and people start believing strongly in rumours even without verifying the facts. "Dentistry is expensive" is one such rumour that interrupts in early evaluation and treatment of dental diseases.
This question arises in everyone's mind whether meeting a dentist will really be an expensive deal? My answer to such questions is "NO".
Considering the natural human tendency, majority of people do not reach out for medical help until and unless diseases become painful and unbearable or unless things become aggravated and complicated. In such situations multiple procedures need to be done making the treatments a little expensive and lengthy.
REMEMBER : IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR YOUR TEETH TO PAIN FOR TAKING TREATMENT, THEN IT IS SURELY GOING TO BE AN EXPENSIVE AFFAIR.
Majority of India's population fail in maintaining oral hygiene. Dental hygiene and dental health is the most neglected one. There is low rate of awareness and high rate of believing in rumours. Home remedies fail to cure dental diseases, on the contrary home remedies lead to acute exacerbation of dental diseases.
At least in India, dentistry is not at all expensive. The concept of DENTAL TOURISM works powerfully in India. People from worldwide come to India to get dental treatments done as its extremely cheap here and still the quality is not hampered.
So always understand the facts before trusting the rumours. Remember "DENTISTRY IS NOT EXPENSIVE, NEGLECT IS".
