Poor dental hygiene can easily lead to painful and costly dental emergencies. Reduce how often you must go to the dentist by brushing and flossing every day. Also, try eating a couple almonds every other hour to reduce acidity in your mouth—high acidity causes dental issues. Sip on water throughout the day to prevent dry mouth and stagnant bacteria. All these little things add up. The better care you take of your teeth, the less often you’ll have to visit the dentist, therefore helping you save money and live on less.
