The top three xrays show how less-than-very-careful dental care can seem cheap at first. Unfortunately, this type of “speed dentistry” (associated w/ discount dental plans many times – please see my article in the SunCrest Call) can lead to much higher costs down the road (not to mention the aggravation of having to sit through more dental work).
