1. Harness the Power of Prevention
The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup at least twice a year, but 42% of adults don’t see their dentist as often as they’d like. Various factors delay routine appointments, but the cost is a leading concern. You might feel your money could be better spent elsewhere because you don’t have any current dental concerns. Despite your intentions to save money, you’re opening the door to a costly dental emergency.
Your toothbrush and floss aren’t enough to keep your smile healthy. You also need a cleaning and checkup to stop common dental issues from occurring in the first place, like tooth decay and gum disease. As a result, you are less likely to need an expensive procedure later. Research shows every $1 spent on prevention can save up to $50 on restorative and emergency care.
If you have dental insurance, you can see your dentist twice a year for minimal expense. Sacrificing part of your tax refund to cover a copay is a small amount to pay to preserve your natural smile and reduce your overall dental costs.
2. Treat Existing Dental Problems
Did you know 50% of adults have gum disease while another 26% have untreated cavities? Many people are aware the issues are there; however, they forgo dental care because of the cost. Sadly, the problem will continue to worsen until it requires urgent attention.
You can save yourself from an unplanned trip to the dentist by treating any dental concerns. If you’ve been putting off a filling, root canal, extraction, or another procedure, now is the time to rehabilitate your smile. Your dental insurance can pay up to 80% of the cost after meeting your deductible. You won’t have to worry about a large bill while avoiding the pain and hassle of a dental emergency later.
3. Achieve the Smile of Your Dreams
If you’ve always wanted a picture-perfect smile, your tax refund gives you the means to reach your goals with cosmetic dentistry. You’ll boost your confidence, look younger, and add a professional edge to your appearance. You can’t put a price tag on the benefits associated with an attractive, confident smile.
Don’t waste your tax refund on a frivolous one-time purchase. Invest in a happier, healthier future with a trip to your dentist.
