Cash spread out on yellow backgroundTax season is here! If your tax refund has hit your bank account, don’t blow the money on a lavish vacation or big-ticket purchase. Instead, invest in better overall wellness with a trip to your dentist because your oral and general health are connected. Here’s how you can maximize your tax fund to achieve healthy teeth and gums.

Schedule a Cleaning and Checkup

The American Dental Association recommends having a cleaning and checkup every 6 months. Unfortunately, many adults don’t visit their dentist as often as they should. Although many factors are to blame, concerns about cost are a common contributor. Routine appointments are an investment in reduced oral health expenses. Research has shown that every $1 of preventive dentistry can save up to $50 on restorative fees. 

Using a small amount of your tax refund to schedule a cleaning and checkup is a smart choice. If you have dental insurance, you can benefit from 100% preventative coverage for a co-payment. You’ll keep preventable dental problems at bay to avoid needing costly treatments later.

Schedule Any Dental Work

Many people are looking for ways to save money, which can lead to delaying dental care. Although cavities or gum inflammation may not be affecting your quality of life right now, they can quickly turn into dental emergencies. You can be at risk of irreversible damage to your dental health if you keep putting off treatment. 

Use your tax refund to rehabilitate your smile. Your dental insurance can cover up to 80% of the expenses for common dental procedures after meeting your annual deductible. Your refund will allow you to get the dental work you need without it costing you an arm or a leg.

Invest in a Beautiful Smile

Chipped, overcrowded, and lost teeth or more than just aesthetic problems. They can also affect your oral health. Your cosmetic dentist can help you invest in a beautiful, healthy smile using personalized solutions, like dental bonding, Invisalign, or porcelain veneers. 

Correcting certain imperfections can promote the health of your teeth and gums. Not to mention, you can’t put a price on the benefits you’ll gain by investing in an attractive smile. Your cosmetic dentist will create a personalized plan that fits your budget to maximize your tax refund.

While you still have the extra cash, commit to a healthier mouth. Your dentist will help you achieve better dental health without spending your life’s savings.
