The deadline to file your taxes is right around the corner, which means you’ve likely already filed or gotten your refund. While you could take a vacation or buy a big-ticket item, why not use your money for something more meaningful? Now is the perfect time to take the extra funds and invest in your oral health. If you haven’t visited your dentist recently or have a dental treatment you’ve been putting off, keep your smile a priority this tax season.
Reduce Your Dental Expenses
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your family dentist in Oklahoma City at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Many people view the appointments as unnecessary, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. A routine cleaning and checkup prevent common oral health issues from developing, like tooth decay and gum disease. You will lessen the likeliness of needing a costly treatment down the road. Every $1 spent on prevention can save you $50 on restorative services. If it has been more than 6 months since your last visit, use your tax return to avoid an unexpected oral health expense later in the year.
Promote a Healthy Mouth and Body
Your oral and general health are connected to each other. There are certain dental issues that can raise your risk of medical conditions. If you have any untreated dental problems, like tooth decay or gum disease, don’t wait any longer to restore a healthy smile. After maximizing your dental insurance, you use your tax return to cover any remaining balance. You can promote a healthy smile that supports your general health to feel your best.
Replace Your Missing Teeth
An incomplete smile can affect your quality of life and your self-esteem. You can permanently fill the gaps in your smile with dental implants. You’ll benefit from a solution that’s proven to last for decades to make a long-term investment in your oral health.
Give Your Confidence a Boost
Research shows the appearance of your teeth can affect your self-image. If you have an imperfect smile, it’s easy to feel embarrassed about your teeth. You don’t need to hide behind alignment issues, discoloration, chips, or missing teeth any longer. Your tax refund gives you the financial means you need to enhance your smile with orthodontics or cosmetic dentistry. Depending on your treatment plan, elective services may not be covered under your dental insurance. Your tax return gives you the funds you need to fix your aesthetic flaws. You’ll instantly boost your confidence by achieving the beautiful smile you deserve.
Don’t waste your tax return. Your dentist will help you attain a healthy, radiant smile for a gift that keeps on giving.
