Man counting cashIs your tax refund burning a hole in your pocket? Don’t blow the extra money on a big-ticket item or a vacation. Instead, invest in yourself. Use your tax refund to improve your oral health. Here are 4 ways you can put the money to good use by achieving your best smile.

1. Schedule a Cleaning and Checkup

Brushing and flossing aren’t enough to keep tooth loss at bay. The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup every 6 months, but only one-third of adults visit their dentist regularly.

If you’ve been putting off your cleaning and checkup, there’s no better time than now to schedule an appointment. Your dentist will stop common dental issues from occurring to preserve your oral health. You’ll protect your smile from tooth loss and avoid costly treatments later.

Researchers have found every $1 spent on prevention can save $50 on restorative services. Use your tax refund to lower your dental expenses overall by keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

2. Don’t Delay Dental Work

If you’ve been delaying dental work because money has been tight, a dental emergency might be right around the corner.

Although you may never expect it to happen to you, 1 in 6 Americans has a dental emergency annually. While accidents happen, many results from untreated dental issues, like decay or a failing restoration.

Don’t put off dental work any longer. You can restore a healthy smile and avoid an unplanned day in the dentist’s chair later. 

3. Invest in a Beautiful Smile

A stunning smile is attributed to youth, success, and confidence, but few people have attractive teeth naturally. 

Whether from genetics, poor oral hygiene, trauma, or another issue, you can invest in a picture-perfect. Not only will you boost your self-esteem, but you’ll also ensure your smile is giving the right impression, which might just lead to better career opportunities.

The benefits of a beautiful smile are priceless. Your dentist will help you choose the best procedures for your needs and budget, like dental bonding, metal-free restorations, or veneers.

4. Improve Your Overall Wellness

Your oral and general health are connected. Certain dental issues can increase your risk of various medical concerns, like heart disease. 

With your mouth the gateway to your body, good oral health is vital for your overall wellness. It’s never too late to recommit to a healthy smile by visiting your dentist.

Put Your Tax Refund to Use

Times have been tough for many families, which means dental care isn’t always a priority. Stop putting your oral health on the back burner. Keep your smile a priority by using your refund check as an opportunity to improve your dental health.
