Save Money on Oral Health Care

For most of us, saving money where we can is a good thing. From couponing and shopping sales to bargaining for automobiles to refinancing your mortgage, a penny saved is a penny earned. Any savvy shopper can find savings almost anywhere, but did you know you don’t have to be a professional bargain hunter to cut costs - even when it comes to caring for your oral health? If you’re looking to save a buck on your pearly whites, here are some practical tips for being frugal with your oral health.

Stock Up

Whether you see your favorite toothpaste on sale, have a killer coupon for your go-to floss or find an awesome rebate on your electric toothbrush heads at your favorite wholesale club, it pays to stock up. Just pay attention to the expiration date on your toothpaste, because you aren’t saving any money if you can’t use the paste when you need it.

Get Dental Insurance

Does your insurance plan have dental coverage? Even if your teeth are perfect and you’ve never had a cavity, getting dental insurance is a must. Devastating injuries don’t care if you can afford to pay for them. That’s why it’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your oral health.

Go to the Dentist More (not Less) Often

It may seem counterintuitive that you could save money by going to the dentist more frequently, but getting regular cleanings can help prevent the need for expensive procedures like dental debridement, where a thick layer of plaque is deep cleaned off the teeth prior to a regular dental exam, or root planing and scaling, a procedure that deep cleans the pockets between your teeth and gums.

Get a Dental Savings Plan

Dental savings plans are different from insurance but can still save you money. Dental savings plans offer discounts on certain dental procedures for those without insurance.

Take Care of Your Teeth at Home

The best way to save on oral health is to take care of your teeth before problems arise. That means brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes at a time and flossing at least once a day. As we mentioned before, it also means regular dental checkups to make sure everything is in good working order and there are no cavities or other problems that will cost you money.
