We all want to be able to maintain a healthy smile, without spending to excess. In this month’s blog the team at College Dental Surgeries look at some ways that you can save money on your dental treatment
1. Attend for regular appointments
By attending for regular routine appointments, the dentist will be able to identify any problems early before they get to the stage of causing you pain or requiring expensive, extensive treatment. Just remember the bill for a filling is much less that the bill for root canal treatment, a crown or extraction.
2. Brush and floss regularly
Regular trips to the dentist will cut down on your dental costs, but if you really want to save money it is important that you complete a full and thorough oral hygiene routine. Brush at least twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and use interdental cleaning aids to clean in between teeth where brushing misses. It is also important to reduce how often you consume sugary foods and drinks.
3. Plan with your dentist
If you require a lot of dental work, speak openly with your dentist and ask which procedures need to be completed right away and which can be deferred until a later date. It may also be possible for the dentist to provide temporary fixes that will maintain your teeth until the permanent work can be scheduled.
4. Consider budgeting
Here at College Dental Surgeries we are pleased to be able to offer Denplan payment plans to help you budget for your dental treatment. With Denplan’s fixed monthly payments you can avoid surprise dental bills as they provide for the majority of dental treatment needed to maintain your dental health. Prior to treatment a dental assessment is made so that the price you pay is dependent on the ‘health’ of your mouth
