Tax season is here, and you might be wondering what to spend your refund on. A vacation sounds nice but so does paying off that large, looming credit card bill. However, you might not even be considering one of the most important things you can spend your money on—your oral health! Here’s what you need to know about the importance of good oral health, and how a small investment in your mouth tomorrow can save you a lot of time and money in the future.
The Importance of Good Oral Health
A healthy mouth is a happy mouth; if you want to lead a hearty life and minimize potential health problems, it starts with good oral hygiene. Poor oral health can lead to a plethora of health problems including tooth decay and gum disease, not to mention chronic pain that will wear you down over time.
In serious cases, potentially deadly diseases can develop as a result of poor oral hygiene; things like oral cancer, diabetes, or even heart disease are all possibilities. In order to avoid both long and short-term problems, you should evaluate the status of your mouth and consider why it might be worth the money.
For many people, cost is a huge factor towards determining if they should go through with treatment. But think about the pay-off; by investing early on in your oral health, you’re setting yourself up to have fewer problems down the road. Something minor and inexpensive like a teeth cleaning is much more preferable to something serious with major financial implications, like a future tooth replacement.
Turning Your Tax Refund into A Healthy Smile
If you’re ready to commit your tax refund towards your oral health, you’ll want to pay your dentist a visit to discuss possible treatments. There are tons of ways to affordably improve your oral health and enhance your smile, including:
- Regular checkups and cleanings
- Professional teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Smile makeovers
- Dental implants
Your treatment will largely depend on your own individual needs. There are many available cosmetic options that are widely sought-after for their impressive results, but there are also more intensive treatments for issues beyond the superficial, including root canal therapy, crowns, fillings, and more.
It feels pretty good to receive a large tax refund, but wouldn’t it feel better to know that your smile is in great shape? This year, consider the value of investing in your oral health—it’s absolutely worth it.
