Most Americans have had their daily schedules radically changed during the Covid19 pandemic. Bustling days full of work, shuttling children to sports practice, and fun social events have been replaced with days on end at home figuring out how to maintain work and entertain restless children. 

One thing your entire family can take advantage of during this time is dental specials at your local dentist’s office.  Many people are unaware that their dentist may offer discount pricing. 

Five Possible Ways to Save Money at the Dentist

Dental Exam

Often you can get a nearly free dental exam if you look for one that includes x-ray and basic cleaning. How else can you be sure your teeth are doing well? With an appointment including x-ray and basic cleaning, you’ll be on your way to better oral health. It’s a quick, affordable way to get the answers you need. Your teeth will be healthier, and you’ll know if you have cavities or other problems. It’s a win/win for a low price. 

Braces Exam 

If you are interested in braces, you can request a free orthodontics consultation with x-rays.

Did you know that kids aren’t the only one to get braces? With the x-rays and consultation, you or your child can be on their way to a brighter smile. Often same day braces are available with payments as low as $99 per month.

Implant Special

Do you need implants or are considering them? An implant appointment can include a free consultation with discounted pricing for implants. Getting started with dental implants is easier with a consultation and possible lowered pricing on implants. You can learn more by visiting your dentist and finding out if dental implants are right for you.

Zero Financing

Many times it is difficult to get dental work done due to the expense. Many dentists do a zero credit check with a minimal down payment for dental work.  It is not uncommon for patients to need to spread out dental payments. That’s why many dentists have zero-per cent financing offers and it can make dental and orthodontic care more affordable.

Second Opinion 

It can be upsetting to hear bad news, and it can be reassuring to get a second opinion. Many patients want or need that option. You can usually bring your treatment plan to your dentist for a second opinion especially when you have been told you need a root canal or a tooth pulled. This is a great idea especially when it is for free!

Is a Dentist visit safe during Covid? 

Dentist Offices across the country are required to take steps to create a clean, safe environment for their patients. Dental staff are following the prescribed safety guidelines from the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Dentists and hygienists are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), washing their hands and sterilizing tools. 

It’s always the right time to improve your Oral Health

One of the most important appointments to keep at your dentist office is the dental cleaning session when your teeth and gums are thoroughly cleaned. It is also when your dentist screens you for other developing issues. Some are simple like a cavity and others can be life-threatening. At these visits, your dentist also screens you for infections that may spread and possible gum issues.

Many people don’t realize that dental health is very important to other critical health issues. According to the ADA, getting your teeth properly cleaned twice a year at your dentist’s office helps prevent gum disease and also reduces your chances of potentially deadly heart attacks and strokes. 

Call your dentist today and ask for their current dental specials. This is a great way to spend your extra time without spending extra money.
