Good dental care is essential to maintaining your health as you grow older. Regular checkups, X-rays, fillings, crowns, dentures and more help keep your mouth healthy and decrease the likelihood of developing serious conditions such as gum disease.
But dental procedures can be costly, even if you have insurance that covers some of the costs. We understand you may have concerns about how to pay for dental care and wonder what options are available to you. What is the best one? You have several possibilities, but ultimately many patients opt for financing for their dental work and procedures at our Sun City office.
What avenues can you take to pay your dental bills? Here are four common approaches:
Another possibility for paying for your dental procedures is dental financing, which allows you to pay for your dental expenses over time instead of paying in one lump sum when the bill arrives. By working within the system set up by your provider, you often get a lower interest rate than you would pay through a credit card, and you receive the flexibility of a system your dentist is familiar with and understands.
Different dental offices have different financing options available. They often cover a shorter term and have no payoff penalties. Some even allow you to pay no interest if you pay off the debt within a certain time, saving money you would pay on a longer-term finance deal through a credit card.
Donoho Dental accepts CareCredit Dental Financing for our patients. With this financing plan, you receive a credit card you can use to pay for a range of dental services, including preventative, cosmetic and restorative care. CareCredit can cover a great number of services in Sun City provided at Donoho Dental, such as:
Our patients like CareCredit because of its flexibility. You can choose from a variety of short- and longer-term financing options, based on what works for you and your family. If you know, for example, that you have money coming in later this year that can cover your dental work, you may want to choose a plan that charges no interest during the promotional period.
The more you pay, the longer promotional period you qualify for in many cases. You will need to make sure you understand the terms of your CareCredit dental financing for implants, crowns, veneers and more. Your plan may require a minimum monthly payment.
Getting CareCredit allows you to obtain the dental care that is so important to your continued health. All adults must maintain good oral health habits, such as getting regular checkups and cleanings, or it could impact other aspects of their health. For example, researchers have found a correlation between poor gum care and an increased risk of heart disease. People with diabetes can also suffer gum disease and tooth decay if they don’t receive regular dental care.
When you know you have CareCredit financing to rely on, you are more apt to make and keep dental appointments and obtain the care you need to remain in peak health. Dental financing can open up new possibilities for your oral health. Perhaps you have been putting off implant restoration or undergoing a root canal because you are worried you can’t afford them. With CareCredit, you no longer have to worry about paying the entire bill at once.
