The main reason most people don’t go to the dentist or get needed dental work done is due to the high cost. Unfortunately, the majority of dentists charge at least $200 for a simple check-up and cleaning. If you need to get other procedures done such as fillings, root canals, extractions etc, it can easily cost hundreds and thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, many people can’t afford these bills due to unemployment, lack of dental coverage, being a retiree etc. Thankfully, there are many ways that you can get low cost and even free dental care and we’ll now look at your options.
The first free option we will look at is free dental clinics. These clinics are typically run by charities, religious groups and even dental organizations. Typically, the dentists donate their services free of charge. However, these clinics usually have long waitlists or specific limitations.
Another option is nonprofit clinics. In most cities, you will find at least one or a couple of nonprofit dental clinics that provide free dental care for people who don’t have insurance, have low incomes or simply those who can’t pay for dental care. Most are staffed with volunteer dentists and they usually work on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Next, some private dentists actually donate some of their services for free, every year. These aren’t typically publicly advertised and usually come from referrals. So, if you have a dentist that you usually see but can’t afford to pay any more, you should inform them of your situation. There is a chance that they might take your case on for free or refer you to someone who can.Here are the things that you need to consider on how to take care with your teeth with the right tooth brush.
