Smile When You Get that Refund

Government Windfall Good Opportunity to Invest in Your Teeth

VOORHEES, N.J., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal tax refunds averaged $2,548 in 2006 and should be similar for 2007. Together with the government's economic stimulus tax rebate, which will put $300-$1,200 or more back in the pockets of most taxpayers this Spring, it's a potential windfall of cash just in time for summer vacations.

But rather than getting away for a week, you can make a lifelong investment with that money. According to Dr. Jack Piermatti, a prosthodontist and director of Dental Arts of South Jersey, those with dental problems in need of implant surgery but lacking the funds can do it now.

"We get a significant number of new patients during tax season," says Piermatti, who treats patients from all over New Jersey and the Delaware Valley, and has performed more than 11,000 dental implants during his career. "Many people see the value of investing in their appearance, especially when it's a permanent fix like new teeth."

The benefits of dental implants go beyond the cosmetic. Improved chewing, particularly of nutritious -- frequently hard -- foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, can lead to better health. Speech is often improved. And enhanced self-esteem almost always comes along with new pearly whites.

Dental implants, which aren't usually covered by insurance, average about $1,200 each in the U.S., not including the crown. But unlike dentures and other solutions for missing teeth, the procedure permanently anchors the new tooth to the jaw.

As an elective procedure, implants are often put off because of other priorities, says Piermatti, but the longer you delay, the more costly the work will be, as one or two bad or missing teeth can lead to deformities in other teeth and even the facial structure itself.

"If you're looking for something really worthwhile to do with your tax refund, investing in your body and your self-esteem is the way to go. You'll see the result every time you look in a mirror," says Piermatti.
