Having access to dental services is one of the most important ways to ensure that your oral health is taken care of. In Canada, less than two-thirds of the general population currently possess dental insurance. This means that millions of Canadians are avoiding the dentist due to the high costs associated with the service.

1. Practice Good Oral Hygiene

The number one way to avoid having to pay for expensive dental care is to avoid requiring it, and you can do this by taking good care of your teeth at home. Here are some of our top preventative measures that you can take at home so that you can achieve a bright, healthy smile without expensive dental work.

  • Brush twice per day
  • Floss at least once per day
  • Use mouthwash regularly
  • Stay well hydrated throughout the day
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Avoid bad oral habits such as smoking and drinking sugary drinks


2. Be Aware of Common Dental Emergencies

Even if you take perfect care of your oral health at home, it is nearly inevitable that you will be faced with some form of dental emergency at some point in your life. If you do not have dental insurance, it is important to know what requires immediate dental care and what does not. Some signs that you may require emergency dental care are:

  • Persistent bleeding from anywhere in your mouth
  • A loose, chipped, or fallen-out tooth
  • Sore, injured jaw
  • Intense tooth pain
  • Swelling in the jaw, gums, or inner cheeks


3. Check Available Financial Assistance Programs

For those who are faced with financial hardship, there are some government assistance programs that you may be eligible for. While some of these programs only cover certain procedures or surgeries, others may provide direct financial aid. Here is a list of potential government programs that you may be eligible for.
