While you’ll certainly love imagining the great results once you’ve finished orthodontic treatment with Invisalign or braces, we don’t blame you if you aren’t so excited about paying for treatment. Here are some unique ways to pay for Invisalign or braces.
Start Cooking More Meals at Home
No, this isn’t just another cliche budgeting tip on how to be more responsible with your money. If you’re going to get treatment with braces, you’ll need to figure out which braces-friendly meals you’ll enjoy the most. It helps to start experimenting with different foods before you start treatment, so you can be ready once your braces are on.
And as you cook more meals at home instead of ordering takeout or delivery, you’ll find yourself saving up for your braces in the process.
See Which Subscriptions You Don’t Need Anymore
Okay, now we’re getting a little bit into cliche budgeting territory. But if you want to make Invisalign or braces more affordable, it only makes sense to stop paying for subscriptions that are just sucking your money away. One great tool you can check out is Truebill, which helps you optimize and manage your subscriptions. You’ll likely find you’ve been sending money out of your bank account on services you totally forgot about or don’t need anymore.
Not only will doing this help you save money for braces, but you’ll likely find it to be a good budgeting tool to use moving forward.
Use HSA or FSA Funds to Pay for Invisalign or Braces
Choosing an HSA or FSA plan is a great way to set aside funds for medical expenses that aren’t covered by regular insurance. Getting a new smile with Invisalign or braces is a great use of the money you’ve set aside. This is especially true if you have an FSA and you want to make sure you use your funds before they expire. And if you’ve been rolling over money each year in your HSA, why not put it to good use by straightening your teeth?
