Although people may not know, there can be a path to cash in a person’s mouth. Dentists will often use gold in the materials they use in a person’s mouth. When these materials fail or need to be taken out for one reason or another, a person may have scrap dental gold on their hands. Some people’s first instincts might be to throw it away. This gold can sometimes be valuable, though, and it is often worth it to sell it rather than to simply throw it away.
