Dental Benefits: Use It Or Lose It

Dental Benefits: Use It Or Lose It

How are we already almost to the holidays? This year is coming to a close fast! Our oral health is often put on the back burner during the last three months of the year due to holiday festivities. We understand that dental care might not be the first thing you want to do, but you only have a few months left to use your benefits before they expire!

Use Your Dental Benefits

Using up your benefits is important because most plans do not allow benefits to roll over into the following calendar year. We have decided to share three straightforward tips for how you can use your leftover benefits. It’s time to use it or lose it!

  1. Big procedures. Are you the type of person who has always wanted a smile makeover but hasn’t known how to get started? Now is the perfect time to look into Invisalign or even give yourself a complete smile upgrade with dental implants! Do you want to know what the best part of this is? You will be able to use any of your leftover dental benefits to cover the costs. Now is the best time to take the leap you’ve always wanted to take and bring your smile to the next level. It’s never too late, and you will be able to use your benefits before you lose them!
  2. Hygiene. It is very important to see your dental hygienist every six months. If it’s been more time, you are due for a visit as soon as possible! Getting your teeth cleaned twice per year is integral to keeping them healthy. Your hygienist will remove any buildup of plaque or tartar that can lead to dental problems in the future if not taken care of in a timely manner. Your smile will feel fresh and bright! If you have remaining dental benefits and haven’t been in for a cleaning in six months or more, now is the time to come in! You can schedule with us today and use those benefits before you lose them!
  3. Unscheduled treatment. Do you still need to schedule that pesky treatment you have been putting off for a while? We know that treatment can be nerve-wracking, especially if you have never had a big dental procedure done before. We promise getting it done is a great decision! Whether it be a tooth extraction, getting a cavity fixed, crowns, or any other number of treatments or procedures, we stand by the fact that getting it scheduled before the end of the year will benefit you. Not only will any discomfort you have be solved more quickly, but you will also save money in the long run. If you continue to put off treatment, you may need even more of it in the future. I think you know what this means. Get your treatment on the calendar today so you can use your benefits before you lose them!

Whether you want to treat yourself to a smile makeover, need to schedule a hygiene visit, or have some pesky unscheduled treatment, the last three months of the year are the perfect time to do it!
