The end of the year is quickly approaching, and you know this because your calendar is slow but surely starting to fill up with parties and family obligations. It can be tough to keep everything organized this time of year. The last thing you need is some dental issue to come up while you’re expected to eat large amounts of tasty food. This is the ideal time to see your dentist in Grapevine, Dr. Greg Martin, because your teeth need to be healthy this season, plus your dental insurance benefits are about to reset.
Use It or Lose It
A simple way to keep your smile bright throughout the years is to see your dentist every 6 months. This gives them a chance to clean your teeth in places that you can’t reach with brushing and flossing alone, as well as give them a chance to catch any dental issues early. The sooner they are able to spot something, the quicker and easier treatment usually is. Many patients will wait until they start to feel pain before they make an appointment, and this can lead to treatment taking longer and being more invasive. Regular check-ups and cleanings are so useful when it comes to your dental health that most preventive care is completely covered by your dental insurance plan. Many plans work by covering you up to a certain dollar amount. These benefits actually reset at the beginning of each year. Millions of dollars of benefits go unused by patients every year. This is because most people do not know their plan well enough to realize how much they are covered, and insurance companies are incentivized not to make you aware of the money you have left to use. Since the holidays are coming up and your time is about to become much more precious, take one day and make sure your teeth will be the last thing on your mind throughout all your festivities. Let the insurance company pay to keep your smile looking beautiful in all of the pictures that will be taken.
