If you're fortunate enough to have an insurance plan that covers dental care for you, and perhaps your family too, you'll want to make sure you take advantage of the benefits you're entitled to, before the end of this year.
Many insurance companies structure their benefit plans on a yearly basis, which means if you don't use your benefits before December 31, you'll lose them for the year. That's why it's a good idea to have a look at your dental insurance benefit summary occasionally, to refresh your memory on what benefits are covered for you. We accept a number of different insurance plans at our office, so chances are good that we're familiar with yours.
If you're having trouble deciphering exactly what your dental insurance plan does or does not cover, please don't hesitate to ask us. The plan explanations can sometimes be confusing, but we may be able to help clarify them for you.
Unlike many other medical situations, where you only make an appointment when you have to address a painful or specific condition, going to the dentist on a regular basis should be a preventive habit rather than a reactive need. A regular dental examination includes a visual and manual check of your throat, neck, and entire mouth - lips, teeth, gums, tongue and all surrounding tissues - as we look for any signs of decay and disease.
Preventive dentistry is always less invasive, more comfortable and more cost-effective than fixing an existing dental problem that has been ignored.
If you have insurance benefits that are going to help you maintain and improve your dental health, why not take advantage of them? Dental health is linked to overall well-being, so it makes sense to ensure that your teeth, gums and mouth are professionally checked on a regular basis.
