Why You Should Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits Before the End of the Year, Thomasville, North Carolina

If you have a dental insurance policy, it may be time to think about scheduling your next appointment with the dentist. Primarily, this depends on whether your dental insurance plan runs on a fiscal year or on a traditional calendar year. If it’s the latter, using those benefits before January can save you money and get next year off to a healthy start. Here’s why you should check your policy and make an appointment soon.

3 Reasons to Use Your Dental Insurance Now

1. Use Your Yearly Maximum

Your insurance policy provides a maximum amount it will pay out each year in benefits, which is usually $1,000 or less. If you don’t use these benefits by visiting your dentist or periodontist before January, you’ll lose them because they don’t typically don’t roll over into the new year. For example, if you have only used $400 of that maximum amount, $600 will be left unclaimed.

2. Get What You’re Paying For

dentistThe premiums you pay to your insurance provider help you maintain your dental coverage. However, if you’re not using your insurance, that money is being wasted. At a minimum, you need teeth cleanings twice per year, but since few people have perfect teeth, you likely need additional care. At the very least, a cosmetic dentist can straighten or whiten your teeth, giving you a smile you can be proud to show.

3. Tackle Gum Disease & Tooth Decay Now

A final reason to get dental work done before the end of the year has more to do with your health than with your finances. Dental problems that go untreated will worsen, spreading to the gum tissue, underlying bone, and other teeth. This will lead to worse problems that will be more costly and more uncomfortable to treat.
