Perfect Teeth has your back- Our holiday hours allow you to use your dental benefits before the end of the year!
The holiday season is upon us, and most people are busy with shopping, baking, addressing greeting cards even planning and attending parties. We understand the last thing you’re probably thinking about is maximizing your dental benefits… and you’re not alone!
“…96 percent of all companies offer some kind of group dental benefits to employees, as many as one-third of dental plan members don’t actually use them…” Source: Benefits Bridge: Use Your Dental Benefits
If you don’t use your dental benefits, you most likely lose them. Meaning you may not be taking advantage of free and reduced cost opportunities you and your employer are paying for. Don’t lose out on the benefits you’ve paid for. Instead, consider using that extra time off during the holidays to visit your dentist.
Checkups Twice a Year
If you haven’t had a cleaning this year, or only have had one, come in for a visit and cross it off your self-care list. Regular, routine dental visits and good oral care habits provide preventive care that supports a variety of wellness benefits, and in many cases, are fully covered under your dental insurance coverage. The benefits of regular checkups with your dentist include:
- Reducing or preventing gingivitis
- Early oral cancer intervention
- Reducing or preventing cavities
- Lowering risk of heart disease
- Reducing risk of Alzheimer’s Disease
- Reducing inflammation in the body (which leads to a variety of disease)
- Preventing bad breath
- Prevention of tooth loss
Complete Outstanding Treatment
You may have seen the dentist this year and are aware of some specific treatments that are needed. This is a perfect time of year to get in and use your dental benefits before you lose them when the calendar turns to the New Year. Get started on your recommended treatment not only to maximize your benefits, but to perhaps jump start a resolution of a healthier you in 2018.
Your dental office can help you maximize your insurance coverage. They will provide a treatment plan that works with your insurance, explain your out-of-pocket costs, and discuss financing options. Depending on your insurance coverages, some of the treatments which may be covered could include the following:
- Deep cleanings
- Root canals
- Tooth repair
- Dental fillings
- Bridges, crowns
- Dental implants
- Night guards
If you’ve already met your deductible for this year, it is likely less expensive to get treatment done up to your plan’s yearly maximum than waiting until the following year.
