Use it or Lose it: Dental Benefits With Allen Dental

The beginning of the school year has passed, the holidays are close, and the end of 2021 will be here before we know it! There is so much excitement packed into the last three months of the year that we often forget to go back to basics, including staying on top of our oral health. We understand that you are busy, and dental care may not be at the top of your to-do list.

However, you only have a few months left to use your dental benefits before they expire! It is essential to utilize your benefits while you can because many plans do not allow benefits to roll over into the next calendar year. We have decided to give you three easy ways to use your remaining benefits to make things easier for you. It’s time to use it or lose it!


When was the last time you came in to get your teeth cleaned? If it’s been six months or more, you are due for a visit with your hygienist. Getting your teeth cleaned twice per year is an integral part of keeping your teeth healthy. Your hygienist will remove any buildup of plaque or tartar that can lead to more troublesome dental problems down the line if not taken care of.

In addition to this, your smile will feel fresh and new. If you have remaining dental benefits and haven’t been in for a cleaning in six months or more, what are you waiting for? You can schedule with us and use those benefits before you lose them!

Unscheduled treatment

Another way you can use your remaining benefits is by finally scheduling that pesky treatment you have been putting off. We know that diagnosed treatment can be intimidating, especially if you have never had a serious dental procedure done before. We promise you won’t regret it! Whether it be crowns, getting a cavity fixed, an extraction, or any other number of treatments, we promise getting it scheduled before the end of the year is a good idea.

Not only will this solve any pain or discomfort you are having faster, but it will also save you money in the long run. If you continue to put off treatment, you may need additional treatment in the future. I think you know what this means. Schedule your treatment so you can use your benefits before you lose them!

Big procedures

Are you the type of person who has always wanted to upgrade your smile but hasn’t known where to start? You’re in luck! Now is the perfect time to get started with Invisalign or even give yourself a full smile restoration with dental implants! Do you want to know what the best part of this is? You will be able to use your remaining dental benefits to cover the costs. Now is the time to take the leap you’ve always wanted to take and schedule your smile transformation. It’s never too late, and you will be able to…you guessed it, use your benefits before you lose them!

Whether you need to schedule a hygiene appointment, have unscheduled dental treatment, or even want to treat yourself to a smile upgrade, it is a perfect time to do so!
