It’s that time of year again. The countdown is on! As we approach the last few months of 2022, the Allen Dental Center team wanted to remind you of the perks of using all your insurance dollars before the year closes. We understand the fall months are busy for everyone, and your dental health may be the last thing on your mind. However, it is essential to note many dental insurance companies will not roll unused benefits over into the following calendar year, which means they are lost! Luckily, we offer countless restorative, cosmetic, and general dental services that will allow you to decide how to use your remaining insurance before you lose it!
Have you had your teeth cleaned recently?
A cleaning twice yearly is vital for maintaining oral health. Your dental hygienist will remove any plaque buildup, which aids in cavity prevention. More serious dental treatment may need to be considered when cavities are left unattended for too long. Keeping up with your hygiene appointments will ensure this does not happen. In addition to this, your smile will be fresh and sparkling just in time for the most joyous three months of the year!
Have you been considering a major dental procedure?
Getting started with an extensive procedure like dental implants can be nerve-wracking. We are here to make the process comfortable for our patients! Extensive procedures will begin with a consultation, where you will meet with one of our dentists to discuss the treatment you are considering, any hesitations you may have, and devise a treatment plan. From there, you will be able to move forward with peace of mind knowing that you are working with a team that cares and has your best interests at heart. It is the perfect opportunity to use those benefits before you lose them!
Have you checked to see if you have any incomplete treatment?
This could be anything from a deep cleaning to a filling to a root canal! Getting your treatment scheduled and completed before the year ends will benefit your oral health and put your mind at ease. Some of the most widely-offered treatments we give patients revolve around fixing cavities. If you have a small cavity, you may need nothing more than a filling! If you have put off your cavity treatment for a while, the cavity may grow and become infected.
This may necessitate a root canal, in which your dentist will remove the infected pulp from your tooth root and fill it so it will look and function naturally. Getting cavities treated as soon as they are diagnosed is very important, as it will ensure less intensive treatment is needed later on.
The holidays are right around the corner, and we know your schedule is about to be filled with festive activities. That is why it is the perfect time to call us and schedule an appointment, whether it be cosmetic, restorative, or your regular six-month cleaning and checkup! You will be grateful you used all your insurance benefits and stayed on top of your oral healthcare, trust us
