Use it or lose it season has arrived! Due to the excitement and celebration surrounding the holidays, our oral health is often one of the last things we think about during this time. Going to the dentist may not be on your current to-do list, but you only have a few months left to use your dental benefits before they expire! It is important to use them up while you can, since many plans do not let you roll your benefits over into the following calendar year. To help you out, we have decided to share three ways to use your leftover benefits!
- Unscheduled treatment. Do you have any treatment you have been procrastinating? Whether you need to get crowns, have a tooth extracted, or fix a cavity, we promise that getting it on your calendar before the end of 2021 will take some stress off your plate. You will be rid of any discomfort you have been having, and you will save money in the long run. If you continue to put off necessary treatment, you may have to get more in the coming months. Make sure to schedule your treatment so you can use your benefits before you lose them!
- Hygiene. When was your last hygiene appointment? If it’s been since the spring of 2021 or before, you need to schedule a cleaning as soon as you can. Seeing your hygienist twice per year is one of the most integral ways to keep your teeth in good shape. Your hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar buildup that can cause more severe health problems in the future if not addressed early on. Your smile will feel clean and bright after a hygiene appointment, which is always enjoyable. If you have remaining dental benefits and haven’t been in for a cleaning recently, schedule with us and use your benefits before you lose them!
- Big procedures. Have you always wanted a smile upgrade but not known where to start? Now is a perfect time! Give yourself a full smile restoration with dental implants or schedule an Invisalign consultation before the year comes to a close! The best part is that you will be able to use any leftover dental benefits to cover the costs. It’s time to take the leap you’ve always wanted to and get your smile upgrade scheduled. It’s never too late to feel proud of your smile. This is a great way to use your benefits before you lose them!
Whether you have pending treatment, need to come in for a hygiene appointment, or want to treat yourself to a smile makeover, now is the best time to do it! Plus, we would love for you to visit us at Storts Family Dental before the year comes to a close. Give us a call at our Ardmore, Marietta, or Madill location to be put on our schedule! The clock is ticking, which means it’s time to use it or lose it! Here are tips on periodontal disease prevention.
