using dental insurance benefitsAs the year draws to a close, your dental benefits for the year do, too. As dental care is an ongoing process, we advise using your dental insurance benefits before they expire to make sure that you start the new year with a clean, healthy, and confident smile. While you’re here, we’ll help you with your insurance to help take some of the hassle out of the process.  

Why Dental Visits Are Important

Routine visits to your dentist are not just a strong suggestion; they are a necessity to keep your mouth and oral tissues healthy and in good condition. The necessity is what makes having (and using) your dental insurance benefits so important. In addition to your toothbrush and floss, you need the professional instruments, care, and attention of your dentist and hygienist to:

  • thoroughly clean plaque and tartar from your teeth
  • check for early signs of potentially-destructive oral health issues
  • recommend improvements to your at-home hygiene routine, if necessary
  • inspect your bite to ensure that it’s balanced and operating properly
  • discuss the merits of various cosmetic options, if you’re unhappy with your smile’s appearance
  • and much more

Start the New Year with a Healthier Smile

Many patients assume that visiting their dentist is unnecessary if their teeth don’t hurt, or if their gums aren’t bleeding. However, dental issues are progressive; meaning they can develop and mature before you even realize it. If it’s been a while since you’ve visited your dentist, or to find out if your dental insurance plan is covered at our office, then call or visit us today.
