Do You Have Dental Benefits?

When you have dental benefits, these could expire at the end of December unless you use them. Don’t let this happen, instead talk to our team about improving you and your family’s smiles before your benefits are gone! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about how to put those benefits to good use!

Don’t Let Them Expire Without Being Used!

When we have dental insurance coverage, this provides benefits each year that can be used to cover certain preventive treatment, or to lower the price of necessary restorative or prosthetic procedures. Likewise, if you happen to have a health savings account, then you again have funds available that you earn and could put toward health and dental treatments. But if you don’t use them by midnight on December 31st, they will expire and you’ll be stuck in a waiting period for your 2023 ones to become available. Don’t let this happen, instead let us put them to use so you and your family can start 2023 with strong smiles!

The Initial Checkup Visit

We suggest scheduling a checkup visit to begin care now, so we can identify any areas of concern and address them before the hectic holiday season complicates your schedule. The initial checkup means using digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to take detailed images of your smile and offer diagnosis with precision and accuracy. We can watch for issues like tooth decay, gingivitis, infection, gum disease, and even TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). We also screen for oral cancer too. With the cleaning portion of these visits, we will remove all plaque and tartar with an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool. This helps smiles of all ages and lowers the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, as well as bad breath and stained teeth.

Continuing Your Treatment

If we find issues that need treatment, then we can move forward with a solution. For example, we can treat cavities with a lifelike filling, and tackle serious restorative issues with a custom-made crown. A dental prosthetics, such as a bridge, denture, or dental implant, can address one or more missing teeth. We could even employ cosmetic treatments to brighten teeth and address issues with the overall beauty of your smile. We would love to help you obtain a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile again, and start 2023 with one you can’t wait to show the world!
