If you have dental insurance, or if you have a health savings account, then throughout the year you have benefits or accrued savings you can use for treatments. Without use, they will expire at midnight on December 31st. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about using them before you lose them!
Your 2021 Benefits and Funds
Your benefits from your dental insurance plan can cover most preventive visits, and offer discounts on restorative or prosthetic dentistry. Some places even have small coverage amounts for cosmetic treatment too. Your health savings funds can also be used for necessary dental care as well. Unless used, the benefits and funds that you have paid for and earned will simply vanish at the end of December. Instead of allowing this to happen, we recommend scheduling a visit with our team. Our office staff can help you navigate your coverage to understand what you have available to use, and what will be covered for any necessary treatments. From there, we can create a treatment plan that fits with your budget and your schedule!
A Checkup and Cleaning
To find out what your smile may need, we will perform a detailed examination with advanced digital imaging technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral camera technology. The resulting images provide a detailed and close up look at your teeth, gums, roots, and oral structures. A diagnosis is then made with accuracy and precision, so we know what issues need to be addressed. We also help safeguard your smile with a cleaning, removing all harmful plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth to lower the risk of cavities, gum disease, bad breath, teeth stains, and more.
Moving Forward with Treatment
Once we have your diagnosis and understand your coverage, we will talk about your budget and your schedule, ensuring your treatment plan fits within both. Seeing us now means there is still time to undergo treatment before the hectic holiday season begins, leaving you with limited time for treatments. Should treatment not be completed by December, we can finish in 2022 once your new benefits become available. We’re ready to work with you to help you and your family obtain better oral health and stronger smiles! If you have any questions or concerns, or if you want to schedule your next visit, simply give us a call at the phone number below.
