For people with dental insurance coverage, there are a set amount of benefits available to use in a year, and without use they will simply expire at the end of the year. Instead of letting them vanish, why not put them to good use, so you start 2023 with your best possible smile. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about using your benefits!
Dental Benefits and Health Savings Accounts
Dental insurance provides coverage for an array of treatments, covering them completely or reducing the overall costs. You have a certain amount you can use in a year, and unless used, they expire at the end of December. Likewise, many health savings accounts may not roll over, and you could lose the funds you earned. Don’t let that happen, instead see our team for a checkup and cleaning visit. We can find out if you need treatment, and provide care before the holiday season makes your schedule too complicated.
Your Checkup and Cleaning Appointment
We start with a dental checkup, in which we use digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to take detailed images of your smile and provide a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. We then create a personalized treatment plan to correct these concerns. Common examples of what we look for include tooth decay, dental infection, gingivitis, and gum disease. We also watch for signs of TMD and bruxism (teeth grinding), and will screen for oral cancer too. Our team will also clean the teeth in the same visit. The cleaning portion involves thoroughly removing the plaque and tartar from the outside of the teeth, which lowers the risk of bad breath, teeth stains, and even cavities and periodontal disease.
Our Treatment Options
We have a comprehensive array of dental treatments to improve smiles of all ages, from kids to adults. Our general treatments include oral appliances to address TMD, bruxism, and sleep apnea. Cosmetic treatments include professional whitening, bonding, and even veneers to transform smile beauty, often in one visit. Our lifelike restorations can address decay, infection, or dental damage and offer a natural appearance. Our team can also treat tooth loss with a prosthetic, such as a bridge, partial or full denture, or even one or more dental implants.
If you have any questions about using your benefits before they’re gone, or about setting up your nest checkup and cleaning visit, then contact our team today to learn more.
