How are the holidays already almost upon us? The year will be over before we know it! Oral health is often put on the bottom of our to-do lists during the last three months of the year due to all the holiday excitement. Going to the dentist is probably the last thing you’re thinking about, 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 are still able to, since many plans will not allow you to roll your benefits over into the following calendar year. To make things easier, we have decided to share three simple ways to use your remaining benefits! Use it or lose it season has arrived!
- Unscheduled treatment. Do you have any treatment you need to get done but haven’t scheduled? We understand that treatment can be scary, especially if you have never had serious dental work done. We promise you won’t regret it! Whether you need to get crowns, have a tooth extracted, or fix a cavity, we promise that getting it on your schedule before the end of the year will pay off. Not only will you be rid of any discomfort you have been having, but you will also save money in the long run. If you continue to put off necessary treatment, you may have to get more in the coming months or even years. Make sure to schedule your treatment so you can use your benefits before you lose them!
- Big procedures. Have you always wanted to upgrade your smile? Now is a perfect time to get started! Give yourself a full smile restoration with dental implants or schedule an Invisalign consultation before the year comes to a close. You will be able to use any leftover dental benefits to cover the costs, which is one of the best parts. It’s time to take the leap you’ve always wanted to take and get a smile makeover. It’s never too late to feel proud of your smile. This is a great way to use your benefits before you lose them!
- Hygiene. When was the last time you had your teeth cleaned? If it’s been since the spring of 2021 or earlier, you should schedule a cleaning as soon as possible. Seeing your hygienist twice per year is one of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy. Your hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar buildup that can cause more severe health problems in the future if not dealt with 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 in a while, schedule with us and use your benefits before you lose them!
Whether you have pending treatment, want to treat yourself to a smile upgrade, or need to schedule a hygiene visit, now is the time to get it on your calendar! Plus, we would love to see you at Huntsville Family Dental before the year is over. Give us a call at (936) 295-5437 to schedule an appointment! The clock is ticking, which means it’s time to use it or lose it! Regular 6-month checkups are incredibly important, click here to read why.
