If you have dental insurance, then you have benefits that will expire at the end of December unless used. Instead of losing what you’ve paid for, why not put them to sue with a visit to our office? In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about why you should schedule a checkup to use your benefits!
Dental Insurance Benefits and Health Savings Accounts
If you have dental insurance benefits that you have not used, then they expire at midnight on December 31st. In addition, if you have a health signs account, there is a chance your funds that you haven’t used may not roll over into 2022. Instead of losing what you’ve paid for, why not talk to our office staff? We will help you understand the extent of your coverage and what is available, planning any necessary treatments so they fit within your budget. A visit now also means a chance to address any problems that have arisen before the holiday season makes your schedule much busier.
Checkups and Cleanings
Everything will start with a dental checkup. The exam is a chance for our team to take a close look at your smile, diagnosing any issues that require attention, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, gum disease, or even TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). We then plan treatment to correct the concerns. In the same sitting, we can also clean the teeth, a process that carefully and gently removes all plaque and tartar to help protect the health of your smile, and to also offer brighter teeth as well. This visit is recommended for kids and adults alike, and is the first step in improving your overall oral health.
Should we discover any issue that needs attention, we have an array of treatment options to restore the function, health, and beauty of your smile. For example, we can treat cavities and infections with lifelike fillings and crowns. Minor cosmetic issues with the shape of the teeth, or with significant gaps, could be fixed in one visit with bonding and contouring. We also have professional teeth whitening to brighten smiles! If you have a missing tooth, then our team could fill the gaps with dental bridges, full or partial dentures, or even advanced implant dentistry. If you have any questions about our treatment options, or if you would like to schedule a visit soon, then contact our team today to learn more.
