The end of 2022 is around the corner, and before you know it, the hectic holiday season will be here too. Which is why a visit now is recommended. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about using your dental benefits before you lose them, starting a new year with a healthier and brighter smile!
Taking Advantage of Your Benefits
Carrying dental insurance means that you have benefits you can use in the year for treatment, covering preventive appointments and reducing the costs to you for necessary restorative treatments or prosthetics. But if you don’t use them, they will simply expire at the end of 2022. Don’t let that happen! Instead, schedule a checkup with our team so we can make a diagnosis with accuracy and precision. Using digital x-rays and intraoral camera technology, we will identify any issues that need attention and then provide treatment to boost oral health. You can start a new year with a new smile, receiving treatment before the hectic holiday season complicates your schedule!
Everything Starts with a Checkup
The initial exam will allow us to diagnose any issues that need attention, such as tooth decay, infected teeth, gingivitis, and gum disease. We also diagnose TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding), and can screen for oral cancer. In the same visit, we will also clean the teeth as well. A dental cleaning means we remove all plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. This can freshen the breath, remove teeth stains, and even lower the overall risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Creating a Treatment Plan
Our team offers a full array of treatments for the entire family, improving overall health, function, and beauty. With oral appliances, we can address TMD, bruxism, or even sleep apnea. With cosmetic treatments, we can remove stains and address issues with the shape and position of the teeth. With restorative dentistry, we can offer natural looking treatment for cavities, infection, and damaged teeth. We also have prosthetics, such as bridges, full and partial dentures, and dental implants, to address the gaps in your smile.
If you have any questions about how we improve your smile before the year ends, then contact our team today to schedule a visit. We would like you to smile without hesitation, and enjoy bright and stunning smiles.
