Did you know that most patients’ yearly insurance benefits don’t roll over? Your dental insurance benefits will expire at the end of each year. If you didn’t take advantage of all your covered services in 2022, you can do better in the new year! With 2023 right around the corner, here are some ways you can make sure to maximize your benefits next year.
Schedule Your Routine Visits
Schedule two dental cleanings and checkups each year. Dental insurance plans typically cover at least two dental cleanings and exams per year; you may qualify for more if you are pregnant or have certain health conditions, such as heart disease. Cleanings reduce your risk of developing dental disease, and routine checkups allow for any problems to be identified early.
Don’t Delay Necessary Treatments
If you’ve been putting off getting a cavity filled or replacing a missing tooth, don’t wait any longer. Delaying necessary treatments can result in even more dental problems and necessary treatments! Many insurance plans offer at least partial coverage for restorative dental treatments.
Check If You Have Orthodontic or Cosmetic Coverage
Have you wanted to straighten your teeth or whiten your smile? Your dental insurance may offer partial coverage. The new year is a great time to enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence! But even if your insurance doesn’t cover something like Invisalign®, Gastonia Family Dentistry offers 0% financing through CareCredit®. This breaks your dental expenses into manageable monthly payments.
