3 things to do before your dental benefits expire this year: USE IT OR LOSE IT

December 3, 2014

Have you used up all your dental benefits? Are you aware that this amount will be lost and not carried over to the following year, if not taken advantage of during the current year?

1. Have you made use of your biannual hygiene appointment?

Most insurance companies provide 2 standard dental exams and 2 hygiene appointments every year. These biannual preventive care appointments are extremely important because it can help prevent costly treatment later if left undiagnosed or untreated.

2. Do you know what your yearly maximum allowance is for dental treatment?

This amount will vary by insurance companies and the insurance plan. On average the yearly maximum is renewed every calendar year. If your dental benefits are not used up, you will lose them because they will not rollover to the next year.

3. Do you know your dental problems may worsen?

Putting off dental appointments and procedures will cost you more in the long run and it may cause future health risk. Gum disease has been linked to other illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
