If you’re like most people, a trip to get your teeth cleaned may not be the highest on your priority list. But studies have shown that oral health is directly linked to overall health, and sometimes your oral health remains a mystery until a professional takes a deeper look.
If you can’t remember the last time you visited our office, or even if it seems like you were just there, scheduling a check-up or some additional work before the end of the year can save you hundreds of dollars. A routine check-up includes an exam, cleaning, and x-rays which can shed light on any underlying problems that you may have. As with many health problems, oral issues tend to worsen over time, so getting that toothache or those sensitive gums looked at before the first of the year is a smart idea.
If your insurance has a deductible that you’ve met, taking full advantage of your benefits before they restart is a great way to save money. For bigger procedures, consider splitting up the work over two appointments, one at the end of this year and one at the beginning of the next. This will allow you to take full advantage of all of your possible benefits for this year while avoiding going over your maximum by also using next year’s benefits.
