2020 is coming to an end and so are your dental insurance benefits. Dental insurance allows you to maintain your oral health consistently at low costs. Most insurance companies do not allow you to use the current year’s benefits past December 31st. So, in order to make the most out of your money, using your remaining benefits before the year ends is a good idea!
Ideally, having insurance encourages people to visit the dentist routinely so that their oral health is kept in check. There are two categories most dental procedures fall under: prevention and cure. Preventative dentistry is about catching problems early on so that curative dentistry, which requires fixing those problems, is avoided until necessary. Most insurance companies almost fully cover preventative dentistry over curative dentistry. In fact, they say prevention is the cure. Preventative dentistry includes routine check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and more!
Regardless of how you used your benefits this year, there is still time to book an appointment for any oral problems you might be facing this winter.
