Types of Dental Appointments

Preventative Care

A simple cavity today can turn into a nasty root-canal later on, so make sure you’re staying up to date on your routine visits and preventative care. Preventative dentistry is all about maintaining oral care and preventing oral health problems down the line for you and your family. This often includes regular cleanings, regular oral exams, routine x-rays, and oral cancer screenings. Dental insurance plans often fully cover preventative care services and appointments. You can also help maintain your oral health at home by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.

Elective Care | Cosmetic Dentistry

Elective dental services often fall under the cosmetic dentistry category. They are services you often elect to have done, rather than routine services or preventative services that maintain oral health. Veneers, teeth-whitening, and other smile-enhancing services such as Invisalign Clear Aligners are often elective services, and insurance coverage may vary between each provider. Check with your insurance provider to see what elective coverage you have and schedule these big appointments at the end of the year!

Large Treatments | Restorative Dentistry

If you need larger dental treatments, many of which are considered to fall under the restorative dentistry treatments, and you’ve met your deductible, the end of the year is the perfect time to get these treatments completed! Once you reach your deductible, out-of-pocket expenses drop dramatically, so treatments are easier to get done and less expensive for your wallet.

If you’re getting close to reaching your annual maximum, talk with us and we can help create a plan to split treatments between year to year if needed. We love to work with you and your insurance to create the perfect plan for your treatments to get you the services you want!

How Many Appointments Should I Make?

Talk with your dentist to determine what services you need to stay healthy. More than likely, a routine cleaning is an appointment almost everyone can make before the end of the year – this is a preventive care appointment. If you need larger dental treatments and you’ve met your deductible, the end of the year is the perfect time to get these treatments completed! Once you reach your deductible, out-of-pocket expenses drop dramatically, so treatments are easier to get done, are less expensive for your wallet and can maximize dental insurance benefits.

Check over your insurance plan to learn if your insurance covers multiple cleanings every year. If so, make the most of your benefits by getting your cleaning in before the holiday-craziness begins and schedules tighten. Also, if you have questions for your dentist or curious about the status of your oral health, a routine check-up is the perfect way to learn about your teeth’s health and ask questions.

Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits NOW — We Can Help!!

Regular dental exams and cleaning is wonderful preventative care. Although you may be brushing and flossing really well at home, tartar and plaque is impossible to remove with regular brushing and flossing, and can build-up over time. Dentists are able to use specific tools to remove that plaque and tartar, keeping our mouth cleaner and our chances of other complications much lower. That’s just one more reason to let us help you maximize dental insurance benefits!
