More than three-quarters of Americans have some sort of dental coverage, but a surprisingly low number take advantage of these benefits. In fact, only 2.8% of those with PPO dental plans reach or exceed their maximum allowance. Instead of heading into another year leaving your 2019 benefits behind, why not use them now to improve your oral health?
At Tribeca Dental Studio, we partner with adults and children in the Tribeca area of New York City for optimal oral health through preventive and proactive care. If you have unused dental benefits, now is the time to take care of your dental business before your benefits run out on December 31. By doing this, you can stay one step ahead of your dental health AND not let another year go by where you leave money behind.
Here’s a look at how you can best use your dental benefits before you lose them.
Although dental benefits don’t cover everything, they do cover the steps you take to safeguard your teeth and gums. If you’ve put off your annual check-up or you missed your last cleaning, be sure to book these important visits as soon as possible as they’ll likely be covered by your benefits.
Though using up your benefits provides a great incentive, the fact is that check-ups and professional cleanings are your first line of defense when it comes to your dental health. It’s during these visits that we can spot any potential problems and take quick action to avoid larger, and more costly, problems down the road.
When you see us for a check-up, we take X-rays of your teeth, check your gums, and perform a complete evaluation of your dental health, playing close attention to areas that have been problematic in the past. With our advanced diagnostics and professional team, we can help you identify any issues that should be addressed through one of our many services.
Rest assured, we aren’t going to invent problems where there aren’t any! If your teeth and gums are in great shape, we applaud your efforts and leave well enough alone.
If we’ve found that you could benefit from a tooth extraction, root canal procedure, or any other procedure that will improve your overall dental health, tackling them now is a great way to maximize your benefits. Though undergoing dental work may not top the list of things you’d like to do, modern dentistry has come a long way, and these procedures are virtually painless, as is the hit to your wallet when you use up your dental benefits.
Not to mention, when you delay your dental work, you set the stage for far more serious, potentially painful, and more expensive procedures in the next year.
Don’t let another year go by without taking advantage of your dental benefits. Give us a call at (332) 225-0688, or use our online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
