The last few months of 2022 are here! At Longview Family Dental, we want to ensure you know the perks of using all your insurance dollars by year’s end. While this is a busy time of year, and the health of your smile may be the last thing on your mind, it is still integral to note many dental insurance companies will not roll unused benefits over into the following calendar year. This means they are lost! Our office can provide many cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services that will allow you to use your benefits before you lose them!
Have you checked to see if you have any incomplete treatment? This could be anything from a deep cleaning to a filling to a root canal! Getting your treatment scheduled and completed before the year ends will benefit your oral health and put your mind at ease. Some of the most widely-offered treatments we give patients revolve around fixing cavities. If you have a small cavity, you may need nothing more than a filling! If you have put off your cavity treatment for a while, the cavity may grow and become infected. This may necessitate a root canal, in which your dentist will remove the infected pulp from your tooth root and fill it so it will look and function naturally. Getting cavities treated as soon as they are diagnosed is very important, as it will ensure less intensive treatment is needed later on.
Have you had your teeth cleaned recently? A cleaning twice yearly is vital for maintaining oral health. Your dental hygienist will remove any plaque buildup, which aids in cavity prevention. More serious dental treatment may need to be considered when cavities are left unattended for too long. Keeping up with your hygiene appointments will ensure this does not happen. In addition to this, your smile will be fresh and sparkling just in time for the most joyous three months of the year!
Have you been considering a major dental procedure? Getting started with an extensive procedure like dental implants can be nerve-wracking. We are here to make the process comfortable for our patients! Extensive procedures will begin with a consultation, where you will meet with one of our dentists to discuss the treatment you are considering, any hesitations you may have, and devise a treatment plan. From there, you will be able to move forward with peace of mind knowing that you are working with a team that cares and has your best interests at heart. It is the perfect opportunity to use those benefits before you lose them!
The Longview Family Dental team is excited about the holidays! We want you to feel confident in your smile. It is a wonderful time to book an appointment, whether it be your regular six-month cleaning and checkup, restorative treatment, or cosmetic procedures! Trust us, taking advantage of your dental insurance benefits will aid in peace of mind and a beautiful smile!
