Most insurance companies have a benefit deadline before the calendar year ends. According to a recent study, more than half of Americans have not used all of their dental benefits for the year.
If you are one of them, now is the time to start planning how to make the most of your remaining benefits.
One way to do this is to schedule any necessary dental work, such as filling a cavity or getting a crown.
However, you should also consider using your benefits for preventive care, such as cleanings and fluoride treatments.
These simple measures can help to keep your teeth healthy and reduce your risk of significant dental problems in the future. In addition, most dental plans cover X-rays, which can be an important tool in diagnosing problems early. So if you haven't used all of your dental benefits yet, now is the time to start planning how to make the most of them.
