In most cases, dental insurance, like medical insurance, does not extend past the end of the year. So once you hit January, your previous year’s benefits are gone forever.
Patients work hard for their insurance or take measures to acquire it, so your West Chester dentist wants to see you enjoy the advantages fully.
Using Your Dental Insurance in West Chester, OH
Typically, there are many ways to exhaust your dental benefits before the end of the year. You may be covered (as are most patients) for twice-yearly checkups and teeth cleanings. Perhaps, you only visited our team once in the calendar year. That means you can come in and start 2023 with a fresh smile and a clean bill of dental health.
Depending on your policy, you may also be able to use your dental benefits to arrange a consultation with your dentist. Perhaps you have a loose filling or dental crown. Maybe you’re considering tooth replacement to restore your smile. We can arrange treatment as soon as possible to help you use your expiring benefits before they run out.
Another option is replacing a damaged nightguard if you cannot wear it. Dentists prescribe or create nightguards to treat bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching). Without treatment, bruxism can cause multiple complications, including tooth fractures, headaches, jaw pain, and TMJ.
If you are unsure how much dental benefit you have remaining, we encourage you to contact your provider. A team member can also help you determine coverage through the end of the year.
