This will vary from person to person, depending on what unique services you need to make your oral health 100 percent. Talk with your dentist to determine what services you need to stay healthy. More than likely, a routine dental exam and cleaning is an appointment almost everyone can make before the end of the year – this is a preventive care appointment.
Check over your insurance plan to learn if your insurance covers multiple cleanings every year. If so, make the most of your dental benefits by getting your cleaning in before the holiday-craziness begins and schedules tighten. Also, if you have questions for your dentist or you are 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.
Appointments can often be categorized into two groupings – preventative and elective services.
Preventative dentistry is all about maintaining oral care and preventing oral health problems down the line. This often includes regular cleanings, regular oral exams, routine x-rays, and a oral cancer screening. 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 dental services often fall under the cosmetic 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 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!

If you need restorative dental treatments, otherwise known as large dental treatments, because they are more extensive, and you’ve met your deductible, the end of the year is the perfect time to get these treatments completed! Restorative treatments can include dental implants, dentures, or other services to help restore your smile. 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 at Premier Dental and we can help create a plan to split treatments between year to year if needed and maximize your dental benefits. We would love to work with you and your insurance to create the perfect plan for your treatments to get you and your family the services you want and need!
Also … REMEMBER to check your dental insurance plan to see if your Flexible Spending Account or FSA funds rollover. Most likely, they don’t! Check with our office today to schedule your appointments before the end of the year to make the most of your FSA plan. Your oral health, and your wallet, will thank you.
