Norlane Dental Surgery – Top 4 Reasons to use Your Dental Insurance Now
The end of the year is fast approaching. Before 2019 ends, your dentist at Norlane Dental Surgery encourages you to make the most of your dental benefits, to help you keep healthy teeth during the holiday season and a bright smile for life.
We take pride in doing everything possible to help you and your loved ones maximise your dental insurance.
Listed below are the reasons to use your dental insurance before the year changes.
1. Yearly Maximum
The yearly maximum is the highest amount that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. This amount varies by the insurance company, but the average is $800 per year, per person. The yearly maximum usually renews every year (every January 1st if your plan is based on a calendar year). If you have unused dental benefits, these will not roll over to the next year.
If you are paying premium dental insurance every month, you should be using your benefits. Even if you don’t need any treatment, you should always have your regular dental scale and clean to help prevent and detect any early signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other dental issues.
3. Fee Increases
Another reason to use your benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Some dentists increase their rates at the start of the year due to the increased cost of living, materials and equipment. A fee increase can drive your expenses higher.
4. Dental Problems Can Worsen
By delaying any dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive treatment in the future. What may be simple tooth decay now, could turn into a root canal problem later in time. Call your dentist and schedule an appointment to use those benefits.
