Start the new year off right with a healthy, beautiful smile! As January kicks off, your dental benefits will be reloaded, allowing you to visit the dentist for little to no out-of-pocket cost for preventive and diagnostic treatments. Through visiting your dentist in Keller twice a year, your PPO will cover the cost of preventive appointments to help you maintain a healthy smile. As the new year starts, commit to your oral health with a trip to the dentist.
Why Should I Visit the Dentist Twice a Year?
The ADA recommends that everyone over the age of two years old visits the dentist twice a year for professional dental cleanings and checkups. Preventive care is vital to maintaining your oral health. Too often, people wait until a problem has developed to visit their dentist. By doing so, the cost of care increases as more invasive procedures are needed. But, by visiting the dentist regularly, common dental problems can be prevented to lower the cost of care long-term.
In addition, your oral health is directly linked to impacting your overall health. If you do not visit the dentist regularly, you place your overall health at risk. For example, if you do not have your teeth cleaned twice a year, gum disease is likely to develop. Gum disease is directly linked to causing serious health complications, such as cardiovascular disease.
Why Should I Use My Dental Benefits?
Often, people tend to put off going to the dentist because they fear the cost of care. However, if you have dental benefits, you can visit the dentist twice a year with little to no out-of-pocket cost. PPOs cover two preventive appointments each year. As the new year starts, your dental benefits will be reinstated, allowing you to visit the dentist to start the year with a healthy smile.
Most PPOs will cover the cost of preventive and diagnostic appointments in full. As a result, you will not have to pay anything for examinations, cleanings, x-rays and certain preventive treatments, like tooth sealants and fluoride treatments. However, depending on your dental insurance policy, you may have to pay a co-payment.
In addition to preventive care, your dental coverage provides you with a yearly allowance, which starts over at the beginning of each year. If we should find an issue that requires treatment, your insurance policy may cover the cost of care by as much as 80 percent. As a result, you can restore the health of your smile for a fraction of the cost when compared to paying without dental insurance.
