If you have dental insurance, now’s the time to use it! Too many people let their dental insurance policy lapse and they end up paying for dental problems (literally and metaphorically) because of it.
That is far from an ideal situation. If you want to get the most out of your dental insurance, you should make sure that you take advantage of what it offers you during the year. Don’t miss out on any of your benefits.
To get the most out of your dental insurance before the end of the year, schedule an appointment at Parker Nickolas Read Dental in Houston, TX. Call (713) 932-0441 now to plan your visit before 2022 arrives.

Dental plans encourage users to receive preventive services, such as professional cleanings and exams. You can avoid tooth infections, periodontal disease, and tooth loss by making dental checkups before your routine care.
Whenever you get a professional cleaning, you get rid of plaque and tartar buildup. That alone reduces your risk of cavities, gum infections, and other issues. This also is why your plan likely covers all or much of the costs of these routine cleanings.
On the other hand, a professional exam can identify problems in the early stages. By finding those issues while they are small, you can get treatment before they lead to bigger problems.
Don’t Let Time Run Out on Your Benefits
As we enter into fall, we’re only a few months away from the end of the year. That means you still have time sure you’re taking advantage of your dental insurance benefits.
Why does this matter? Dental insurance plans are generally tied to a particular time frame. Many times, that is the calendar year. It’s also important to note that benefits can vary from year to year even if your employer continues to offer dental insurance from the same provider.
Knowing this, to get the benefits of your current plan, you need to take advantage of those benefits while your current plan is in effect.
Plus, you have been paying your insurance premiums every month. If you don’t use your dental insurance, what have you been paying for exactly?
