Warrnambool Dental – Top 4 Reasons to Use Your Dental Insurance Now

by | Nov 23, 2019 | Dental Insurance

Did you know that you can save hundreds of dollars by using your dental benefits before the year ends, while also improving your smile and health, while decreasing dental costs in the future?

Just another reason to call Warrnambool Dental and schedule an appointment to use all your benefits!

It’s the holiday gift you can give yourself! The end of the year is a time of celebration and social gathering, and it’s even better if you’re flashing an attractive smile.

Take advantage of your unused benefits to provide yourself with a stunning smile for the end of this year and going forward to the next one!

The following are some of the reasons to use your dental insurance before the year changes.

1. Yearly Maximum

The yearly maximum is the largest amount of money that a dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. This amount varies among insurance companies, but the average is around $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, they do not roll over to the next year.

2. Premiums

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, or other dental issues.

3. Fee Increases

Another reason to use your benefits before the year ends is the possibility of fee increase. 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 also make your expenses higher.

4. Dental Problems Can Worsen

By delaying dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive treatment in the future. What may be simple tooth decay today, could turn into a root canal problem later in time. Call your dentist and book an appointment to use those benefits.
