Using Your Benefits Before They’re Lost

austin dental benefits

In just a few weeks, we’ll be saying goodbye to 2021. Which means you have dental benefits that could expire before you use them! In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists will discuss why you should schedule a visit soon to put your benefits to good use and end the year with better oral health.

Dental Insurance and Health Savings Accounts

If you carry dental insurance, then you have benefits that you can use each year, and they will expire at midnight on December 31st. Likewise, if you have a health savings account, then you have funds that could also expire before you put them to good use. Instead of letting this happen, schedule an appointment with our team. We can help you understand your benefits and what is available to use, and plan treatment that fits within your budget. You can then sue your coverage and also undergo care before the holiday season wreaks havoc on your schedule!

Starting with a Dental Exam

We will begin with a dental exam, which enables our team to take a close look at your entire smile with digital imaging technology. A diagnosis is then created with precision and accuracy, and we can discuss treatment options to return your smile to full function and health. People who avoided the dentist due to their valid COVID-19 concerns could have issues that have grown more severe with time, and need to be addressed soon to avoid worsening discomfort or tooth loss. We look for common issues like tooth decay and dental infection, as well as gingivitis and gum disease. We also screen for oral cancer, and watch for jaw joint issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding.)

Treatment for the Whole Family

Our general procedure includes checkups and cleanings for people of all ages, and fluoride treatments and dental sealants to protect children from cavities. We can discuss solutions for sleep disorders, as well as TMJ disorder or bruxism. For cases of tooth decay, we could place a lifelike filling in one visit. A custom crown could address cracked or chipped teeth, or repair advanced decay or infection. For cosmetic problems, we could brighten teeth with professional teeth whitening, or reshape smiles quickly with dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, bridges, and dentures, so you can smile with confidence again.

If you have any questions about our treatments, or if you would like to schedule a visit for you or a member of your family, then give us a call today.
