It’s fun getting caught up with end-of-year holiday plans and excitement, but don’t forget to take advantage of your remaining 2022 dental benefits! 

Most dental insurance benefits run on a calendar year, and whatever’s remaining does not carry over. When it comes to dental care,  “use it or lose it” has special significance! If you have benefits remaining, taking advantage of them before they expire is good for your wallet and oral health. 

Maximize Your 2022 Dental Insurance Benefits

If your insurance runs on a calendar year, there are several good reasons to make sure you get the most out of your annual coverage:

Use Up Your Deductible before It Resets

The deductible is the amount you must pay out of pocket before your insurance plan covers any treatment. Some dental insurance deductibles are as low as $50, so you might be surprised that you’re closer than you think to having your treatment covered. Don’t remember how much you’ve used? Check with your dentist’s insurance coordinator, who will be happy to assist you.

Save on Preventive Dentistry

Many dental insurance plans cover two dental exams and teeth cleanings per year, so be sure not to waste this valuable benefit! Having preventive care before the year ends ensures your teeth and gums are healthy; if your dentist finds cavities or gum disease, they can treat it promptly before it becomes complicated and costly to fix. 

Max out Your Annual Maximums

Your insurance plan has a set amount that it will cover during the calendar year. Every plan varies, but the average annual maximum is around $1,000. If you have dollars remaining, scheduling tooth fillings or other minor treatments before the end of the year can help you save money.
