If you’re paying for extras insurance, make sure you’re getting the most from it before the end of the year. When did you last get your dental checkup? Could you be needing some treatment soon? Are you thinking about whether you could improve your teeth with a whitening treatment or would you like to have them straightened?
Now is the time to talk with your North Shore Dentistry practitioner to see what can be done by the end of the year to improve your teeth and make the most of your extras benefits. Even though nothing seems wrong, that doesn’t mean your teeth are necessarily fine. Regular checkups are vital to maintain good oral health.
While most people know there are payment limits to various treatments, your extras cover also resets annually, most often at the end of the calendar year. First, check when your plan resets and what is still covered if you’ve already had dental work done earlier in the year.
If you’re unsure, check your insurer’s website or give them a call. If you leave it too late to make an appointment, you may not be able to make the most of the extras’ benefits.
If you’re overdue for a checkup, book it now and see whether any further treatments are needed. It’s always better to treat issues early. Even if complex treatments won’t be completed by the year’s end, if you start now you may be able to finish it early next year for a second chance at rebates. If you’re considering having cosmetic dental treatments, such as teeth whitening or Invisalign, then talk with your practitioner about a treatment plan and what can be achieved before 2020.
By talking with your North Shore Dentistry dentist now, they can help you maximise your benefits and plan a schedule.
If you’re behind with checkups or treatments, talk with your North Shore Dentistry dentist about the reasons why you’ve held off. If you’re feeling nervous about visiting the dentist, we can help you overcome your fears with different techniques and procedures, such as sleep dentistry.
Book your appointment with us now so you can make the most of your extras insurance.
