1) You’re already paying for it!If you already have dental coverage, you are most likely already paying for dental treatment, regardless of whether or not you have been using it. It really makes more sense to utilize coverage you already have, before it expires, especially when it affects your health. Most dental plans run from January to December, and since deductibles restart annually, it can save you a great deal of money to get any needed work done this year, so you don’t have to pay additional out-of-pocket costs next year, when your plan renews. It’s never good to put off dental care to try to save money, because in the long run it could cost you more money. This is especially true if your deductible is higher next year.
2) An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.Sometimes people put off going to the dentist towards the end of the year because they’re so busy and they don’t think they have any immediate issues. However, regular appointments can ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy, and prevent problems before they start. It’s also important to go for your appointments whenever you are due for them, because dental exams and X-rays can catch problems early, so you can get them treated properly, before they progress further. If you wait too long to take care of your dental health, you may end up needing more costly procedures to take care of more serious conditions.
