Some of the plans offered to employees by their employers vary in both covered services and frequency of care. Most basic dental plans provide regular check-ups which include a general exam by your dentist, x-rays on an annual basis, and a thorough cleaning every six months to remove tartar build-up. Other services that may be offered include fluoride treatments, tooth extractions, and fillings. Though a waiting period may be required for more extensive work, orthodontic care and dental surgery are often covered by most dental plans. You may have been uncomfortable and putting off necessary dental work because of the concern for cost.
Contact our office today, and our staff will evaluate your dental benefits to see if there are available services that can help you be more comfortable and maintain dental health.
Remember, in most cases, your plan rolls over December 31st, and any unused benefits expire.
