If you are on the fence about going to the dentist this year, in this blog post, we will explore why it is a good idea.

At Artistic Expressions Dentistry, serving Philadelphia, PABucks County, and Doylestown, PAour team of top dentists are ready to provide excellent dental service for you and your family. Read on to learn the top reasons to visit the dentist before the end of the year.

Insurance Benefits Expire

For those with insurance, you will want to take advantage of your yearly benefits. For many insurance companies, these expire at the end of December, and will renew next year. If you have a Health Savings Account, you can use your remaining balance without additional taxes.

We recommend checking in with your insurance to determine your remaining annual benefits. You have worked hard for your insurance, so be sure to use it to its fullest.

Dental Fees May Increase

Every year, fees are subject to change to due rising costs of dental materials and inflation. Because of this, we recommend getting work completed during the remaining time of the year. You can save some money next year and take care of your teeth now. 

Always Good to Get a Checkup

If you have gone more than six months without visiting a dentist, you are going to want to come in before the end of the year. Stay on top of your oral health with our experts at Artistic Expressions Dentistry. Your dentist can recommend a custom cleaning schedule based on your unique oral health needs. While most individuals can maintain healthy teeth and gums with biannual visits, some may require more frequent appointments – especially those who are prone to gum disease and cavities.

With proper maintenance, you can avoid future, more costly visits. Our goal is for you to have optimal oral health so you can feel proud of your smile.

Existing Conditions Can be Treated Sooner 

It is easier to prevent future problems than fix advanced ones. The sooner we find cavities, gingivitis, and other oral health issues, the better off your teeth will be. 

We would rather treat a small cavity than have to perform root canal therapy. You will save yourself some trouble down the line and have a happier, healthier smile.

Start the New Year Strong

We all want to make 2021 a year to remember – one that brings new light after a very long and difficult year. Begin next year with confidence in your healthy smile. If anything has arisen, you can rest assured that our expert dentists can design a personalized plan for you. The more we know, the better we can treat you.
