The new year has begun, which means it’s time to start thinking about your goals for 2022. Are you hoping to improve your oral health or save on dental care? You can get a head start on both of these goals by scheduling a dental checkup as soon as possible if you haven’t already. By having your teeth examined by a trustworthy dentist now, you can enjoy these 4 benefits that will have you grinning from ear to ear as the year marches on.
1. It Will Be Easier to Fit Your Appointments into Your Schedule
For many dental practices, the few weeks after the holidays are some of the slowest of the entire year – and as a patient, that’s good news for you! Slower business at the dentist’s office means there will be more appointment times available when you call. You’ll have more freedom in choosing an appointment time that fits with your own schedule. Moreover, because your dentist will have fewer patients to see, they may be able to spend more time speaking with you face-to-face, giving you a chance to ask whatever dental questions have been on your mind.
2. You Can Start Using Your Renewed Insurance Benefits Right Away
A lot of dental insurance policies reset at the start of the calendar year, meaning you’ll have the maximum amount of coverage available for any dental work that you need. If there’s a procedure that you weren’t able to have completed before the end of 2021 for whatever reason, you now have the chance to move forward with your treatment while taking advantage of your renewed insurance benefits. This is also a good chance to plan a strategy for getting the most out of your insurance throughout the year.
3. You Can Catch Dental Problems Early
Many people plan to call their dentist immediately as soon as they realize they have a cavity, but what many don’t realize is that cavities usually don’t hurt at first and can easily be overlooked. Your dentist can identify small cavities during a regular checkup and arrange to have them treated before they start causing severe pain. It’s usually easier – and less expensive – to have cavities repaired while they’re still small. Waiting too long could lead to pricier procedures like root canal therapy.
4. You Can Help Your Smile Look Its Best for the New Year
A dental checkup is a good chance to ask your dentist about cosmetic services like whitening or veneers. Getting rid of the cracks, stains, and gaps in your teeth can boost your confidence and allow you to take your first steps into the new year with a brilliant smile.
The decisions you make early in the year can set the tone for your oral health in 2022. Make sure you’re taking your first steps in the right direction by calling your dentist today for an appointment.
