Use Your 2019 Dental Benefits Before The Holidays

Once the holiday season arrives, you’re likely to find your schedule is pretty full and making time to see your dentist could be difficult. For many, this means eventually losing your 2019 dental insurance benefits before you have a chance to use them. Your Gary, IN, dentist suggests scheduling a visit today to enjoy an improved smile before 2020 starts!

Dental Insurance and Payment Information

If you do have dental insurance coverage, then you have benefits that will expire after December 31st unless you use them. We can help! We accept most major plans and are ready to file your PPO claims for you. If you call ahead, we will let you know if you are in-network with us or not and can answer any questions you may have. For those without insurance coverage, our team can offer an affordable third-party financing option through CareCredit, a company endorsed by the American Dental Association. Once we start treatment, we can help you use your 2019 benefits, and can continue treatment in 2020 when you next benefits become available.

Getting Started

First, we need to know the extent of your oral health issues, so we will perform a detailed dental exam using advanced technology. X-rays and intraoral cameras enable our team to obtain detailed look at your teeth, gums, roots, and oral structures above and below the gums. We then create a treatment plan to address these concerns. Our team will look for signs of damage, decay, infection, or gum issues, such as gingivitis or periodontal disease. We can screen for oral cancer and also watch out for TMJ disorder and bruxism. While you’re here, we will also clean your teeth thoroughly with an ultrasonic scaler, removing plaque to help preserve the health and appearance of your smile.

Treatment for Kids and Adults

We offer treatment for people of all ages, from preventive treatments to safeguard little smiles against cavities, or custom options to address TMJ disorder and bruxism. For those interested in a more beautiful smile, we can provide professional teeth whitening to remove stains, and bonding and veneers to address issues with a tooth’s shape. Our team provides repair for cavities, infection, and dental damage with fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy. If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, then we can discuss prosthetics, such as dental implants, bridges, or even full or partial dentures.
