Did you know that once December ends, so do your 2019 dental insurance benefits? Instead of letting them expire without being used, why not schedule an appointment for you and your family with your Brighton, MA, dentists? In today’s blog, we’ll discuss treatment options to help transform your smile before the New Year begins!

Using Your Insurance

For those with dental insurance or a flex spending account, there are benefits and funds that will simply disappear following December 31st. If you haven’t had a chance to utilize these benefits and address your smile’s health and beauty, do so now! We will look at your coverage and help you understand what is covered and how much, so we can accurately plan treatments that work with your budget. Our team will file for you as well. Don’t let confusion over your coverage prevent you from enjoying a healthier smile!

How Do We Start?

We start with a detailed exam, one employing advanced technology to help our team gain a detailed picture of your oral health. We will look at your teeth and gums for signs of wear, infection, decay, or gingivitis or gum disease. Examining the tooth roots and oral structures with x-ray images allows us to identify other oral health concerns, such as wisdom tooth eruption, infections or abscesses, or even TMJ disorder and teeth grinding. Our team will perform a thorough screening for oral cancer too. The treatment plan we create will take both your current oral health and your smile goals into account. We can plan treatments using your remaining 2019 benefits, and continue care once your 2020 benefits become available.

Treatment Options

With preventive care, we can help you maintain your smile’s health through routine checkups and dental cleanings. We also have periodontal treatment to help manage gum disease and protect your smile from tooth loss. For those desiring a more attractive smile, we have professional teeth whitening, bonding and contouring, lifelike veneers, and even Invisalign® aligners to correct misalignment. If you have restorative issues, such as a cavity or a cracked/chipped tooth, we can administer treatment with a lifelike filling or dental crown. Finally, for those with missing teeth we can craft a custom-made prosthetic, including bridges and full or partial dentures. We also have implant dentistry for a more secure and longer-lasting tooth loss solution.
