Use Your 2021 Dental Benefits Soon!

fort worth dental benefitsThe end of 2021 may be coming soon, but it’s not too late to start treatment with Invisalign®! In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist is talking about using your 2021 dental benefits or health savings funds before they expire at midnight on December 31st, so you can obtain a straighter smile with clear aligners.

Don’t Let Them Expire

Instead of letting your 2021 dental insurance benefits and health savings funds expire at the end of December, you can use them to help correct your uneven smile. First, contact our team to schedule a consultation and talk to our office staff about your coverage. We can help you find out what remains of your benefits and what is covered by your insurance plan. If you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, we could help you find a treatment that fits within your diet and helps you obtain a straighter smile, and this could include our Invisalign® aligners!

The Exam and Choosing Treatment

First, with iTero® and other advanced digital scanning technology, we will carefully examine your teeth, roots, jaw, and oral structure, and also assess the cause and extent of your misalignment. From there, we can choose the best treatment option. For children, this is a phased approach that starts with teeth spacers and retainers. For teens and adults, we could recommend Invisalign® aligners, which uses a series of clear and practically invisible aligners to correct misalignment. If you do require metal braces, we could use ceramic brackets and clear bands to make them much less noticeable!

Benefits for Your Smile

By correcting your misalignment, you make brushing and flossing each day much easier. This means you can reduce your risk of bad breath, teeth stains, tooth decay, and even gum disease. An even smile also ensures a balanced one, so you’re less likely to develop painful disorders like TMD or bruxism I(teeth grinding) due to jaw joint strain or bite imbalance. You can also smile with confidence, and feel good when meeting someone new. If you have any questions about your current coverage amounts, or about starting treatment now, let us know. We can begin your treatments before the hectic holiday season starts, and continue in 2022 to help you enjoy a straighter, healthy set of teeth.
