Use It Or Lose It

Insurance companies make millions of dollars each year from individuals who fail to use all their dental allowance. Once the deductible is met for the year, additional services up to a set amount are fully paid! Here's an example, the typical annual allowance is around $1,000. If you have two checkups, cleanings and a set of x-rays, that adds up to about $435 – meaning there’s another $565 left to use on tooth-colored fillings, occlusal guards, dentures and periodontal maintenance. Not sure how much is left of your allowance? Contact the number on the back of your dental insurance card.
