Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Main Beach Dental

by | Nov 4, 2021 | Smile Design

Do you have dental insurance? If so, you should not view your benefits as just a backup plan to help you out if you ever experience a dental emergency.

Instead, you can see it as an investment that can help you prevent problems from occurring and keep your smile functioning and feeling its best year after year.

How can you use it in that way? Here are the following reasons you need to reap the greatest possible value from your 2021 dental insurance.

Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!

Yearly Maximum

Dental insurance plans have an annual maximum they are willing to pay within a calendar year. If you need any restorative treatments, it makes sense to take advantage of these unused benefits since they don’t roll over into the following year.


The deductible is the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you pay your dentist before your insurance company pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible all over again.


Through your insurance provider, you’re currently paying dental insurance premiums every month; therefore, you should be using your benefits. You should have regular dental cleanings and check-ups looking for early signs of gum disease, cavities, gum recession and even oral cancer.

Fee Increases

Another reason to use your dental benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Most of these fees increases occur at the beginning of the year.

Dental Problems Can Worsen

By delaying your dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and costly treatment. What may be just a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.

Are you using your dental insurance to the full? Time is running out to take advantage of your 2021 benefits!
