Ok I want you to sit back and think again, but this time instead of your kitchen, I want you to think of your car.
You know how you take all those preventative measures with your car, like getting your oil changed, and your transmission fluid replenished, and you rotate the tires. You do all of this to keep your car running like new, and because it saves you money in the long run.
Now replace the car with your mouth… You have to take preventative measures for your mouth in order to keep it shiny and new. And that’s where dental insurance comes in…
Every year your insurance allots you a certain amount of money for coverage per year to take care of all your preventive measures, like getting your teeth cleaned and routine check ins with your dentist.
But… if you don’t use it, you lose it! Your preventative measure money doesn’t roll over to the next year. And treatment recommended that was small may become a problem for you as time passes by.
So, if you have been waiting to get that checkup, cleaning, or treatment scheduled it’s time to stop putting it off. Most insurance plans renew on the 1st of the year, which means time’s running out.
Also, another important thing to consider is that every year, based on inflation, materials and supplies tend to increase. So that procedure or cleaning you need done now will most likely be cheaper in 2018 than it will be next year.
Don’t let the insurance companies win, don’t let them just keep your coverage money! Let you win! Use it, don’t lose it!
