Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Epsom Dental Care

by | Nov 3, 2021 | Dental Insurance

As we near the end of the year, Epsom Dental Care wanted to share a tip that can help you take full advantage of any dental insurance benefits you may have.

2021 will soon be coming to an end, and so will your dental benefits for the year. Your Belmont WA dentist would like to remind you to schedule your dental appointments as soon as possible to fully utilise your 2021 dental insurance benefits. These benefits typically expire on December 31.

Here are some important reasons to consider utilising your dental insurance coverage before the year wraps up:

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.

Take Full Advantage of Your Dental Insurance Benefits

If you have any unused benefits, then it’s time to schedule an appointment so you can make the most of your available coverage.

Since insurance coverage is usually based on the calendar year, it’s a “use it or lose it” situation. When the clock strikes 12mn on December 31, then your current benefits are gone.

With the holiday season upon us, it can be tricky to fit everything in. But it’s a great opportunity to prioritise your health. Contact Epsom Dental Care right away so we can book an appointment that works well with your schedule.
