New Year, Fresh Smile: 4 Reasons You Should Schedule a Dental Checkup Early

As a new year dawns, it’s the perfect time to set positive intentions for your dental health, including your teeth. If you have dental insurance, there’s a strategic advantage to scheduling your dental checkup early in the year. Most insurance plans reset their maximum benefits at the first of the year, so now is the time to strike while the iron is hot.

Keep reading to discover the many reasons to prioritize your oral health as soon as possible.

1. Meeting Deductibles Quickly

Early appointments help you meet your deductible sooner. This makes later dental treatments more cost-effective. Getting a head start on meeting this financial threshold is a savvy move for the year ahead.

2. Starting with Prevention in Mind

Early-year checkups allow your dentist to detect potential issues in their early stages. This is especially important coming out of the holidays as many people indulge in more sugary and acidic foods. Addressing dental concerns early leads to simpler and less invasive treatments.

3. Time for Comprehensive Treatment Planning

Early checkups provide time for your dentist to create a more comprehensive personalized treatment plan for you. Going in at the middle or end of the year gives little room in your dentist’s schedule to perform more complicated procedures. If you need more extensive work done, you’ll need to give your dentist more time to plan.

4. Avoiding Last-Minute Rush

As the year progresses, dental offices may experience increased demand for appointments. Dentists operate with a set number of appointment slots per day. So, scheduling early ensures you have a broader selection of available dates and times, avoiding the last-minute rush.

Give your oral health a head start by scheduling your dental checkup early in the year. Beyond maximizing insurance benefits, early appointments set the stage for a year of optimal oral health, preventive care, and peace of mind. Make your smile a priority as you reflect on a new year with new possibilities.
