Use Those Benefits Before You Lose Them

houston dental benefits

Can you believe that 2021 is coming to an end in a few weeks? Which means if you would like to see us and use your dental benefits before they expire in December, then you should contact us soon. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist talks about how we can help you use your hard-earned benefits before you lose them!

Your Dental Insurance Benefits

At midnight on December 31st, any 2021 dental insurance benefits that haven’t been used will expire. You then have a waiting period before your 2022 benefits are ready to use. If you also happen to have a health savings account, again you have funds that could potentially not roll over and expire as well. Instead of waiting for these to vanish, you paid for them after all, why not use them to help your smile? When you contact our team, we can schedule a tie to see you soon before the hectic holiday season makes your schedule too busy. Our office staff knows how to navigate dental insurance and can help you find out what is available to use. We would love to help you start 2022 with a better smile!

The Checkup and Cleaning Visit

Scheduling a checkup and cleaning visit is the first step. After all, we want to take a close look at your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. This enables us to make a diagnosis with accuracy and precision, and identify any issues as they develop. We look at your teeth, gums, roots, jaw, and oral structures for the warning signs of everything from cavities and gum disease to oral cancer, TMJ disorder, and even bruxism (teeth grinding). In the same visit, we will clean your teeth with an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool, which lowers the risk of tooth decay and gum disease and helps prevent bad breath and teeth stains.

Our Treatment Options

We have treatments for kids and adults alike, designed to address common issues and restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. From preventive treatments for gingivitis and gum disease, to care for cavities in the form of lifelike fillings and crowns, we can help smiles of all ages. We also have solutions for missing teeth, such as dental implants, or cosmetic treatments to brighten smiles and address issues with the shape and color of the teeth, or to even mask embarrassing gaps in your smile! If you have any questions, give us a call today.


We would like to help kids and adults alike start 2022 with a smile free of decay or disease. For more information on how our team can help your family obtain optimal oral health, then contact your Houston, TX, dentist, Dr. Chan, by calling 713-926-8896.
