Don’t Let Your Dental Benefits Vanish Unused!

houston dental benefits

Do you have dental insurance or possibly a health savings account? If so, then you could have benefits or funds that may disappear at the end of December unless used. Don’t let this happen! In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist talks about how you can use these benefits before they’re gone.

Dental Insurance and Health Savings Account

If you have dental insurance, then you have a select number of benefits you can use in a year, and if you haven’t used them all they simply vanish on December 31st. Likewise, many health savings accounts don’t have funds that roll over, and you can lose them. Don’t let this happen, contact our team now to schedule a visit with our team. You can undergo treatment before the hectic holiday season blows up your calendar, and ensure you and your family start 2023 with bright and healthy smiles.

The Exam and Cleaning Appointment

Everything starts with a dental checkup. This exam is a chance for our team to take a close look at your smile for signs of trouble, so we can treat them before they threaten smile stability. Our team uses digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. We typically look for signs of tooth decay, dental infection, and gingivitis or gum disease. We also watch for TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding), and may screen for oral cancer too. In the same sitting, we will clean the teeth by using an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool to break up and remove all plaque and tartar from your smile. This helps fight bad breath and remove teeth stains, and can also limit the risk of cavities and even gum disease.

Our Treatment Options

We also have a full assortment of treatment options to help address your concerns before the year comes to a close. For example, we can place lifelike fillings and crowns to address decay and infection, ensuring a natural looking appearance. In addition, our team can provide cosmetic treatments, like teeth whitening, bonding and contouring, and porcelain veneers to transform the beauty of your smile. If you have missing teeth, then we can fill these gaps with lifelike dental bridges, dentures, and even dental implants. Not to mention our custom oral appliances for a comfortable treatment for TMD, bruxism, and even sleep apnea. If you have any questions, then contact our team today to learn more.


We would love to help you and your family start 2023 with a healthier smile. If you have questions or need to set up an appointment, contact your Houston, TX, dentist, Dr. Chan, by calling 713-926-8896.
