4 Reasons to Start the New Year Off with a Dental Checkup

After a year that seemed to last for a decade, 2021 is finally almost here! With the new year, there are plenty of opportunities to better yourself. If one of your resolutions was to keep your mouth healthy, then there is no better way to do that than by visiting your dentist as soon as you can. Here are four reasons why you’ll want to schedule a dental checkup early in the year.

Find Dental Problems Sooner

According to the American Dental Association, most people should see their dentist at least twice a year. At these preventive visits, your dentist will examine your mouth for signs of oral health problems that may have been caused by all of the holiday sweets. The earlier your dentist catches these issues, the simpler (and less expensive) treatment will be.

Make the Most of Your Insurance Benefits

Most dental insurance benefits reset at the beginning of a new calendar year. By scheduling a checkup early on, you can meet your deductible quickly, unlocking coverage for more extensive procedures you may need to undergo later.

Start 2021 with a Beautiful Smile

Once your dentist has examined your smile, a dental hygienist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning. Not only does a professional dental cleaning remove cavity-causing plaque, but it also clears away surface stains, leaving your smile bright.

Plus, there are many cosmetic dentistry treatments you can choose from to improve your smile’s appearance. If you’ve been insecure about your teeth, now is the time to ask your dentist about procedures like in-office teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or Invisalign clear braces. The sooner you begin treatment, the sooner you can enjoy a renewed sense of confidence!

Schedule Your Appointments More Easily

The few weeks after the holiday season are perhaps the slowest time of the year for dental practices. Because your dentist is seeing fewer patients at this time, it will be easier to schedule an appointment at your convenience. The time constraints of your visit might also be less rigid, allowing you more time to talk to your dentist one-on-one for personalized advice on keeping your smile healthy.

A new year is the perfect time to begin working toward your goals. If you’ve decided that 2021 is the year you’re going to feel better about your smile, scheduling a dental checkup is a great place to start!
