It’s about that time of year again! It’s time to look at your dental benefits and use up any that you have left before they expire at the end of the calendar year. We always make an effort to remind our patients of this each year because we hate to see people lose these benefits. Many people don’t realize that if you don’t lose them by December 31, you lose them. No good!

You work hard for your dental coverage and those premiums aren’t cheap. The last thing you want to do is essentially throw away those benefits by not using them up! If you haven’t been in to see us lately or you’ve previously discussed a dental treatment, this is your reminder to book your next appointment today! 

Here are some ways you can use up your unused dental benefits before the end of the year:


Whether you need Invisalign Express for some lower teeth crowding or a full Invisalign treatment, your dental benefits can definitely be applied to the total cost. Many people are surprised to learn that Invisalign generally costs about the same as traditional braces. Of course, every case is unique, so give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and set you up with a consultation so we can give you a personalized cost estimate.

Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth that you haven’t done anything about yet, now is the perfect time to get a dental implant. Implants are a permanent solution to replace one (or more) missing teeth. First, we surgically place a titanium post into the jawbone to mimic the root of your missing tooth. Then we create a prosthetic tooth that looks and functions just like the rest of your teeth!

Dental implants are one of the most reliable and accessible options; they have a 98% success rate. They’re natural-looking, durable, convenient, and you’ll be able to eat, speak, and smile comfortably again.

Dental Exam & Cleaning

Has it been six months or more since your last cleaning? If so, we want to see you! You may be thinking, “My teeth are perfectly healthy. I’ve never had a cavity or a toothache. Why should I take time out of my busy schedule and spend my hard-earned money on a dental exam?”

Well, even the healthiest mouths have bacteria and are vulnerable to disease. Nearly three-quarters of American adults have gum disease, and most don’t realize it. Regular dental exams mean we can detect and treat gum disease in its earliest stages before it becomes a serious issue.

Don’t Lose Your Benefits!

There’s still plenty of time left to get you on our calendar before the year is up! Whether you just need a cleaning and exam or you want to discuss something a little more involved, we will gladly help you make the most out of your unused dental benefits! You deserve to love your smile, and the Sugar Fix Dental Loft team can make sure you look and feel your best in time for the holidays!
