It can be daunting to hear that 2018 is winding down, but the fact is, it is. The end of a calendar year can be a great time to check in on yourself, your financial health, your goals, and your oral health. When checking in on your smile at the end of the year, there are a few questions you can ask yourself. Asking and answering these questions can help you stay on top of your smile goals to keep your mouth healthy. The dental team in Mansfield, Texas is here to help you evaluate your goals, wants, and needs for your smile. 

Do you have insurance benefits left?

Most dental insurance plans have benefits that expire at the end of the calendar year. Most dental insurance plans also provide full coverage on preventive treatments like exams, x-rays, and cleanings twice a year. If you have not yet used all of your benefits of 2018, you could be leaving money on the table. More important even than money is your oral health; routine cleanings and exams can help keep your smile in a healthy state.

How are you doing on your smile goals?

You may have big smile goals such as replacing an old crown or getting porcelain veneers. You may have smaller smile goals such as to start cleaning your tongue during every hygiene session. Whether you have big goals or small, the end of the year is a good time to check in on your progress. If you have not yet accomplished much, get in to get the assistance of your dentist.
