With 2013 coming to an end, Great Expression Dental Centers (GEDC) would like to offer a few options to keep in mind to ensure you get the most of your insurance by not letting your flex spending dollars go to waste. Dental coverage resets on January 1, so GEDC wants to help you get the most out of your insurance and flex dollars in 2013 before they’re gone.
Flex Money Spending Tips:
· Teeth Cleaning
Although procedures such as teeth whitening are not allowed, using the extra money on getting another teeth cleaning is always beneficial. Teeth cleanings help prevent major dental problems. Give yourself clean teeth, a healthy mouth and a shining smile to start your new year off strong.
· Dental X-rays
Dental X-rays are a useful tool dentists use to detect damage and disease that may not be visible during a regular dental exam. Pay for these helpful X-rays with your flex spending money to ensure your teeth are in tip-top shape.
· Restorative Treatments
If you have damage to your tooth due to decay or cavities, dentists recommend restorative treatments such as a filling or crown. Using your flex spending money on this will allow you to get your teeth back to their normal function and shape.
Everyone dreams of having perfect, straight teeth. If you are looking to straighten-up your chompers, now is the time. Braces can be expensive, but do not worry; your flex spending money allows you to get a head start on straightening them up! In addition, a compliment to braces is Invisalign®.
