Lose it or Use it”: What it means for your Dental Insurance and Your Oral Health

If you have dental insurance, you may have heard the phrase “lose it or use it” before. But what does it actually mean, and how can it benefit your oral health? Let’s take a closer look.

Many dental insurance plans have an annual maximum benefit, which is the maximum amount of money that the insurance company will pay for dental services in a given year. This benefit typically resets at the beginning of each calendar year. If you don’t use up your benefit by the end of the year, you may lose it – hence the phrase “lose it or use it”.

So, what does this mean for your oral health? It means that if you have dental issues that need to be addressed, it’s best to do so before the end of the year. If you wait until the next year, you’ll have to start over with a new annual maximum benefit, and you may end up paying more out of pocket.

At Diamond Dental Care & Implant Centre, we understand the importance of maximising your dental insurance benefits. That’s why we encourage our patients to schedule any necessary dental treatments before the end of the year. Whether you need a routine cleaning, a filling, or a more complex procedure like a dental implant or a root canal, we can help you make the most of your insurance coverage.

In addition to helping you save money, using your dental insurance benefits before the end of the year can also benefit your oral health in the long run. By addressing dental issues promptly, you can prevent them from becoming more serious and more expensive to treat down the line.
