Get Your New Dental Crown Before the Year Ends – Here’s Why!

Filed under: Uncategorized — thirdstreet @ 12:40 am

Are you in need of a new dental crown for a compromised tooth? It may seem like something that you can put off until after the holiday season, but this isn’t necessarily the best idea. You will be missing out on several different benefits if you put it off until the start of 2022. This restoration is crucial for the health of your smile, and you can save your wallet by getting it now. Continue reading to learn why you should get your new crown soon and how your insurance will pay a role.

Why Should You Get a New Dental Crown Now?

Crowns are sometimes needed to restore teeth after an injury, tooth decay, or tooth loss. When you put off getting this restoration, your tooth could end up being damaged further. Here are some of the things that could occur:

  • Exposure to bacteria: If your tooth isn’t being protected by a dental crown, it can wind up enduring more decay, or you could develop a painful infection. This is because it is being exposed to harmful bacteria in your mouth.
  • Irritation of soft tissue: When the damage to your tooth has left it with a rough surface and broken edges, you could end up with sores and irritation of the soft tissue in the mouth.
  • Additional damage: If your compromised tooth isn’t being supported, you’re leaving it vulnerable to break down even more. Without having it treated properly, this will only become more severe. You could even end up in need of a root canal or extraction. In the end, getting a dental crown can help you to avoid a painful dental emergency in the future.

How Do Your Dental Benefits Play a Role?

If you have dental insurance, your unused benefits are likely to expire before the end of the calendar year. Your annual deductible is the amount of money that needs to be paid out-of-pocket each year until you are able to take advantage of your benefits. Each January, this amount resets, so you will be responsible for paying it once again. If you have already met your annual deductible for 2021, you are much more likely to save on a crown by getting it now instead of putting it off.

This isn’t the time to wait. Give your dentist a call so you can get your new restoration before the year ends. This way, you can save your smile and your wallet!
