If you’ve always wanted to correct your bite and alignment concerns, but never wanted to deal with the noticeability of brackets and wires, the end of the year is the perfect time to invest in Invisalign. Clear aligners are worn over your teeth to gradually move them into position, so you don’t need to worry about the appearance of metal braces. Although you can start your treatment at any time, there are several benefits of waiting until the end of the year. Here are 4 reasons to begin your journey to a straight smile before the new year.
1. Avoid paying your deductible again.
At the beginning of a new year, your dental insurance is reinstated. As a result, you’ll have to meet your annual deductible before benefiting from your yearly allowance. You can avoid the financial stress by starting your treatment before you need to repay your deductible. If you’ve already reached your deductible, you can use your coverage to help offset the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket for your new smile.
2. Use your insurance coverage before it expires.
Many people ask, “does dental insurance cover Invisalign?” Although every policy differs, most plans that include orthodontia can be used to pay for your clear aligners. Unfortunately, your benefits expire at the end of the year. On average, less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their annual limits, which means you likely have coverage remaining that you might lose. You can make the most of your monthly investment by using your benefits before they expire at the end of the calendar year.
3. Lower your overall dental expenses in the new year.
Nowadays, everyone is looking to save money. You can reduce your oral health expenses by correcting your bite and alignment issues. Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease to prevent needing a costly treatment down the road. By correcting your alignment problems now, you will be making an investment in your smile to decrease your oral health expenses in the upcoming year.
4. Enjoy affordable payment options.
Money can be tight during the last few weeks of the year because of the holidays. As a result, you may not feel you can afford the added expense of Invisalign, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many third-party financing solutions that offer no interest fees for a set number of months, like CareCredit. You are given the funds you need, which you can repay using a plan that accommodates your budget to keep your new smile affordable.
