Why You Should Use Your Dental Benefits Before the End of the Year - Southview Dentistry Charlotte

Why You Should Use Your Dental Benefits Before the Year Ends

The end of the year is full of activities. Family, school, and work obligations can keep you running constantly, without the time to consider other important things – such as whether you have used all of the health care and dental plan benefits covered by your insurance. When it comes to dental benefits, millions of people each year are ringing in the New Year leaving money on the table. According to the National Association of Dental Plans, only 2.8% of people with PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) dental plan participants reached or exceeded their plans annual maximum. Many people also have Flexible Spending Accounts, which help pay for dental and medical care with pre-tax dollars. 

Whether you’re paying for dental care through a benefits plan or using an FSA, your current plans will most likely run out on December 31. Don’t let your hard-earned dental dollars go to waste. Here is a breakdown of what is flex spending, what these dental benefits are, when you need to use them by and how to make the most of your benefits.

The Truth About Soda and Acid Erosion on Teeth

Not many things are as eye-catching as a perfect smile; it’s the sign of someone who’s dedicated to a solid oral care routine. But there are some conditions that can ruin it faster than it took to perfect. As a result from years of soda drinking, we recently had a patient develop acid erosion to his teeth. This patient came in for a tooth erosion repair in an attempt to turn back on the clock on years of decay. Acid erosion on teeth from soda is one of those ailments to which everyone should pay attention so they can be sure their brushing and flossing still give them the result they expect.

Southview Dentistry Study - Porcelain Onlays

Case Study: Porcelain Onlays

What are Porcelain Onlays? At Southview we use the CEREC machine to mill porcelain onlays for teeth. These are used to restore teeth where cavities or other tooth damage has compromised too much of the tooth for a traditional filling to effectively fix the tooth. Therefore, it’s a great way to preserve as much of the patient’s existing healthy tooth enamel as possible, which is ideal for maintaining a strong, long-lasting and natural mouth.
