Does your dental health insurance plan run out after December 31st? If so, don’t miss out on your end of year dental health benefits. Now is the time to visit Dr. Andrew W Henritze, DDS and our team in Roanoke, Virginia if you haven’t had your preventative care and dental cleanings this year.

Not only is preventative care good for your oral health, but it is good for your budget as well, since most insurance providers pay 100% for receiving preventative care. This means you can maximize your returns with your end-of-year dental cleaning. Getting your smile needs taken care of in the fall season gives your dentist time to address any oral health issues noted during your dental checkup, before the busy holiday season.

So, what can you look forward to during your exam?

-Teeth and gums will be evaluated by our dentist and hygienist. Your overall health will be reviewed along with any medicines you are taking.

-A thorough cleaning and polishing of your pearly whites will be performed.

-Any oral hygiene concerns you have will be addressed, along with any oral issues uncovered during your exam. This includes checking for oral cancer detection.

-X rays may be taken, this is done once a year unless there are oral health issues that may need monitoring.

-If the exam reveals dental problems, treatment will be recommended such as referral to an oral care specialist, further diagnostics, or coming back to the office to receive fillings, crowns, or other restoration.

Our Andrew Henritze DDS team is happy to help you determine the dental treatment covered by your plan. Dr. Andrew W Henritze, DDS and our team look forward to helping you maintain your smile health in Roanoke, Virginia!
