With the calendar flipping to 2023 soon, you probably find yourself thinking about what this year has in store for you. New Year’s resolutions can be great for self-improvement, but don’t get so bogged down thinking about them that you forget to schedule a dental checkup. On that note, your dentist in Oklahoma City is here to discuss some reasons why getting that cleaning and exam done early in the year can pay dividends.

Get Going Strong in 2023

You probably aren’t wanting to risk dental issues late next year. After all the delicious food that you had over the holidays, it is probably time that you have your teeth checked out. If your dentist finds any small issues now, like tooth decay or gingivitis, they can be treated before becoming more serious.

Having a small filling now can help you to avoid the need for a root canal in the future. Few things can ruin exciting plans faster than an agonizing toothache. There is no reason to carry on with a smile that’s anything other than healthy.

Capitalize on Your Dental Benefits

Millions of Americans have dental insurance through their job or other means. If you have dental insurance, you probably already know that your benefits renew at the beginning of the calendar year. This means that you are once again responsible for paying your annual deductible.

By going to your dental office in January, you can get this payment over with so that you don’t need to worry about it again until 2024. This is great if you have multiple dependents on your insurance plan. You don’t want to end up with any unnecessary surprises later in the year.

Soon enough, you will have all sorts of events, meetings, and other appointments. Your dentist’s schedule is filling up quickly, too.
