Why the End of the Year Is the Perfect Time to Start Invisalign Treatment

Posted .

And just like that, it is already Holiday Season 2020. For some people, this year flew by, and for others, it felt like a decade. While 2020 might feel like it’s over, there is still plenty of it left, and this is actually an ideal time to begin an Invisalign treatment if you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth (and avoid metal braces). Why? That’s exactly what we’re going to explain in today’s blog!

Save With Your Dental Insurance Before It Expires

If you have a dental insurance plan, then you may know that it has what is called an annual maximum, which is the highest amount of money it will pay for care in a year. On average, this is about $1,500 per person on the plan. Most patients don’t come close to using all of this! Unfortunately, as soon as January 1st rolls around, any leftover money (whether it’s $50 or $1,000) will not carry over and go back to the insurance company. This means that you essentially lose benefits you have already paid for!

What Does This Have to Do with Invisalign?  

“Does dental insurance cover Invisalign in Powell?” In many cases, yes! Instead of waiting until 2021 to start Invisalign, you can begin the process now and use the benefits you have left before your annual maximum resets. It’s important to know that deductibles are separate for routine dental procedures and orthodontics, generally.  In other words, if you paid a deductible for a root canal, it doesn’t go towards the deductible for orthodontics.
