New Year’s has come and gone, so it’s officially 2024 now. You’re likely prepping for the current calendar at this point. Amid your other tasks, though, don’t forget about oral care. You should try to get a dental checkup early in the year. By doing so, you’ll enjoy several worthwhile perks. Your Harker Heights dentist can explain more if you’d like. So, read on to learn four reasons for getting a dental checkup in early 2024.

Clean Up From the Holidays

While the 2023 holidays are over, their effects can still linger. Your teeth might be dealing with the aftermath of cookies, candy canes, and other festive treats. Left unchecked, the sugar from these sweets may decay your pearly whites and cause cavities.

Luckily, an early dental checkup would resolve this issue. It’d clean your smile before plaque could do anything. From there, you’d begin the year without severe oral problems.

Meet Your Deductible

Remember, benefits from dental insurance don’t “roll over.” They reset at the beginning of each calendar year. As such, you’ll need to pay your deductible (again) before you get them back. If you don’t, your treatment costs will be wholly out-of-pocket.

All that said, an early checkup would meet your deductible quickly. You’d then enjoy your dental benefits for most of 2024. In other words, you’d save money on oral needs for many months.

Set a Visit While You Can

As the new year starts, feeling relaxed and sluggish is easy. Early January doesn’t have many meetings or appointments to track. Still, you can make great use of this time with a dental checkup.

If you didn’t already know, slots for dental visits fill quickly. Failing to book one early can mean waiting months to see a dentist. Should that happen, your oral health will be at risk. Therefore, work to avoid that outcome and book a visit soon.

Start 2024 On a High Note

Often enough, how you start a year can impact its later qualities. Good choices made in January can pay off by December. Therefore, make 2024 great by getting a dental checkup.

You see, starting the year with a nice smile has perks. It can lead to good impressions with friends, family, and coworkers. Over time, those interactions can trigger opportunities – romance, promotions, etc. You’d then reap many rewards and enjoy a higher quality of life.

Indeed, it’s a good idea to get a dental checkup early. Given that fact, visit your local dentist soon!
