Most dental insurance companies provide benefits based on a 12 month calendar year. Eligibility is usually from January 1 through December 31. Unfortunately, benefits do not role over into the next year. Any unused dollars that remain on December 31 are kept by the insurance company.
Stated simply, catching a small problem early can prevent major problems later on. The images below can clearly show a very typical scenario. Image A is what we would see upon visible examination. Image B would allow us to diagnose the presence of significant decay. Image C shows how decay penetrates deep into the tooth. Image D shows bleeding from the pulp or chamber where the nerves and blood vessels are housed. Treatment once the nerve is involved is Root Canal Treatment. Only then can restoration of the lost tooth structure can be initiated.
