If this sounds like you, take this as your sign that you need to pick up the phone and book an appointment today! This is because Centurion Day Hospital is now offering a 50% discount on dental copayments to all of our valued patients. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to get the care you need without having to break the bank.
What is a Dental Copayment?
A dental copayment is a fixed amount that a patient is responsible for paying out of pocket for a specific dental service. For example, if you are asked to make a copayment for a filling, you would first pay the required amount before the procedure, and your insurance would cover the rest. By offering a 50% discount on dental copayments, we want to help patients get quality care at a more affordable price. Copayments can often vary depending on the procedure being performed and your medical aid plan.
The Dangers of Delaying Dental Work
Dental problems don’t tend to go away on their own, and delaying treatment will most likely lead to more serious issues and higher costs down the road. Patients are therefore encouraged to seek dental care as soon as a problem arises, and before a minor issue becomes a major one. This also highlights the importance of keeping up with regular dental check-ups and cleanings, so that any problems can be identified as soon as possible.
We’ve all been guilty of putting off dental work at one time or another. Maybe it’s the cost, fear of the dentist, or just plain old procrastination. But the truth is, delaying dental work for too long can be dangerous. A small cavity that could have been easily filled can turn into a painful root canal or even tooth loss if left untreated. Postponing dental work can also lead to severe pain and discomfort. Toothaches, gum disease and other oral health issues can cause a lot of pain that affects your daily life and can even impact your mental health.
Another danger of postponing dental work is that it can affect your overall health. Poor oral health has been linked to a number of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes and even certain cancers. So by taking care of your oral health, you’re also taking care of your overall health.
Arrange a Consultation
If you’re not sure what dental work you need, you will first have to schedule a consultation with a dental practitioner. During this session, they can evaluate your oral health and make recommendations about necessary treatments, based on their assessment.
