A Flexible Savings Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) are pre-tax benefit accounts that are used to pay qualified medical expenses not covered by your health insurance. The money you put into FSA and HSA healthcare are not taxable so you save on taxes and keep more in your paycheck. If you have an FSA and your employer allows, you may be able to carry over $550 but no more, to the new year. Make sure you use your money before you lose it. 2020 is coming to an end, so contact us to schedule an appointment. An HSA has no limit to how much money you can carryover for the coming year. Non cosmetic dental expenses are included in both of these health benefits accounts.
During the pandemic, a rise in dental issues across the U.S. including here at our practice has occurred. There has been an uptick of TMJ and tooth fractures. Read more about how the TMJ increase may be caused by at-home improvised workstations that don’t provide the correct posture support. Posture directly effects the jawbone that is connected to the skull. Tooth cracks and fractures are most likely due to the added stress which increases clenching and grinding; a night guard can help prevent cracked teeth. If you are experiencing any of these problems, please make an appointment.
