It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And it’s also time to use your dental benefits. As the end of the year approaches, most dental insurance benefits are set to expire. And because benefits do not carry over to the next year, unused benefits are of no value. With this in mind, Ft. Lauderdale dentist Dr. Gary Kodish and his team encourage you to schedule dental checkups and other necessary dental care for you and your family now.

Dental implants are an increasingly common way to restore missing teeth as they are a permanent resolution to fill the space. With more than 30 million Americans missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws, implant placement has increased annually by 500,000. While implants are very beneficial and offer numerous benefits when compared to dentures, many run into a certain challenge—finding placement and restoration under one roof.

Now, you don’t have to deal with the headache and hassle because Dr. Kodish from the Kodish Group offers placement and restoration under one roof.
