You take care of your teeth, and you don’t have any major dental issues. So do you really need dental insurance? We’re not just saying this because we’re a dental insurance company, but, yes, yes, you do. Why, you ask?
It’s a pretty simple equation. People with dental insurance visit the dentist more often. And people who visit the dentist more often have better oral health. And your oral health has a strong connection to your overall health.
So it’s not just avoiding costly, painful procedures like cavities, root canals and crowns that’s a benefit of seeing the dentist regularly. Your dentist can also detect signs of nutritional deficiencies, general infection or even more serious systemic diseases in the rest of your body just by looking in your mouth.
Don’t take your oral health for granted.
