In the United States most companies offer their employees dental insurance, but yet many do not. They slip through the holes of the system ? the in-betweeners ? that have to pay, but struggle to pay the out-of-pocket expenses.
The in-betweeners have two choices, go without any insurance, go to the dentist and take the full attack on their pocketbook, or don't go to a dentist at all and just wait till the ax to fall. And it will ? there is a 50-50 chance that a toothache will hit you, or if you're married ? your family.
HOW IMPORTANT IS DENTAL HEALTH
There is more to Dental Health than a winning smile or avoiding that terrible toothache ? it is important to your overall health. Let me give you one example.
Joe Smith has just learned that he has diabetes ? how can diabetes affect his teeth. If you do not maintain dental health you can be at risk for:
? tooth decay
? gum disease
? salivary gland dysfunction
? fungal diseases
? infections and delayed healing
These problems can be kept in check with preventive oral health care, 6 month or yearly cleanings.
It is easy to forget our teeth, gums and mouth, but they are definitely part of our physical health and well being. And with the help of a good dental health plan ? you can prevent bone disease, gum disease and infections.
