Eventually, you cannot postpone another dental visit. Despite knowing that oral health plays an important role in physical health as well as how you perceive yourself, many people put off seeing the dentist. People with dental insurance have better oral health than those who do not. Here are a few additional reasons obtaining dental insurance makes good sense.

You Seldom Pay the Dentist

When choosing dental plans, most people opt for a plan their dentist accepts. When you see your dentist for routine cleanings and exams typically you pay nothing to your dentist. Dental insurers and providers encourage preventive dental services. Consequently, seeing your dentist and hygienist twice a year for exams and cleaning should cost nothing to you.

More money in your pocket gives you an incentive to see your dentist as scheduled. This means early intervention for potential tooth problems. All of this is good news for you.

You Likely Have Gum Disease

An estimated three out of four American adults have gum disease in some form. Most do not know this. Early detection of gum disease allows deep cleaning and root scaling to halt its progression.

Root scaling removes tartar your toothbrush cannot reach. Tartar allows bacteria to form on teeth and eat through the protective enamel. Removing tartar from the tooth roots not only halts the decay, it may also reverse damage to teeth and gums.

You Have Coverage for Emergencies

Unfortunately, slow decay can progress into the sensitive root portion of your tooth. If you had a large filling years ago, it loosens over time. Bacteria is having a party in your tooth without your knowledge.

Dental insurance means you are less likely to postpone the first signs of a problem tooth. When you have dental coverage, there will be little hesitation to call your dentist. Progress in general dentistry means less pain to you or your pocketbook.

Early Intervention Equals More Teeth

Gum disease and tartar build-up eventually lead to tooth loss. A missing tooth means limiting your diet to softer foods. As you lose more teeth, you stop eating things like fresh fruit, salads and fresh vegetables because you cannot chew them.

A limited diet leads to health problems and disease. Dental insurance encourages early intervention and treatment. You are less likely to lose your teeth with good dental care.

Logic tells you having dental insurance increases your odds of better health. That means a better life for you. Thus, you have a strong incentive to get dental insurance.
