DENTAL INSURANCE

From 1989 to 1999 more people visited the dentist
but those with private dental insurance
fell from 40% to 35%.

(SOURCE: Journal of the American Dental Association--2003)

The number of people seeking dental care is rising but the percentage with dental insurance is declining. The good news is that more people understand the value of keeping their teeth, even if they have to pay for all of the treatment themselves. The bad news is that many people are losing benefits they once had. One reason for a decline in dental insurance benefits is that many lack an understanding of how the dental condition can impact general health. Companies need to understand that workers miss millions of work days each year due just to dental pain problems. Preventive dentistry can help reduce worker absence.

Research shows that people who routinely have professional cleanings and examinations, keep more of their teeth and keep them longer. Routine dental visits every 2-6 months are just as important as home care and fluoride efforts to keep teeth for a lifetime. Research also shows those with more teeth and better tooth function are healthier. Ask your boss to consider supplying dental insurance with good benefits for preventive dental office visits at the dentist of your choice. If you do not have dental insurance benefits, put some of your own time and money into your smile. It might help you live healthier, happier and longer.
