Research has shown a direct relationship between our dental health and our overall health. Our mouth is the main portal into our bodies so poor oral health can have adverse affects on the entire body. It is possible for bacteria from our mouths to get into our bloodstream, causing infection, followed by inflammation. Poor Dental Health can lead to cardiovascular disease, pregnancy complications, dementia, cancer, respiratory infections and even diabetes.
Studies indicate that individuals without dental coverage are not as likely to receive regular dental care. This leads to higher costs when a person visits, because they only do so when there is a problem. This can also be the harbinger of more serious health issues, linked to poor oral health (like heart disease and diabetes). Taking the precaution of regular checkups, along with Dental Insurance, is key to keeping yourself healthy and reducing medical expenses.
