Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for your general health as well. A routine dental exam can detect symptoms of more than 125 diseases including heart disease, diabetes, anemia, stomach ulcers, osteoporosis and kidney disease. The American Dental Hygienists’ Association estimates that for every $1 spent on preventative health care saves you as much as $8 to $50 on future emergency and restorative procedures. Dental Insurance will keep these visits affordable and is a cost effective way to minimize health care costs for you and your family.
