The Importance of Dental Insurance in Private and Professional Life

dca-blog_article-48_dental-coverage_1200x630

Having access to an affordable dentist is essential for maintaining a healthy smile, but people without dental insurance often avoid seeing a dentist until their condition is advanced. Severe dental problems may be more common because more than half of those with no dental coverage also skip preventative treatments. A lack of dental care has many detrimental results for an unemployed person. Many employers make instant judgments based on appearances, and an attractive smile can be a prerequisite for getting a good job. Sadly, even those who are employed may not have dental benefits.

Dental Care: The Key to a Healthy Smile and More

Missing teeth, bad breath, and extensive tooth decay can destroy self-confidence, and a toothache is undeniably miserable, but not getting proper dental care affects more than just appearance and oral health. Many studies have linked poor dental health with serious and even deadly physical ailments; these include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, low birth weight, preterm birth, and Alzheimer’s disease. Access to an affordable dentist could actually result in better general health.

How Providing Dental Insurance is Good for Business

Most people obtain dental coverage through their employers, and job-hunters are actively seeking it. Offering dental plans can help attract and retain the best employees, and it can improve their productivity once they are hired. People who obtain adequate dental care suffer fewer related illnesses and spend less time off work due to acute dental problems. Given the obvious connections between dental health, overall health, and insurance coverage, the choice to provide dental insurance plans for employees is a wise one.
