July 30, 2015

You take care of your teeth and don’t have any major dental issues. If you’re one of the 108 million Americans that lack dental coverage, you might ask yourself,

“Do I really need it?”

Yes, you really do. Here’s why:

• You’ll be more likely to visit the dentist.

It’s a fact -- people with dental coverage visit the dentist more often than those without coverage. And, people who visit the dentist more often have better oral and overall health.

• You might be happier.

Dental coverage is a significant factor in overall well-being. Americans who have dental coverage are 14% more likely to report high overall well-being, compared to those without dental coverage.

• Your body will benefit.

Your mouth is a window to your overall health. Your dentist can detect signs of nutritional deficiencies, general infections and even more serious systemic diseases.
