As early as 2600 B.C. oral care has taken note as something of great importance. That’s right! The early Egyptians show
signs of having oral health specialists. But it wasn’t until the 1700s that maintaining good oral health care became much easier.
Since then, many medical practitioners have noted strong connections between good oral health and overall health. Referencing an article by The Mayo Clinic, you can get clues about your overall health by looking at your oral health. Your mouth has bacteria -mostly harmless. But keep in mind your mouth is the entry point to your digestive & respiratory tracts. Some of this bacteria can cause disease.
Since problems in our mouth can affect the rest of our body, it would seem important to not only do your daily brushing and flossing exercises but also maintain a healthy relationship with your dentist.
Many people will avoid the dentist if they do not have dental insurance. There is a fear of extraordinary costs tied to oral care. Without any protection in place, the outcomes can be quite frightening.
There are various solutions for solving this issue: traditional dental insurance, discount dental programs, and plans encapsulated inside a Medicare Advantage Plan. Each offers its own specifications for coverage.
If you have any questions about the different types of coverage, I have been studying this topic quite heavily over the past few months and would be more than happy to help you. I am just a phone call away, 720-626-6524.
