One important thing to know is that good oral hygiene contributes to overall health, not just how a person looks on the outside. There are many reasons why you should invest in dental insurance and here are three of the main ones.

  • Health: As mentioned, oral health has a direct correlation to the body's overall health. Statistics show that there are more than 100 symptoms that can show up in the mouth that are related to health issues, not our oral health as a whole. For instance, those with heart disease or diabetes will find that having poor oral health exasperates the condition. Inflammation from periodontal disease is one of the main problems that can cause inflammation in the blood vessels, leading to a number of issues such as a stroke or heart attack.

  • Appearance: Most people want to look good and broken, discolored or crooked teeth can affect anyone's confidence. While the specifics of each policy can differ as to what is and isn't covered in cosmetic surgery, most policies cover routine and preventative dental care that helps with the appearance. Many policies also help with the cost of bridge work and orthodontics for straightening crooked teeth.

  • Emergencies: One of the most important reasons to have dental insurance is in case of an emergency. We can't plan for a broken tooth, infection or cavity, yet these are things that have to be taken care of when it happens. Without dental insurance, the costs can be exorbitant and many people cannot afford a large bill at once. Most dental clinics don't offer a payment plan and even those that do will require an up-front payment. By having dental insurance, the emergency procedures will be less likely to put a huge dent in your budget.

There are so many reasons why dental insurance is important and even though it may not seem like a must-have expense, it's there when needed for emergencies, your overall health and your appearance.
