Sink Your Teeth Into Health

Did you know oral health has a huge impact on your overall health?

Like other areas of the body, the mouth is full of germs. Those germs are mostly harmless. But the mouth is the entry to the digestive tract. That’s the long tube of organs from the mouth to the anus that food travels through. The mouth also is the entry to the organs that allow breathing, called the respiratory tracts. So sometimes germs in the mouth can lead to disease throughout the body.

Make sure you visit the dentist twice a year for your regular cleaning.

Having poor oral health can include conditions like:

  • Gingivitis, when bacteria infect your gums. It’s a mild, early form of gum disease.
  • Periodontal disease is a gum infection that leads to inflamed gums and bone loss around teeth.
  • Tooth decay, like from untreated cavities.

Can it be covered by Insurance?

With some dental insurance plans, you won’t need to worry about cost because preventive care is covered at 100% from day one when you visit a network provider. Ask me about which ones offer this!

Insurance can be confusing and overwhelming. I’d love to help you find affordable coverage that fits your unique needs.

Here are links to two carriers that offer dental coverage. Please reach out to us for advice on which carrier and plan will best fit your needs and budget.
