The key to better oral health is preventive care. That’s why Delta Dental of Minnesota, along with your dentist, encourage regular dental visits to check for early signs of dental issues and to reinforce preventive care practices at home, like brushing and flossing. Dental insurance usually covers cleanings and exams at 100 percent so you can get important preventive care at no additional cost.
You may not think taking care of your teeth is as important as getting your yearly physical, but your oral health does affect your overall health and daily routine. In fact, did you know U.S. children miss more than 51 million hours of school each year due to dental related illnesses? And among adults, more than 164 million work hours are lost each year because of dental problems.
So, visit your dentist every 6 months and stay on top of your cleanings and x-rays. It will save you time and money on more extensive procedures in the future.
