Most people will only grow two sets of teeth during their lifetime...
Occasionally, someone will have three, but two is the norm. The first set is supposed to fall out to make way for the second set - which has to last for the rest of that person's life. Protecting those teeth is of the upmost importance.
People today are living longer than they ever have before, so their teeth need to last just as long as they do. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Adult tooth loss is a common, but unfortunate occurrence.
- How well are you protecting your teeth?
- Do you regularly see the dentist for cleanings and check-ups?
- What about your family's teeth?
She has Dental Insurance:
Many people do not regularly visit the dentist because they do not have dental insurance. Whether they can't afford it, or feel they don't need it, these people are risking adult tooth loss and other dental problems. Regular visits to the dentist are necessary to keep your teeth happy and healthy. Many companies exist that can provide good and affordable dental insurance coverage, but most people simply don't take the time to seek them out.
Most companies today are cutting back on benefits to reduce costs and one of the first things to go is the dental plan. That means that more and more Americans have to find individual dental insurance companies. The time it takes to research these companies and find the best deal is minimal compared to the headaches (and toothaches) that can come from not having dental insurance when you need it. HealthFirm urges those without dental insurance to look into an individual dental insurance plan, and - more importantly - to take preventive steps with proper dental care to avoid dental problems altogether.
