Girl at DentistOver 100 million people in the United States don't have dental insurance. At first glance, it is understandable that many of these people never see a dentist because they would have to pay for the service out of their own pocket, but unfortunately the consequences often go beyond tartar build-up on those not-so-pearly whites.

There are many significant health problems that could be avoided with a trip to the dentist. A problem with gum disease is that it could be a precursor to heart problems or a stroke. Pregnant women with gum disease are also at risk for pre-term labor.

In addition, diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, leukemia, oral cancer and pancreatic cancer often provide clues that become evident during a dental exam. Digestive problems including irritable bowel syndrome may be exacerbated by complications with the ability to chew or break down food in the mouth.

Most people would never miss a physical with their primary physician, but since a dentist is often the first person to notice the beginning stages of a health problem, it is important to make that appointment a priority too. Dental appointments are about so much more than polishing teeth and flossing. The mouth is a window into the body and it's not an exaggeration to state that, in some cases, a dentist has saved lives through early detection of more serious health problems.

If you don't have dental insurance through your employer, you're not out of luck. Individuals can purchase their own affordable policies that will help defray some of the cost of work done at dental appointments. This insurance is available to everyone and is a small price to pay to prevent both dental and general health problems. If you're ready to make dental check-ups a priority, contact your independent insurance agent to get more information.
