Dental insurance less common than cell phones
Updated: 7/27/2009 7:00:21 PM

Dental insurance less common than cell phones While scientific studies show that dental health is extremely important to overall bodily health, the number of Americans without dental insurance has grown by leaps and bounds. Recent studies show that approximately 55 percent of the population has dental insurance, substantially less than the over 80 percent that are believed to be enrolled in some sort of cell phone plan.

An inability to pay for dental care is one of the main reasons cited by the population for avoiding the recommended dental checkups so important to maintaining dental health.

Regular checkups for both adults and children are recommended by dentists because most problems involving dental health can be treated and prevented fairly easily when found in early stages, but become substantially more difficult, painful and expensive as time goes on.

Dental health has a complicated relationship with general health. Dentists have been encouraged to take advantage of checkups to note any dental disease that may be linked to other, more systemic chronic disease. Inflammation of the gums may also indicate inflammation elsewhere and has been linked to such diseases as stroke, heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cognitive decline in old age.

Savings plans are NOT insurance and the savings will vary by provider, plan and zip code. These plans are not considered to be qualified health plans under the Affordable Care Act. Please consult with the respective plan detail page for additional plan terms. The discounts are available through participating healthcare providers only. To check that your provider participates, visit our website or call us. Since there is no paperwork or reimbursement, you must pay for the service at the time it’s provided. You will receive the discount off the provider’s usual and customary fees when you pay. We encourage you to check with your participating provider prior to beginning treatment. Special promotions including, but not limited to, additional months free are not available to California residents or on Fully Insured Plans. Note – not all plans and offers available in all markets.
