Reasons to go to the dentist  

Many people are skipping regular trips to the dentist these days. That's not surprising, considering that Reuters reports that 45 million Americans do not have dental insurance, making it difficult for them to afford their care. Luckily for this population, there are many discount dental plans that can help them get them get the oral care they need for a price they can afford.

Recently, Forbes offered the top three reasons to go to the dentist. First, the news source stated that oral health is a good indicator of overall well-being,

"Your mouth offers a snaphot into whether you may be suffering from anemia, a vitamin or even a trace element deficiency. A number of viral and bacterial diseases first manifest in the oral cavity. Your mucous membranes and tongue also reveal whether you may be dehydrated and require additional fluids," according to the news source.

Second, the information provider pointed out that dentists can screen for neck and oral cancer. This is especially important for people who drink or smoke cigarettes.

Finally, studies have suggested that regular dental check ups may be able to prevent heart attacks by keeping harmful plaque from building up, entering the blood stream and causing a cardiovascular problem.
