How Dental Insurance Supports Healthy Aging

Thanks to modern medical advances, aging is not what it used to be. We can now maintain much of our strength, health and function as we get older. The right dental insurance can help you keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come.

Keeping Your Teeth Strong and Healthy

Our bodies are impressive. Our teeth are so durable because the enamel covering them is stronger than bone. With good care our teeth are even capable of outlasting us. But that doesn’t mean that teeth are indestructible. Decades of wear and tear take their toll. As we age, enamel can become thinner. Weakened enamel makes us vulnerable to chips, cracks, breakage and possibly even loss of the tooth.

Strong though they may be, unfortunately our teeth aren’t able to repair themselves. When enamel erodes or becomes damaged, the tooth is more susceptible to cavities or tooth decay. Chipped or cracked teeth can expose the delicate pulp tissue to inflammation or infection. This cumulative decades of wear and tear on our teeth is one reason why regular checkups are so important. Dental exams catch small problems early and can help prevent the tooth loss that is so commonly associated with aging.

Healthy Aging From Head to Toe

Oral health plays a crucial role in healthy aging. Our bodies are complex and interconnected. Your overall health has an impact on your oral health and the health of your mouth has an impact on your food choices. Eating difficulties due to missing teeth or other problems can lead to poor nutrition and ill health. The health of our mouth also affects our appearance, self-esteem, emotional well-being and quality of life.

Fortunately, with proper dental care and the right dental insurance, many problems can be prevented or treated without breaking the bank.

Keeping Dental Care Affordable

Like all health care needs, the need for dental care also increases with age. Old fillings may need replacing, some prescription medications may cause dry mouth which can affect your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, Medicare doesn't cover most dental care, dental procedures, or dental devices. Nor is dental care included in any of the Medigap or Medicare supplement plans.
