Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. A routine dental examination can detect many diseases including heart disease, diabetes, anemia, stomach ulcers, osteoporosis and kidney disease. Regular check ups and cleanings can save you the pain and expense of future problems. Using your dental insurance for regular dental check- ups can improve your health. Your dental insurance can also help save you money if more serious dental treatments are needed.
With your PPO plan, you can visit any dentist; but you pay less out-of-pocket when you choose a PPO dentist.
