Regular Dental Checkups Can Prevent, Detect Multiple Diseases

dentist

They say that eyes are the windows to the soul, but the mouth can reveal quite a lot, too. Your semi-annual dental checkup can reveal symptoms of multiple diseases in their earliest stages.

Multiple studies have indicated that a healthy set of teeth and gums can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, and dementia. One recent analysis even suggested that cancer patients who visit a dentist prior to surgery reduce their risk of postoperative pneumonia or dying within 30 days of treatment.

So, the next time you're think of postponing a teeth cleaning, remember that its benefits can go well beyond an attractive smile. And of course, prevention and early detection translates to lower medical costs.

Adding MedBen PreceDent to your health care plan promotes proper dental habits to your employees. Plan members can choose to use our extensive network of dentists and dental specialists or visit non-network providers if they prefer.

Another advantage of offering MedBen PreceDent: Dental care is among the least expensive benefits employers can provide for their health plan members and serves as an attractive incentive for prospective employees.

Whether as a stand-alone service or part of a total health benefits package, MedBen PreceDent offers valuable care that goes beyond the surface. Learn more by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at 888-627-8683 or bfargus@medben.com.
