Good dental care isn’t simply a requirement to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Periodontal disease, when left unchecked, can result in serious health consequences as a result of untreated infections. More and more people see dental coverage as a necessity today.
When you consider the costs of dental procedures such as crowns, root canals and cavity fillings, it’s no wonder more and more employees are asking for dental coverage. Unified Capital Solutions offers a voluntary benefit program designed with good dental care in mind. It’s really a dual benefit that has value for both employees and employers.
Recent studies have shown that over 30 percent of U.S. citizens didn’t visit a dentist last year and 57 percent of those 35 and older have untreated tooth decay.
Dental Insurance offers an opportunity to get the dental care that’s needed without worrying about the financial burdens. It’s no secret that the longer treatment is avoided, the more expensive, painful and extensive required treatment will become. Maintaining good oral hygiene with regular professional dental care can save money.
It’s amazing how much we depend on our eyes…and it’s equally amazing how many don’t take proper care of their vision. Most individuals can’t remember their last eye exam, and for many it was years ago when they first got glasses! The major problem with this approach to vision care is that there’s seldom any obvious symptoms for degenerative eye diseases, eye conditions and other vision maladies. The only way to maintain good eye health is with regularly scheduled eye examinations for diagnosis and treatment, when necessary.
More than sight is at stake
Did you know that an eye exam could detect symptoms of many treatable diseases and conditions, such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Brain Tumors
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
Vision Insurance provides the financial freedom to maintain healthy eyes, and that means diagnosis for these other diseases. There is no substitute for knowing that you have a particular condition, such as diabetes. Knowing there’s a problem means you can play an active role in managing your condition, maintaining your health and living a healthy life.
