Vision and Dental insurance can be important.
Many consider these types of coverages supplemental, as they may not be included in many health plans.
Keeping your eyes and teeth healthy are just as important as taking care of other parts of your body.
For those 65 and older, this is a much more significant concern.
The leading eye diseases mostly associated with the senior population are:
*Unlike most of these, cataracts can also be common as early as age 50.
Those who have coverage are far more likely to get their eyes checked regularly.
As for our teeth, as we age the amount tooth lost grows.
According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (www.nidcr.nih.gov),
by the time a person is 73, they are 24% likely to be missing the majority of their permanent teeth.
Those who have coverage are far more likely to go to the dentist regularly.
The best way to off-set these problems is to:
- keep good daily oral hygiene
- have regular vision and dental exams with a knowledgeable and caring practitioner
