You can’t control some risk factors like age and family history. But you can prevent others, such as smoking, which puts you at greater risk for many diseases, including your oral and dental health. If you smoke, a program to help you quit smoking can lower your risk for those risk factors.  

Tips on Reducing Your Dental Risk Factors

1. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste

2. Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles

3. Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks

4. Use mouthwash to kill harmful bacteria

5. Chew sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva production

6. Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings

7. Quit smoking or using tobacco products

8. Wear a mouthguard while playing sports or grinding your teeth at night

9. Consider getting dental sealants to protect your teeth from decay

10. Maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to support overall oral health.

How dental insurance helps to reduce your dental risk factors: Dental insurance can help reduce your dental risk factors in several ways.

  • Make regular dental checkups and cleanings more affordable, making you more likely to visit the dentist regularly. Dental checkups can help catch dental problems early before they become more severe and costly.
  • Dental insurance plans cover preventive services like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which can help protect your teeth from decay. Preventative care can help reduce your risk of developing cavities and other dental problems.
  • Some dental insurance plans cover additional treatments, such as periodontal therapy and orthodontic treatment. These services can help address existing dental problems and prevent them from worsening.

Dental insurance can help you maintain good oral health by making dental care more accessible and affordable. It can also provide peace of mind knowing that you have coverage in case of a dental emergency or unexpected dental problem.
