● Allows bacteria to build up and can:
-> create an abscess.
-> spread as infection to the jaw.
-> get into the bloodstream through bleeding gums.
Note: In a worst case — the risk of infecting a heart valve increases.
-> build up as inflammation.
Note: In a 20 Year study this has been linked to Alzheimer's disease.
-> Two out of three have periodontal disease — leads to the loss of a tooth!
-> Up to 75% have Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease!

100% to fix what could be a Big Cost dental problem!
Instead when you buy an Individual Dental plan you can see a Dentist and receive:
-> full coverage on exams and cleaning.
[Taking time to get an exam twice a year is the key to early detection and stopping oral problems.]
-> 80% coverage for services such as a filling.
-> 50% coverage (some plans) on major services e.g. for a crown.
Bottom line — Over 100 medical situations can be detected by a Dentist during an exam. [like in the picture ] Thus, taking time for regular check ups and cleanings means you can achieve Oral Health.
The Basic — Enhanced — Premium are traditional plans with:
-> a waiting period for certain services
-> an annual benefit from $1,000 or $2,000.
-> monthly costs from about $54 to $75 for one person
Delta Dental's Progressive plan — a special type - with:
— no waiting period for major services. If a crown or root canal is needed you receive:
- > 30% coverage the first 12 months,
- > 40% at the start of the second year,
- > 50% after 24 months.
— $1,500 in benefits during the first 12 months, then $1,750 starting in month 13, and to $2,000 after 24 months on the plan.
[Progressive costs about $56 a month for one person.]
Owning a Delta Dental plan has a big advantage - you can see any Dentist!
However, benefits are better and go further when one of the many network Dentist is used!
Note: It's especially important as we get older to monitor oral health. — Any one of any age can buy a Delta Dental plan!
