Preventive care is an important tool when it comes to maintaining your health and reducing potential health risks. In order to maintain overall health, individuals should be utilizing preventive care services, not only for medical care, but dental and vision as well.
Preventive care services are health care services to prevent health problems or illnesses. These services can be in the form of check-ups and screenings. An example of medical preventive care would be an annual wellness check with your primary care provider.

The preventive care services and screenings may differ depending on your family history.
Preventive care does not only apply to medical related services, but preventive care is also important in regard to dental and vision services.
Preventive dental services typically include routine exams, cleanings, and some x-rays. Under most dental insurances, preventive care appointments are of no cost to the insured. Preventive dental services can reduce the risk of potential tooth decay, developing gum disease and other dental issues. Much like medical preventive care, early detection of dental related issues can not only make treatment easier, but it also reduces treatment costs.
Preventive vision care typically includes vision testing as well as screenings for vision related issues such as glaucoma. Preventive vision exams can help identify vision issues as well as reduce the risk of issues such as amblyopia (lazy eye). Identifying visual issues early can help correct the issues before they worsen.
Preventive care can be important when it comes to maintaining your health and reducing potential health risks. Having the right health, dental and vision coverage in place to take advantage of preventive care is important.
