HCCMIS Showcases the Sour Side of Sweet Tooth for American Children

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - HCC Medical Insurance Services, LLC (HCCMIS), a provider of worldwide medical insurance, released an infographic detailing sugar and health statistics for American children. Whether it is cakes, cookies or candy, a super sweet tooth may lead to a quick trip to the dentist, the need for worldwide medical insurance with added dental coverage and a good brushing at the end of the day!

While some statistics will not be surprising, others detailed in this infographic will not be too sweet when it comes to dental bills. Statistics show ninety-six percent of American children ages six to eleven will consume candy each year, with little difference in consumption across age groups. These treats might leave a sweet taste in your mouth, but sugar sometimes produces elements that can produce dental plaque.

"We typically deal with consumers looking to buy expatriate health insurance, but optional dental insurance coverage is another component that people really need to consider," said Mark Carney, CEO of HCCMIS. "The last thing you want is to be overseas and get a tooth ache when you don't have dental coverage, because you won't want to wait until your next time off to have it checked out."

HCCMIS developed this infographic as the final installment of the Sweet Tooth infographic series for the company's blog. Previous Sweet Tooth infographics included information on sugar and health facts, candy trivia and sugar content in sweet snacks.
