An organization based in New Mexico is stating that state budget cuts would take away certain benefits to low-income adults such as access to dental insurance.
In an effort to get their point across, Better Choices New Mexico has started an initiative called 20 Days/ 20 Ways to explain to the general public about the proposed budget cuts and what they could potentially lose.
New Mexico Human Services official Pam Hyde has previously stated that adult dental benefits would be one of several places to cut in Medicaid, the government program that offers financial assistance for low-income residents regarding healthcare, the New Mexico Independent reports.
According to the 20 Days initiative, getting rid of dental benefits would increase the chances of more residents suffering from tooth decay.
For those who may not have access to dental insurance, one of the best ways to avoid tooth decay is through regular dental care.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day, flossing daily, eating a balanced diet and visiting your dentist regularly to maintain optimal dental health.
