Recently, some Americans have been forced to put their dental care appointments and procedures on hold as a consequence of the country's severe economic climate.
Many families can no longer afford to go to the dentist because their income levels have been reduced by job loss or because their employers no longer offer dental coverage. In response to America's care problems, an orthodontist in Michigan, a state that's been hit especially hard by the recession, has decided to launch an educational program about maintaining dental health, according to HometownLife.com.
"Special programs are typically the first to go when schools and educators are forced to reduce expenses," said Dr Nawaf Masri to the news source. Masri has his own practice in Livonia. "We began to look into opportunities for us to help the community beyond our normal sponsorship activities, something that focuses more on schools and education."
Poor dental health habits can lead to periodontitis, according to the Mayo Clinic. Gum disease can affect a person's overall wellbeing, as the condition increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
