In an effort to assist Missouri seniors who are in need of dentures, but cannot afford them, Kansas City's Medicine Cabinet provides dentures and other dental care treatments to these patients for free. A program that was established under the Baptist-Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation, the Kansas City Medicine Cabinet assists older patients who have little or dental insurance.
In addition to improving their dental hygiene and overall health, dentures can also enhance these individuals' personal appearance.
If these patients are unable to afford regular dental care, oral hygiene complications, including tooth decay and gum disease, can lead to tooth loss and the need for dentures. In 2007, only 58 percent of adults aged 65 years and older visited a dentist, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports.
Individuals and families with little or no dental insurance can benefit from researching discount dental plans. These programs can help patients visit dentists on a regular basis and receive services that can prevent further oral and health complications.
