Many older Americans do not have dental care coverage due to the loss of benefits after they retire, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, government agencies continue to increase funding so that these individuals can seek low-cost oral treatment.
For example, as part of a nationwide effort by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Lorain County Health and Dentistry in Ohio will receive more than $6 million, Cleveland.com reports. The money is so that the thousands of people who are in need of dental care in that area can be serviced.
There were also two other Ohio dental centers which were recently awarded grants that totaled more than $8 million. With this funding, all three centers will be able to provide care to more than 22,500 new patients each year, the news provider reports.
Many of these individuals, including children, adults and seniors, are uninsured or do not make enough money to pay out of pocket, according to the news provider. However, the clinics offer discounts so that more people can receive services.
Individuals may lack insurance due to retirement or job loss and could seek low-cost treatment in order to receive proper dental care. One way people and their families can find affordable coverage is through discount dental plans.
