Americans are having trouble gaining access to affordable dental care, and the problem doesn't appear to be getting better. According to a recent article published by The Huffington Post, one in three Americans cannot afford to go to the dentist. Furthermore, this is not a problem that is limited to adults, nearly 5 million American children, or one in 16, did not get regular dental checkups in 2008 because their families could not afford it.
No one should have to go without dental care. There are many options for people who do not have dental insurance that will help them gain access to dentists. According to Money Crashers, people who do not have dental insurance can enroll in a discount dental plan, which can offer discounts of between 15 and 60 percent on dental treatment.
The Huffington Post added that ignoring dental health can be be dangerous. In 2011, a 24-year-old man died of a tooth infection because he could not afford antibiotics or to get the tooth pulled. This is why individuals without dental insurance should consider enrolling in a discount dental plan.
