Dental health group calls for more awareness

Dental health group calls for more awareness The link between dental hygiene and overall health is the center of a new campaign by the Wyoming Dental Association.

As part of the Your Teeth, Your Health, Your Life campaign, the dental health group will air commercials on radio and TV, as well as introducing a print advertising push that aims to educate the public about dental care and wellbeing.

According to Dr Ed Clark of the WDA, only around 60 percent of the state's residents are the recipients of regular dental care, the Casper Star-Tribune reports.

He acknowledged that fears about high dental care costs and a lack of dental insurance are among the reasons that people choose not to visit a dentist.

However, Clark emphasized that the cost of preventive dental care often works out to be cheaper than treating more serious problems down the road.

"Many people may be surprised to hear that an unhealthy mouth may worsen or be at the root cause of other serious medical problems, like heart disease, stroke and diabetes," he said, according to the publication.

The theme of the campaign is similar to other initiatives that the American Dental Association has promoted in recent years.
