Study: Dental treatment may be too expensive for cancer survivors
Updated: 6/14/2010 7:01:13 PM

Study: Dental treatment may be too expensive for cancer survivors Receiving regular dental treatment is the most important way to avoid oral hygiene problems, but a new study has found that cancer survivors are avoiding services due to costs.

Researchers from the Baptist Medical Center at Wake Forest University examined information collected from randomized nationwide questionnaires to determine what health care services they were forgoing due to high expenses.

The results showed that 11.3 percent of the people surveyed said that dental care was the number one service they did not receive. Also, the information from the questionnaires showed that more Hispanic and African American cancer survivors would avoid oral hygiene treatments.

Kathryn E. Weaver, an assistant professor in the Division of Public Health Sciences at the school, stated these results are important because "cancer survivors have many medical needs that persist for years after their diagnosis and treatment."

People and families who have been affected by cancer treatment expenses can benefit from researching discount dental plans, which can help them be able to afford regular dental treatments.
