Proper oral hygiene is essential for having a clean overall bill of health, according to the Centers for Disease Control. To help curb the amount of individuals who need better dental care, some dentists are providing free services.
In Colorado, the Colorado Dental Association (CDA) services individuals who cannot afford treatments on their own, according to The Colorado Springs Gazette.
Most recently, the clinic provided oral care for residents in Colorado Springs. The news provider reports that more than 1,000 volunteers, both dentists and hygienists, were on hand to perform multiple treatments which included oral surgery, root canals and cleanings. Partial dentures were also made for some of the patients.
According to the newspaper, some of the individuals who received services did not make enough money to have dental care coverage while others lost their dental insurance after getting laid off. Molly Pereira, associate executive director of the CDA, told The Gazette that the volunteers needed to provide "more surgery and restorative care because people are putting off preventive care."
Individuals who lack oral coverage may need to find low-cost care so that further health problems can be prevented. Discount dental plans provides affordable coverage for them and their families.
