Individuals without dental insurance should look into discount dental plans to help them get the care they need at an affordable price. This is particularly important for people with children, since kids need to regularly visit the dentist to make sure that their teeth, mouths and jaws are developing properly, and that they don't have any untreated tooth decay. The Herald Online, a Florida news source, recently reported on the fact that 17 million U.S. children do not have access to affordable dental care, which puts them at risk for a number of health problems.
According to the news source, children who have untreated dental health problems often miss days of schools or have trouble concentrating due to the pain. Furthermore, these kids may experience problems with speech that can lead to self-esteem issues.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that tooth decay is the most prolific chronic infectious disease that affects children in the U.S., and it is also entirely preventable. Discount dental plans can provide children and adults with the care they need to avoid serious dental problems.
