Young people don't prioritize dental health
Updated: 11/9/2012 2:58:32 PM

Young people don Despite the growing number of studies that highlight the importance of dental health and its connection to overall well-being, many people still do not understand that caring for their teeth needs to be a priority in their lives. For example, Private Healthcare U.K. recently reported on a poll which discovered that when it comes to spending money on dental care, many people would rather head to the hairdresser.

The survey found that 46 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 24 believe that their appearance is more important than their dental health. Also, 38 percent said that they prioritized going to the hairdresser or purchasing clothes over spending money on dental care. Many of the individuals surveyed were aware that this was an issue, as 57 percent said that they knew they could do a better job caring for their teeth.

In the U.S., more than 100 million Americans do not have dental insurance, according to a report by Frontline. These individuals need to make sure that they prioritize dental health over luxury items so they do not develop a serious oral disease.
