Your oral health is just as important as any other health related issue but many people feel they don’t have the finances to handle the problem. But ignoring possible problems will not make them go away and can, in many cases, make them worse. According to a poll conducted in 2009 by Harris Interactive and HealthDay, it was found that 50 percent of uninsured Americans skipped necessary dental care visits due to financial burdens. Although a study by The Dental School showed that Medicare beneficiaries who used preventive dental care had more dental visits but fewer visits for expensive non-preventive procedures and lower dental expenses than beneficiaries who saw the dentist only for treatment of oral problems.
According to the American Dental Hygienist Association, nearly 75 percent of American adults suffer from various forms of gum disease – from simple inflammation to severe cases – and don’t even know it.
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, more than 90 percent of all systematic diseases have oral health symptoms.
A poll conducted by Harris Interactive of 1,000 people over 35 revealed that 60 percent of adults knew little, if anything, about gum disease, the symptoms, available treatments and the consequences.
