Affordable Care Act and Dental Health


29625285-stethoscope-with-symbol-of-medicine-caduceus-3dThe Affordable Care Act has been in full effect for months now and still people are experiencing the affects of it.  One area that it seems to affect less than other areas of health care is dentistry.

More children are now covered for dental care as of January 1, 2014.  Pediatric oral health services are included in the new policies.  Around 800,000 adults were expected to gain extensive coverage through health insurance. Seniors likely saw the smallest increase in benefits.

Preventative dentistry is still the best way to minimize dental and oral issues. This includes brushing and flossing daily, eating healthy and decreasing sugar intake and also using fluoride.
