Cost, not fear, keeps more people from dentist
Cost is a bigger factor than fear when it's time to visit the dentist, a new government report shows. The national survey on oral health shows 4 out of 10 adults in the U.S. say cost is the main reason they don't visit the dentist with an oral health problem like a toothache or loose teeth "in the past six months." Fear was the motivating factor to forgo the dentist for only 1 in 10 adults when they had an oral health problem. Researchers say the results suggest cost and lack of dental coverage is a major factor influencing oral health in the U.S.
