More than a third of seniors suffering from tooth decay
from The Boca Raton Tribune
Even with the positive changes that Obamacare has brought to US citizens seeking universal healthcare, seniors are among those most at risk of having inadequate dental care. According to NPR, approximately a third of senior citizens in the U.S. experience tooth decay, mainly because they do not have insurance coverage for dental care. Many of them cannot afford treatment, and thus, this highly treatable dental continuously leads to tooth loss and infection. One major obstacle for seniors seeking dental care is the fact that Medicare does not include dental care coverage.
