John Ross Jesensky Discusses the Need to Encourage Greater Accessibility to Dental Care

doctor-563429_960_720There are many benefits to the fact that dental insurance and medical insurance tend to be separated from one another, but that does not mean the system is not without its drawbacks. In some circumstances, people in difficult financial situations are more likely to make the decision to forgo dental insurance in favor of medical insurance in the hope that they will simply be able to avoid any major issue requiring a dental professional’s attention. John Ross Jesensky has noted that this is a mistake on a variety of levels, especially since forgoing regular visits to the dentist makes it much more likely that a more serious — and much more costly — issue will arise.

Without getting into a detailed cost-benefit analysis of dental insurance, Jesensky believes that those without insurance should not compound the issue by avoiding the dentist altogether. Cleanings and checkups tend to be very affordable, and those who still feel they cannot afford a dental visit can opt for the free dental services that are often offered by dentists during various times throughout the year. From a financial perspective, it ought to be quite evident that any initial cost associated with dental care or dental insurance is well worth the price and is an investment entirely worth making regardless of an individual’s fiancnial circumstances.

Dental Care a Critical Component in Preventive Medical Care

In the medical field, there is no better type of care than preventive medical care. Doctors in every aspect of medicine work very hard to treat whatever issues their patients may be dealing with, but the fact remains that the goal of every doctor should be to work diligently to help their patients prevent any issues that may lead to further health complications.

As Joe Olujic has said over and over again, it is much better to prevent a disease than to cure a disease. Of course, Olujic does not mean that there should be less emphasis on treating an existing condition, just that both doctors and patients should do all that they can to prevent a disease before it ever needs to be cured.

One of the more overlooked aspects of preventive medical care relates to dentistry. Proper dental care is an absolutely vital component of preventive care, yet there are many who do not fully understand the value of regular dental care.

Patients should perceive their dentist as the first line of defense against a number of diseases that can result in a number of very serious health complications. This means that regular checkups play a significant role in preventive medical care and can reduce the likelihood of a patient having to endure the ill-effects of the diseases these checkups can help prevent. Most dentists recommend checkups and cleanings every six months, and this schedule should be closely followed in the interest of preventive medical care.

At Any Age, Dental Health Should Not Be Overlooked

While it should come as no surprise that dental health is incredibly important, many do not realize that proper dental care and regular visits to the dentist can have a significantly positive impact on overall health and wellness. Dentistry is not just about ensuring oral health and well-being or maintaining the aesthetic appearance of an individual’s smile, it is about ensuring that through proper dental hygiene people are able to enjoy an excellent quality of life for many years to come.

Dental care is emphasized as being vital for children and young adults whose teeth are still in the developmental stages, but, according to Adam Kutner, D.D.S., lifelong dental care can help prevent a number of serious diseases and illnesses that can afflict people of any age. In fact, many preventable oral diseases have been linked to the development of other, more serious issues. Diabetes, cardiac disease, stroke and certain types of cancer have been linked time and again to oral diseases that could have been easily prevented or treated through regular dental care.

When it comes to matters of health and wellness, it is important to include regular dental care as a vital component that delivers many long-term benefits.
