HopeHealth Dental Services in Kingstree
Oral health is a big part of overall physical health and can often be a good indicator of what is happening inside a person’s body.
Regular preventative dental care, such as daily brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings, are vital to health. Research shows a connection between oral health and heart health, diabetes, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Professional dental care and oral health education can help prevent dental disease, and can improve overall health. Early diagnosis of oral problems and treatment helps stop gum disease, cavities, enamel wear, and more. Gum disease is the primary cause of adult tooth loss in the U.S.
Dental care services include preventive procedures such as cleanings, fluoride and sealant applications, x-rays, fillings, and extractions. To promote preventive care, many dental insurance plans pay all or most of the cost for routine dental checkups, including cleanings, examinations, and xrays.
Those without dental insurance may be eligible for care on a sliding fee schedule at community health centers such as HopeHealth in Kingstree. For more information, call the HopeHealth dental care team at (843) 355-5628.
