Free Dental Sealants for Low-Income Kids
Children who are eligible for free dental sealnats are those who come from families that are low income and uninsured, and where the children themselves do not have any kind of health insurance.
Dental sealants are some special thin films of plastic, which are usually applied on the teeth surface of the kids, in order to avoid the development of dental caries.
Dental decay in children is recorded as being among the leading child diseases all over the world, so it is extremely important to pay attention to the dental health of children.
Then, there are just too many children who live in uninsured, underinsured and low-income families; therefore, their parents cannot afford to take these kids for the regular annual or biannual dental checkups.
This is why, the awareness is being raised by the humanitarian organizations all over, and volunteers join their forces to offer free dental care to children.
Children from Oak Park will be the lucky ones this time, because the Illinois Department of Public Health will offer them free dental sealants.
The children who are eligible are those who come from families that are low income and uninsured, and where the children themselves do not have any kind of health insurance.
The sealants are usually applied upon the first and second permanent molar of children between 6 and 12 years of age.
