Why Dental Coverage Is Important
Taking care of your teeth helps keep the rest of your body healthy. Many diseases start orally, so you may be able to catch an illness early simply by visiting the dentist.
Healthy teeth also help with confidence. Losing teeth, crooked teeth, and dirty teeth can take a toll on someone’s self-esteem. Confidence in your smile affects many areas of your life, like your work and personal life. It is worth taking the time to visit the dentist, and now that Medicaid can be applied to dental treatments in Colorado, you can at no cost (up to $1,000).
Below is a summary of your dental Medicaid benefits.
