The Supreme Court came to a decision on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) today, declaring most of its provisions to be constitutional. The court ruled in favor of the law in a split 5-4 decision.

There are over 100 million Americans who do not visit the dentist as much as they should due to the view that it is prohibitively expensive.

The ACA creates a requirement for insurance companies to provide dental care to children. However, the same protection does not extend to adults, forcing them to either pay for dental care out-of-pocket or buy dental insurance.

The Affordable Care Act will bring a lot of changes to the way health care is provided in this country. Dental health issues, such as cavities, will stay the same. If you need dental attention, contact the dentists of Bridgeview Dental at 512-347-8299.
