Nashua’s Dental Care Rankings

Posted on: September 30th, 2021 | Posted by | Posted in Uncategorized

nashua nh dental ranking
While there is no dental care ranking for Nashua as a city, WalletHub did release some state-level rankings based on a twenty-six metrics. What they found was that New Hampshire is ranked at twenty-sixth place (with one being the highest).

This ranking is surprising if you look at the metrics of dental habits and dental care in isolation. New Hampshire ranked fourteenth in dental habits and dental care, including first in adolescents visiting the dentist and second in least sugar-sweetened beverages drunk. So how did the overall rank drop to twenty-six?

The simple answer is that the lowered rank was a result of the other metrics dragging it down, namely rank of thirty-two in oral health metrics.

Despite doing so much right, the residents of Nashua and other cities in New Hampshire are still reporting below average oral health. Which begs the question, why is oral health so bad in New Hampshire?

While an issue such as this one is usually complex, with multiple factors involved, there’s at least one factor that stands out that could explain the below average oral health in New Hampshire. Most residents do not have access to fluoridated tap water. This includes many of the residents of Hillsborough county and Nashua. While this is only one factor, it can be a very big one as we mentioned in the past.

But just because there’s no fluoride in the tap water doesn’t mean you should go without. Bring up concerns you have regarding fluoride to our dental team and we’ll work with you to find what might work for you.
