How a Healthy Mouth and Face Do More Than Just Make You Look Good
It is said that you can tell the health of a person by looking at their skin and teeth. When a person buys a horse, they pull the gum away from the teeth of the horse and inspect the teeth.
I’m in no way saying that we are that similar to horses, but like all mammals our oral health is of great importance to health of our entire body. If one has beautiful teeth and face, much of the imperfections of the rest of the body can be overlooked in being appealing.
More than being attractive, our healthy, glowing, face and teeth is a mere reflection of our general health. So if we can focus on the activities that enhance our look (naturally), then it makes sense that we would also be healthier.
Taking care of your oral health also has a definite positive outcome on your income. Consider that the number one reason for missed school days is due to oral health issues. While I don’t have the statistics to show, it only follows that it is a major cause for missed work in adults.
The types of problems are things like cavities, abscesses, tooth failures and other issues that could have been prevented by timely visits to a dentist as well as fluoride.
While this is a very huge issue it is also a window to a lot of others problems, such as if you’re applying for a job and you have poor quality teeth this can affect your confidence. It can also be a window to other diseases. Done right preventively can lead to a dramatic decrease in healthcare costs.
It is believed by many that spending $1.00 to fluorinate drinking water will save $38 per person in healthcare costs. Other preventative measures, like sealants, is considered viable and even just making sure children have regular check-ups and cleaning will lead to less dental and other medical expenses.
Either way, it definitely takes a whole lot more energy and resources to take care of the things you found wrong (cavities, abscess, tooth extractions), than to prevent them through regular cleanings.
Losing your teeth will affect nutrition and eventually overall health. While root canals and teeth fillings come with possible side effects, as well.
These side effects are usually unnoticeable to minor for most people, but it still is much healthier to keep your teeth free from decay.
Healthy gums are often overlooked until they become a problem. Proper cleaning through mostly flossing and rinsing will save you both pain and money.
In this site we will explore the many benefits of oral practices and even some that are more or less understood.
