Our lives are multifaceted and just about every aspect has some impact on our personal wellness. When you really think about it, each area of life is somehow connected to another. You may wonder how a dentist can add to your personal wellness. There are several ways in which your dentist can help you experience better health.
The Gateway to Overall health
Many people are unaware of the research that has been done linking general wellbeing to oral health. There is some indication that, where the health of the gums is concerned, poor oral hygiene may be the precursor to serious health problems. It is obvious that a beautiful smile impacts a person’s sense of well-being and self-esteem. Everyone suffers from bad breath from time to time, but chronic halitosis can be the indicator of serious gastric problems if it is not caused by oral infection. A thorough dental exam by your dentist can identify any oral problems that may be impacting your general health.
Who doesn’t want to look good? Your smile says a lot about you whether you are aware of it. People are drawn to others with a friendly smile. One that is marred in some way, whether by dull discolored teeth, rotting teeth, or missing teeth, etc. is not appealing to most people and it can be difficult to overcome. Knowing that your smile is not at its best can cause you to smile less often or hide it.
Missing teeth can cause you to look older than your actual age. Dull, stained teeth can age you also. Your dentist has procedures to remedy all these situations. Once your smile is restored, your teeth looking white and beautiful, you will feel better about yourself and your new outlook may even help you to see your world in a new light.
When your mouth is healthy, you can’t help but feel good, especially if it’s been in poor shape. Toothaches, gum disease, misaligned teeth, mouth sores can all impact your health. In some cases, the impact may be minimal, but in situations where the infection is present, there is also the potential danger of getting seriously ill. An abscessed tooth can be fatal under certain circumstances. But when your dentist addresses those issues and oral health is restored, your body reaps the benefits.
Your Dentist and Personal Wellness
