Letting go of your goals for your smile is tragic. You may be working or going through your life and thinking you don’t have enough money to improve your smile. Or you might think you do not have time to get the gap in your front teeth that has always been there fixed. However, when you have teeth that are broken, chipped, cracked or damaged from incidences, unhealthy habits or trauma you leave not only your smile at risk but also, your overall health.
There is a connection to what happens in your mouth that can drastically impact the health of your heart, your body and your ability to perform to the best of your ability. While years ago health care workers may not have 100% understood how much the health of your mouth can impact your overall health, it is clear now that periodontal disease is a bacteria that when not taken care of can cause a host of problems. While this may seem extreme, there are other minor problems you may face as well. If you are not able to chew your food because your teeth are sensitive, it may cause you to lose out on essential nutrients that you need to fuel your body.
