Why Are Healthy Teeth So Important?

Posted by Covington Dentistry on Mar 9 2016, 10:19 PM

A healthy tooth has a significant impact on a person's personal and professional life. It is one of the achievements of good dental hygiene. To attain good and healthy teeth, brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist are necessary. 

Healthy teeth pave way for a great smile and fresh smelling breath. People notice teeth when they interact. A person with an unhealthy tooth often finds themselves feeling self-conscious about the way they smile. 

Having healthy teeth help to prevent a wide range of issues as follows: 

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Kidney issues
  • Premature birth
  • Cancer
  • Lung infections

A healthy tooth is a guardian that helps in protecting the general state of well-being. The benefits of healthy teeth are given below: 

Fresh Breath

Healthy teeth and gums keep away the bacteria that cause bad breath in people. Bad breath affects a person negatively. They find it difficult to form healthy relationships at work or in social settings. People often find it suffocating when they speak with a person who has bad breath. 

Prevents Tooth Decay

People do not suffer from tooth decay when their teeth are properly cared for. Proper oral hygiene doesn't permit the bacteria to stay between the teeth. They have only limited exposure to the teeth. This helps in preventing serious issues like gum disease, cavities, or any other infection affecting the teeth. 

Reduces the Risk of Heart Attacks 

The bacteria present in the mouth can make their way to the person's bloodstream. This increases the chance of stroke or heart attacks in an individual. By taking proper care of teeth, serious illness can be prevented. 

Boosts Confidence

Some people make assumptions about others depending on the condition of their teeth. People with healthy teeth are mostly recognized as sociable, attractive, and successful. Unhealthy teeth don't attract others. 

People with healthy-looking teeth are perceived positively. This makes them feel more comfortable and thereby boosts their confidence in the public.

Saves Money

It is easier and better to brush twice a day and perform flossing at least before going to bed than dealing with serious dental issues. Visiting the dentist twice a year is better than visiting them for a serious illness. Dental hygiene should be made a priority for those people who are interested in saving money.
