“A healthy mouth can add 10 years to your life” coming straight from the mouth of Dr. Charles H. Mayo, one of the founders of the Mayo Clinic. A healthy mouth in his terms means a mouth full of teeth without the presence of infections or cavities.
To say it simply, do not pull out your teeth whenever you have dental problems unless you plan on replacing them!
Your Teeth Can Do What?
Think about the purpose of your teeth. To chew and eat, right? Well, your teeth actually serve many purposes other than eating. Having good dental function is also connected to better breathing, more lung volume, less heart complications, longer life, better brain function and more.
Taking teeth away only leads to the body having to work extra hard when it could be working harder on more important tasks such as fighting off illnesses.
Planning For the Future
Dentistry should never be pushed to the side. Continual dental check-ups are the only way to keep costs down. One should never have to feel as though they need to yank out a tooth when there is a problem and funds are low. Develop a game plan with your dentist as a way to save your teeth and live a long and healthy life!
