Watch what you eat
Research has shown that there is a significant link between people who have diabetes and tooth loss. It is theorized that high blood sugar disrupts the delivery of nutrients and waste removal which over time will result in tooth loss. Everything in the human body is related so staying a healthy weight can help protect your teeth. The next time you consider ‘oh just one more donut’ think again.
Some of the most common reasons for tooth loss are results of the simplest mistakes. A large percentage of people who experience tooth loss had just never received proper professional maintenance. Without proper insurance this can be a bit harder to maintain, but otherwise there is no good excuse not to let the dentist help you.
Keeping the recommended two appointments a year with a dental provider can greatly reduce the risk of future tooth loss and other dental problems.
Another easy step within everyone’s control is to brush those pearly whites. More than half the patients suffering from tooth loss reported to never or only occasionally brushing their teeth.
Not only is this the easiest solution to the problem, but I’m sure other people will appreciate minty breath verses what you ate for breakfast all week. If brushing isn’t a habit now then it will require some effort up front, but soon it will become like riding a bike, natural.
