The Link Between Our Teeth and Our Psychological Health
Posted on 12/10/2021 by Dr. Call
The health of your teeth is an important factor in your overall well-being as well as your mind. When you visit our dentists, they take their time to educate you on how to protect your teeth for optimal wellness. The state of your teeth is inevitably central in your daily thinking, and any problem with your teeth is therefore enough reason to have stress and depression. You might be wondering how your teeth affect your psychological health, and you might be surprised as to how they are closely related.
Teeth are key for a perfect and full smile
If you want to have a bright smile, your teeth must be in the best condition. Crooked or stained teeth are a cause of mental torture for many because they are unable to smile in public. The same goes for gaps left by missing or lost teeth. You will be having anxiety, hindering you from talking to people in public, or smiling at social events. These could weigh heavily on your mind, and as a result, you can have psychological problems. It is therefore important to get treatment for your teeth troubles to enjoy peace of mind.
Pain from infected teeth can impact you psychologically
You can experience excruciating pain due to a dead tooth or infected tooth. There will be a disruption of your sleeping patterns because of the unbearable pain. The pain and disrupted sleep can deteriorate your psychological wellbeing. You will undergo stress while eating. Toothache can negatively affect your daily life in many ways.
