This blog is pivoted around the psychological aspects stemming out of oral hygiene.
Teeth and Looks
Your teeth have a direct bearing to how you look. A healthy set of teeth ensure that your jaw line remains taut and gives a bearing to your face. When a tooth starts going bad, it leads to the loosening of the tooth, causes movement of the adjacent tooth, may lead to loss of a tooth, and hence create space in the mouth. If this is the case of a single tooth, imagine what would happen if more are not all right? Any damage to even a single tooth will start giving visible alterations to your jaw line and hence your face. As all of us know, we are the most confident when we look good. Any loss of good looks immediately impacts a person’s confidence levels (getting that ideal date becomes so much easier!). It becomes paramount to preserve the good health of teeth to preserve good confidence!
Teeth and Smile
No, this is not an advertisement for any tooth paste! Yet, we have to make this point. Your smile would be nicer and more pleasant (of course you have to smile first), when your teeth are in good condition. Stained teeth, yellow teeth, hollow teeth, and the like have a direct impact on the way you smile. A shiny white smile is surely more attractive, and more importantly echoes of a good oral health. Fix the teeth to smile wider!
Teeth and Children
It is very important for children to have good oral health. Bad teeth, crooked teeth, and other teeth deformations impact the mental health of children as they tend to be affected by the peer group. There have been cases of children going silent and even bordering on depression because they are conscious and not happy about their looks: stemming out of bad oral health. So taking care of the teeth of children goes a long way in keeping their confidence up!
Teeth and Speech
Good oral hygiene helps in clarity of speech. Teeth are very essential for anyone to be able to talk clearly. The loss of even a single tooth would lead to distortion of speech and loss of clarity while talking. This would lead to a person being uncomfortable when they speak and may lead to a minor dip in the confidence levels.
Apart from all these factors which we have mentioned, improper care of teeth also leads to bad breath. As can be seen, good teeth go a long way in maintaining the emotional well being of a person. Looks, smile, and speech are very important for any person to feel good and confident. The psychological effects are catapulted in the case of children.
Given that teeth have such an important emotional and psychological bearing on both children and adults; don’t you think it is essential to take good care of each and every tooth? Does it not sound illogical to say that “I have 32 teeth, so what if I lose one?”
In conclusion, we can confidently say that a good dental health goes a long way in helping a person have a good health overall. It also helps them feel emotionally happy. May you maintain your teeth well and enjoy the benefits!
