Did you know that a large number of UK adults lack the confidence to smile due to missing, crooked and discoloured teeth? Not only do such problems typically result in low self-esteem, they also tend to make people reluctant to smile, and this can be detrimental to wellbeing.
Luckily, there are now a wealth of modern cosmetic dental treatments available including professional teeth whitening, teeth straightening and dental implants, all of which can help to dramatically improve your sense of wellbeing.
Did you know that gum disease doesn’t just affect your mouth? As well as causing problems with your teeth and breath, gum disease is also now linked to many different illnesses. Simply put, healthy gums are key to a healthy body. Your body is an ecosystem, and your teeth play a far greater part in that ecosystem that we realise.
It is often said that you are what you eat, and there is plenty of truth in this adage. A healthy diet is at the heart of your wellbeing, however problems with your teeth – especially missing teeth – can quickly cause you to enjoy a less varied diet as you stick to ‘safe’ foods that don’t cause any discomfort.
Another aspect of wellbeing connected to food is the social element. People who suffer from missing, discoloured or crooked teeth often find themselves avoiding eating with others at gatherings such as meals out, parties, etc, and this can contribute to a feeling of isolation and loneliness, especially in older people.
Your sense of wellbeing is often linked to your sense of achievement. If you are one of the many British adults who have avoided putting themselves forward for a promotion or applying for their dream job because they lack confidence due to issues with their teeth, now is the perfect time to tear down the barriers with the help of some cosmetic dentistry.
There are many things that can get in the way of relationships – but your teeth don’t have to be one of them! Research indicates that people who have an open, friendly smile enjoy better relationships, both personally and professionally. A surprising number of adults with problems such as missing teeth report that they avoid smiling, and this can have a really detrimental impact on relationships. Sound familiar? Speak to us today and find out how easy it is to restore that smile!
