How important are teeth to our quality of life?
Bright and beautiful teeth are an attractive asset. They provide us with selfconfidence, improve our quality of life and allow us to feel more natural. But, it is not only for appearance that we have healthy teeth. Scientific research has shown that healthy teeth have an important effect on our diet, health and overall sense of well-being. Healthy teeth cannot be taken for granted. Age plays no role and anyone can be affected. Teeth can be lost as a result of many factors: gum disease, tooth decay, or due to an accident. The loss of teeth can be restrictive in many ways. A gap in the teeth is not only an esthetic problem, but it can also adversely affect everyday life, whether it is eating a meal, speaking to a colleague, or laughing with a loved one. Sometimes tooth loss and/or a badly positioned dental prosthesis can cause massive pain in the head and neck.
