Smile play a very major role in our life. A beautiful smile that boosts our confidence and enrich the personality but leaves a long lasting impression on others too. And that is also a major reason for all of us to keep our teeth and gum healthy and visit to our dentist regularly to ensure its longevity.
But did you ever realise the correlation between your teeth and wrinkles on your face.
YES!! continuous negligence for routine check dental care can lead to the increased aging process and more wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
1. WORN DOWN TEETH
When teeth become worn down so much that there is no longer enough of the crown left to function properly or support oral structure, it often results in the loss of teeth and, consequently, the loss of facial support as well. Worn teeth gradually give way to wrinkles because the inevitable tooth loss causes the cheeks to sunken in, and form wrinkle lines at the corners of the mouth. Most people may not know it, but the teeth function more than just to bite, or chew, or flash brilliantly with every smile. They also serve as supporting structures for the lips and the cheeks by making them firm and fuller.
2. NIGHT GRINDING
Knowingly and unknowingly, continuous grinding of teeth can also shorten the length of teeth and eventually results into the less support to facial muscles.
Grinding your teeth is no-no if you want to keep your youthful looks.If the jaw muscles are overworked, it can lead to sagging in the soft line of the jaw.Night clenchers should get a mouth guard to prevent them grinding in their sleep.
3. Missing Teeth
Loss of teeth leads to loss of bone density in the jaw and cheek. The bone provides structure and frame -work for facial skin. Loss of support lead to more wrinkle and sagged jaw lines.
4. Gum Disease
Severe gum disease also harbours millions of bacteria. The outcome of negligence leads to loss of attachment to teeth and teeth get wobbly with time.
No Gum( gingiva) ---> NO Support-----> No Teeth-----> No Bone density ------> WRINKLES
VISITING A DENTIST CAN BE A NIGHTMARE FOR MANY OF US, BUT LETS FACE IT THERE IS MORE THAN JUST YOUR DENTAL HEALTH.
AVOIDING TO DENTIST CAN PROVE COSTLY FOR YOUR SKIN LONG RUN!!!!
