It is possible for us to live without any teeth but it is not going to be a good life. We are born without teeth but they begin growing at an early age; about the same time that our bodies learn how to live on solid foods. Fairly soon, these, so-called “baby” teeth begin to drop out and be replaced with larger, stronger adult teeth. These are very much our last chance; if we lose them, nothing will grow back to replace them. We must hang on to them at all cost.
Wait for the Worst to Happen or Take Preventative Measures?
In the past, having your teeth looked after was a somewhat hit and miss affair that usually resulted in much pain. Therefore, going to someone for them to “do something” about your teeth was very much a matter of last resort.
Fortunately, over the years, “teeth fixing” has grown into the real science that we now call dentistry. Dental practitioners are now fully trained and qualified and equipped with a wide array of equipment to avoid giving pain to their customers (who are now referred to as “patients”).
Fear of pain is no longer a valid reason for not having a dentist look at (and fix) your teeth; this means that we should all visit a dentist regularly and have minor problems fixed before they become major.
Go Beyond Mere Patch-Up Jobs
Dentistry has grown a whole new set off names for its many varied activities and this is particularly true in the field of cosmetic dentistry as practiced by Doctors of Dental Surgery (DDS) such as Teeth Whitening Charleston, WV. Now that people are no longer afraid of their dentist, they can give thought to the ways in which our teeth affect both our appearance and our personality (or even our speech).
Whenever we open our mouths, other people can see our teeth; especially when we smile. A smile is taken as a mark of a pleasant personality but, if the smile reveals a mouth full of crooked and/or stained teeth, the recipient may be easily form a bad impression of the smiler. This is where cosmetic dentistry from such as Teeth Whitening Charleston WV comes to the rescue. Even the most yellow of teeth can be transformed into pearly white by simple, painless and inexpensive cosmetic dentistry.
