How Lost Teeth Affect Your Health

How Lost Teeth Affect Your Health

Everyone loses their primary or baby teeth before permanent or adult teeth come in. But some people also lose their permanent teeth as a result of poor dental hygiene, trauma, or diseases later in life.

As you will see in this video, losing your teeth can have a negative impact on your overall health. Research shows that people with dentures eat more processed foods and fewer fruits and vegetables than those who have not lost any teeth. Processed foods may be softer and easier to eat, but they also contribute to a variety of health issues that can affect you mentally and physically.

Regular dental checkups are essential for spotting the symptoms that can lead to tooth loss. If you are dealing with tooth loss, your Naples periodontal specialist can give you a look at the advantages offered by dental implants.
