WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BRAIN IF YOU DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR TEETH?



Dental care is key to your health. But do you know the consequences if we don't take care of the hygiene of our teeth? Many underestimate the importance of oral health and its impact on the overall psychophysical state of our bodies. At the Breyer Clinic, we repeatedly emphasize to our patients the importance of hygiene and the preservation of all natural teeth for as long as possible. 

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A HEALTHY BODY AND SPIRIT? 

Do you know that the appearance of our teeth is related to our mood? Beautiful and healthy teeth have a strong influence on our mood because they stimulate our confidence and desire to laugh more. In connection with the above, I will give you a few scientific papers that reveal the fascinating fact of the connection between the brain, memory and oral health. 



WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BRAIN IF YOU DO NOT BRING YOUR TEETH? 

1. BAD TEETH = BAD MEMORY? 

What I particularly like about science is that it constantly reveals the secrets of human nature. An interesting scientific paper published in the European Journal of Oral Health (1) reveals to us that tooth loss can weaken your memory. Scientists have found a link between the number of teeth and cognitive ability (memory ability). Thus, it is likely that a lack of teeth at an older age can cause poorer memory. 



Previous studies examining the association between teeth and cognitive function have been performed on animals. The results were shocking. Rats with teeth extracted had greater learning and memory problems. Scientists say that memory is formed through sensory impulses, which are generated by the movement of the jaw. People who have lost their natural teeth have less release of sensory impulses sent to the brain. 



Poor, inadequate nutrition can also be a cause of tooth loss, which ultimately also affects brain capacity. Scientific papers indicate that vitamin and antioxidant deficiency can also cause neurological problems. Anyway, the possible link between mental and oral health is quite fascinating. 



2. STRONG TEETH = STRONG MIND 

Based on many research papers concerning oral health, we can conclude that the state of body and mind is strongly related to our oral health. 



For example, a research paper from West Virginia University (2) points to a link between tooth loss and mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Your dental hygiene can directly affect your overall health. Another, recently published scientific paper in BMC Oral Health (3), an open access journal, reveals that people with periodontal disease are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and many other chronic health-related illnesses 



Poor oral health can cause dementia. So do not forget to brush and clean the interdental space of your teeth daily. 



In the Journal of the American Geriatrics society (4), the authors of a scholarly paper reported that women who did not brush their teeth daily were 65% more likely than dementia, while men were 22% more likely. Dementia can be caused by a bacterium, Porphyromonas gingivalis, which is present in people with poor oral hygiene. An infection from the oral cavity can enter the bloodstream and cause brain related health problems. The bacterium can enter the brain causing destruction of neurons leading to memory loss. To avoid this, it is necessary to take care of your teeth and gums and have regular check-ups with your dentist. 



3. TEETH AND QUALITY OF LIFE 

Remember, the quality of your life is closely related to the quality of your teeth. The way we speak, our self-confidence and self-esteem can be strongly fueled by the look and health of our teeth. Some studies in the UK suggest that people experience tooth loss as a tragic event in their lives! 



If you, like me, are persistent in maintaining your oral health, here are some facts that indicate the benefits that healthy teeth will bring. 



reduced chance of heart disease 

slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, lung disease, rheumatoid arthritis ... 

reduces stress 

it fosters confidence 

correct pronunciation of the word 

improves mental health 

leads to a more cheerful mood, reduces anxiety symptoms 

I hope these facts have convinced you that it is time to start taking care of your teeth. Get started today!
