04 Aug The Importance Of Back Teeth
Do we eat to live or do we live to eat? That is an interesting question. Perhaps the answer is that both are true. Let’s say that we need to eat to live and most of us love to eat!
A sumptuous meal of one’s favourite dish or the enjoyment of a meal in a favourite restaurant are amongst the joys of life. Close your eyes and roll your tongue over your teeth and imagine savouring that delicious flavour.
Back teeth are vital for the function of eating through proper chewing. They are the grinders that break the food down as it mixes with the saliva as part of the initial digestive process. Slow and adequate chewing is essential for good digestion.
The back teeth maintain the proportion of the face and prevent wrinkles and sagging. Why look older than you have to?
Do you have all your back teeth and are they sound and healthy? Is your chewing now compromised because of missing teeth; a broken down tooth; a cracked tooth; or perhaps extensive decay?
Most of us have had fillings on our back teeth and are they still in good order? What filling material has been used and how many times has the same tooth been worked on. Leaking fillings, overhanging margins, the inappropriate material and poor contacts are some of the problems that may exist in your mouth and that you are totally unaware of. The tongue does not pick up these problems. Only a dentist will.
The face is the window to the soul. A bright beautiful smile lights up one’s face. A smile makes a connection to the world and together with beautiful teeth enhances one’s self-esteem and confidence.
Everybody is focused on beautiful front teeth but what about the back teeth that you don’t see unless you open your mouth very wide.
Why be compromised with missing back teeth or defective fillings. Enjoy the benefits of restoring your teeth to proper shape and form – not just filling them. Be comfortable, pain-free and hassle free.
Back teeth are really important for your long-term health and well-being.
Have them restored properly and give them a chance to last a lifetime. With proper care they really should.
