The Most Abused Part of the Body (January 2, 2019)

Have you looked at your teeth in the mirror lately?

I mean, really looked at them?

Possibly a slightly misaligned tooth here and/or there. Maybe gaps in areas where there once were none.  How about food getting stuck in places that they never got stuck in before.

According to my dentist, all three situations are bound to happen to a person as they–for lack of a better word–mature.  She adds that the gums are probably “the most abused part of body[i].”  Who would have thought that breaking down food could be so brutal right?

So I guess the moral of this story is quite clear:

  • Brush regularly.
  • See your dentist for regular checkups and cleaning[ii].
  • More importantly, if your are grinding (or suspect that you are grinding), get a mouthguard.  You can thank me later.

[ii] Depending on the case, regular cleaning follows a 4- to 6-month interval.
