Your Dental Health Matters For Your Mental Health

Did you know that there is a strong connection between dental health and mental health?

According to recent studies, people with poor dental health are more likely to suffer from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Additionally, people that struggle with their mental health are nearly three times more likely to lose their teeth.

There are many reasons for this link. Poor dental health can lead to pain and infection, which can in turn cause stress and tension. In addition, people who are self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth may be less likely to smile or laugh, which can lead to feelings of isolation and sadness.

Finally, the connection between mental wellness and the food that you eat cannot be denied, as we have discussed many times on this blog. Research continues to show that mental health issues are strongly correlated with nutritional deficiencies.
