Your food habits affect your well-being in a number of ways. However, it has the most effect on your oral health. Eating food that is unhealthy for your teeth can cause diseases such as tooth decay. As per a report by FDI World Dental Federation, 100% adults and about 60-90% of school children suffer from dental caries. While this may seem like a minor and treatable issue, as per WHO’s dental fact sheet, it is also important to note that treatment of such oral conditions is expensive, averaging 5% of total health expenditure and 20% of out-of-pocket health expenditure in most high-income countries. Therefore, taking care of your dietary intake is a necessity.
The pain – both physical and mental – of losing a tooth or two is hard to bear. Besides, missing tooth/teeth not only affect your overall health but also takes a toll on self-esteem. With new inventions and technological advancements in the dental field, there are numerous cosmetic dentistry solutions that can restore your smile to its original glory. Among the many solutions, dental implants have become quite popular in recent times.
