We all have been there before. We usually go twice a year. We might see them a little more if we eat too much sugar or are predisposed to dental issues. Yes I am talking about the dentist. Now some people might have very strong and teeth bones. For them going to the dentist might be a tooth spa day. They probably are told nice things about their pearly whites. Naturally that makes the visit a lot less stressful. In this blog post we are going to talk about why going to the dentist might be a little more daunting for some.
I have been going to the dentist since I was a child. I wish I would have listened better. I was that kid that just didn't like or appreciate the importance of brushing my teeth twice a day. If you enjoy something you are more likely to do it. But I just wanted to go to bed and not worry about if stuff and built up on my teeth. Fast forwarding to my adult hood I am completely opposite. I actually did a little research on the dental experience as we know it. Interesting that even ancient times people tried to figure out ways to fix holes in their teeth. even more interesting is did not have healthy teeth and who did. Some of the prominent people we learn about in history had dental issues. I will let you do that research. But why?
I am perfectly aware that humans today are imperfect. That will not always be the case, but is now. Rev 21:4. So when you look at the diet of individuals in comparison with their dental heath, the pattern becomes clear. Holes in human teeth have more to do with an access of certain foods rather than a deficiency. Once you began to understand what doesn't belong in your mouth. you start to win the battle against those cavities.
I am going to go ahead and tell you some of things things that I have observed that are detrimental to dental health. Acid, sugar, and certain grains. That's all. When you observe certain areas of the world with less cavities even though they live in poverty, you see that they eat differently. They do not have access to modern sweets and acidic beverages. They may not be able to afford it. Funny thing once they come out of poverty and are exposed to modern advances, cavities began to show up on that sweet tooth.
So is genetics ? Is it poverty ? Is it bad dental habits ? Is it what you decide to eat ?
It can be a combination of all of the above. So take ownership of what you can for your dental health. GO TO THE DENTIST. BRUSH AND FLOSS. AVOID TOO MANY CHIPS CANDIES AND SODAS. Live your life but be cautious. Even if you do end with a few cavities, with these few steps you can halt the holes from growing in your teeth.
Take care of those pearly whites and they will take care of you!
