It’s no coincidence that people who have missing teeth also are suffering from potentially deadly health issues. In fact, your missing teeth may be causing those dangerous health issues to develop and progress. Over a 12-year study of over 7,500 subjects, researchers finally found a strong correlation between the number of teeth each participant had and their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. The study pointed to the fact that subjects with less than 10 teeth were at least 7 times higher at risk of dying from heart disease compared to subjects that were the same exact sex and age with more teeth.
Basically, it’s important to fill those holes in your smile! If you’ve experienced tooth loss, Breckinridge Dental & Orthodontics has a great tooth replacement solution for you: dental implants in Richardson.
