Not unless you have literally one foot in the grave and you are on your deathbed! Now if you were in that situation, you wouldn’t be reading this! Why is it then that you can’t be too old for needed dental care? I believe a significant part of the answer lies with the aforementioned effects of having a healthy mouth on extending the length of your life and improving the quality of it.
If your general health is good and you are “mature” in years, what’s the value you place on each additional year of being alive?
Another reason to think about such things is to maintain the health of those you love around you. Remember, you can also pass along your dental infection problems to them as we discussed!
Yet another reason: when you have teeth that work, that look good and feel good, your relationship with the world around you and within yourself is significantly better.
I discussed the importance of your smile as a vital tool of communicating – helping you to relate to others and helps to promote yourself in your work.
Your smile increases the pleasure others have in dealing with you and subsequently enhances all your relationships with others.
Even Another Reason: As You Get Older, Material Items Become Less Important
What becomes more important is how you feel, your overall health and maintaining strong relationships with those you love.
Having a healthy, properly functioning mouth affects every one of these desirable qualities.
It Does Take Time, But Less Than You Imagine!
21st century dentistry still takes time but it is faster than it has ever been before.
Ask yourself this question: If my dental health is more important to my longevity than stopping smoking – just how important is my dental health?
According to one source, those with good dental health lived 6.6 years longer lives compared to those who stopped smoking who increased their life by only 5.2 years
If you look at this as a careful judge, your gavel comes down with a resounding affirmative –it IS worth the time even if you don’t think you have it. And like everything else worth having, it takes some time.
Now with today’s technology, treatment is easier, more convenient and takes less time than ever before. Make the time for yourself –you are worth it.
Need I also point out to you that your spouse, partner, children, or grandchildren are counting on you?
Even if you are very busy making a living to provide for your loved ones, what would happen if you had a serious health problem because you didn’t get or maintain a healthy mouth?
How much income do you lose then? How much income do you lose by not having an attractive smile? (It is a lot more than you think)
