Fort Lee Family Dental Discovers the Tooth
Even if you aren’t saying a lot when in the exam chair with your Fort Lee Family Dental, your teeth can speak louder than words us. A qualified dental health professional can find out a lot about your habits, your personality or traits and even non-dental conditions you may be facing- all without a single peep.
Today we have gathered a few instances of these types of things that your teeth can tell us for you to review and enjoy:
To begin, your Fort Lee Family Dental can tell a lot about your physical traits just by checking out your teeth. Take your age for example. Younger patients typically will have front teeth that are more rectangular and rounded, while older patients will have shorter, more squared-off teeth from the years of use. The shade of the teeth can also tell a dentist your relative age for some of the very same reasons. All teeth are completely unique, just like fingerprints too- so your teeth “print” (besides your DNA) will be attached to each tooth- and is exclusively yours.
As far as your habits are concerned, much can be told by the shape of your teeth too. Feeling a little stressed or anxious? Things like teeth grinding and nail biting is usually linked to these feelings- and can result in damage to the teeth. Tiny chips or cracks, smoothening of the chewing surface and more can be indicative. If you were a thumb sucker when you were younger (or still are)- protruding teeth, speech problems, and uneven bite are all quite common.
Finally, when it comes to conditions you may be facing- sinus infections, diabetes, and vitamin deficiencies can all be detected by the shape your mouth is in. Your Fort Lee dentist can look for swollen gums, sores, teeth pain, weak enamel and more that indicate these problems could exist. Of course, all of this information is based on an individual basis, and many, many more factors could be in play than those listed above.
