Many Older People Regret Neglecting Teeth

Many people regret not dedicating time to do something essential right before they go to sleep and when they wake up. That’s why people should brush their teeth and maintain good oral health before it’s too late.

A new study indicates that 60 percent of people older than 55 in the United Kingdom regret not keeping up on their oral health earlier in life. The information comes from the British Dental Health Foundation.

About 20 percent of people in the United Kingdom have full or partial dentures. There are 2.5 million people with no natural teeth.

The problem stems from the fact that many of these people grew up in era when dental health wasn’t stressed. For comparison’s sake, 37 percent of people in 1968 had no natural teeth.

In today’s world, many people aged 16 to 24 are extremely conscious about the way their teeth look. Roughly two-thirds of them are more worried about the way their teeth look now compared to the way they looked five years ago.

Brushing is the best course of action to avoid regretting the way your teeth look. Staying away from sugary or acidic food and drinks, as well as visiting the dentist, are also important to maintain good oral health.
