If you have ever lost a tooth, you probably know firsthand that it affects your emotional as well as your physical health. Tooth loss is embarrassing and causes you to feel self-conscious about your appearance. However, you probably know that it goes deeper than that. Many studies show that patients who experience tooth loss actually experience depression.
Because of the social stigma of missing teeth, people may unfairly judge you, think you don’t take care of yourself, or assume that you are unhealthy. You might feel like losing a tooth means you failed at taking care of yourself. While you can prevent most tooth loss with proper oral hygiene habits and professional dental cleanings, some tooth loss occurs due to trauma or heredity and is not your fault.
