Teeth Are Marvels of Nature

Teeth Are Marvels of Nature

They say you never know the importance of what you have until you lose it. The same is true of teeth. Very few people take time to think about the simple, day-to-day things they can do because they have strong and healthy teeth. The reality is that we never appreciate the importance of having these tiny marvels of nature. It is only after we understand how essential the teeth structure is to us that we will be able to take good care of it. Here are some of the main benefits of having strong and healthy teeth.


Have you ever listened to a person speak who had significant tooth loss? Did you see how they struggled to get the pronunciations right? It is easy to see that teeth are a vital part of our everyday communication. Without stable teeth, the conversation that we take for granted will be a considerable burden. If you are in business, communication with your clients will suffer, eventually having a significant impact on your returns. You will also have a terrible social life since you will always struggle to have regular conversations with your friends and family. 


Our physical appearance plays an influential role in how we feel inside and how we relate with other people. Since teeth are an integral part of our external beauty, we have to take good care of them. Teeth are a fundamental part of a person’s identity. They are among the main features that make a person feel ugly or attractive. Many people with defective teeth have a hard time socializing. Fear of judgment can cloud otherwise healthy personal relationships. Consequently, they lose self-esteem and might end up getting depressed. To avoid this, you should keep your teeth structure fit and robust. 

Jaw Strength and Shape Retention

It is important to note that strong and healthy teeth keep your jaw bone secure and stable. The teeth connect to the gum, and the gum connects to the jaw bone. Therefore, the loss of teeth can cause misalignment of the jaw. Also, when you lose your teeth, your cheeks become saggy and sink inwards. This sagging can make you look older than you are. 

So, for you to keep enjoying these benefits, you have to adopt safe and healthy ways that will help you keep your teeth in good shape. Also, make a habit of going for regular dental check-ups.

  • Just wanted to leave a quick review on Claudia! She is an excellent dental hygienist. She is very thorough with her cleanings, she has a sweet personality and takes the time to explain things to you. I 10/10 would recommend Claudia to all of my friends and family.

  • Could not possibly thank Dr. Houck, Gabby, and staff enough for the wonderful care I receive. In addition to excellent dentistry, their compassionate approach and communication really sets them apart. They are always kind, caring, and take time to explain things in detail. Easy to contact the office with any needs, and they are always quick to respond. Highly recommend.

  • If you’re a believer in good vibes and positive energy then this is the place for you. Everyone here is so warm & inviting. They really do feel like family, ya know, the ones you actually like! I’ve been going here for years but when I had my daughter, there was no question about where i would take her for her dental needs. They are so great with her and she is never nervous when we go because they just radiate positivity and make her feel so calm and relaxed. I can’t recommend them enough. Oh, they are also really great with Botox 😉

  • We love IHDC! They do everything possible to ensure our safety, and Alaine is an absolute gem! She treats my daughter with the patience of a saint and we love her for it! The whole team is amazing!

  • My hygienist was Claudia, and I now have a best friend forever. She was so welcoming and kind, put me completely at ease, walked me through all of the procedures, costs, and reasons why, and introduced me to everyone who walked in or by the door. Dr. Smith was equally as helpful and amazing. Every person went out of their way to ensure my comfort and understanding. I NEVER write reviews, and was so impressed that I couldn't wait to get home and write one!

  • Amazing place. Started taking our family there in 2014. Professional, kind, and most importantly excellent at every level of service.
