Did You Know Skipping the Dentist May Cause Wrinkles?

When you skip your dentist’s appointment, you are not only avoiding your oral health but you are also putting your facial appearance at stake. Shocked? But this is true.

Facial aesthetics are very much coordinated with the oral structure and health of our jaw bones and teeth.

According to dermatologists, bone density is lost due to poor oral health causing the jaws and cheeks to be loosened. This causes sagging skin and wrinkles before age. This is known as perioral wrinkles.

Not only this, if your tooth is broken, damaged or removed, this also leads to premature aging. The skin gets less support due to the lost tooth and therefore, it gets loosened.

Perioral tissues receive natural support from our healthy teeth and when we lose a tooth or teeth, the skin drop inwardly.
