Depression from Poor Dental Health is Fixable

Posted on 3/25/2020 by Woodland Hills OMS
Even with all of the physical problems which arise from poor dental hygiene, perhaps the more devastating toll it takes may be emotional and psychological.

Lack of Confidence and Self-Assuredness The first thing that we often hear from patients who are having serious dental health problems is usually about the impact that it has on their personal life, even more so than the physical issues such as eating or drinking. Things that many of us take for granted, like having dinner with friends or going out to a live event can become a source of anxiety and embarrassment for someone who is uncomfortable with the appearance of their smile or the condition of their teeth. A Continuing Downward Spiral From there it only continues to get worse if the dental conditions aren't addressed and treated. Generally speaking, as the issues progress to the point of chronic decay or tooth loss, many times the patient will completely disconnect from their friends, eliminating most or all of their social life.
