About Your Longevity

Tooth Loss & Your Longevity:
How many teeth have you lost?

 

Did you know that the number of teeth you have could tell you
how long you’ll live?

Research has shown that the number of teeth we lose can be an indication to our quality of life and how long we might live. And what’s pretty interesting, studies report that if a person has a full set of teeth by the time they are 74 years old, they are more likely to reach 100 years old.

Other aspects that are directly related to tooth loss is the amount of “stress” during a person’s lifetime. Types of stress includes:

  • Chronic disease

  • Genetics

  • Lifestyle choices

  • Nutritional choices

  • Social experiences

  • Emotional health

  • Economic situation

  • and even the person’s Educational experiences

Studies suggest if a person who loses five or more teeth by the age of 65, they are more likely to suffer from other serious health issues such as osteoporosis, diabetes and cardiovascular disease – all which could take a toll on a person’s life expectancy.

Tooth loss can be caused by situations out of our control, such as injuries or genetics. However, tooth loss is mostly caused by reasons within our control, such as smoking or poor oral hygiene, which are causes for gum disease which leads to tooth loss.  

Dr. Sahf & Team recommend cutting back on sugary foods and beverages, brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and schedule regular dental visits to keep as many teeth throughout your life to live a longer healthier life.
