Did you know that your teeth actually tell a fairly accurate, somewhat detailed story about who you are? They can give away your age, your hygiene habits, and so much more. At our dental office in Lyndhurst, we love meeting and treating smiles of all ages for this very reason. Now let’s take a moment to find out what your teeth are trying to tell you!
The way your teeth are shaped and even positioned can reveal the details about your personal dental identity. Here’s how it all breaks down:
Do you grind your teeth? Do you maybe grind your teeth in your sleep and not even know you’re doing it? Well, if so your teeth can tell the truth! Grinding or bruxism is usually a sign of stress, anger, and anxiety. Your teeth may be showings signs of wear such as chips or breakage, this could mean you’re grinding whether or not you even know you’re doing it!
Aside from personality traits, gender, or habits, your smile really does say so much about who you are. That’s why your dentist in Lyndhurst wants to make sure your teeth are always healthy and functioning at peak performance.
