Toothless = Helpless

We all need our teeth to eat and talk and smile. But what happens when they get damaged, or we lose them? In the past, there was no easy way to repair or replace teeth chipped in accidents, knocked out in battle, or ground down by chewing tough, gritty food. Disease, poor nourishment, and old age made teeth wobble, crack, and crumble and many teeth rotted simply because they were not kept clean. Long ago, life with teeth trouble would be painful, difficult, and probably smelly. You’d be toothless and helpless.

Past Tooth Trouble

HORRIBLE HOLES. Cavities(holes) let bacteria spread deep inside teeth to infect pulp, nerves, and jaws.

YUCKY INFECTIONS. Bacteria living around teeth made people feel sick and made their breath smell disgusting.

HEART TROUBLE. Blood carried bacteria from rotten teeth to the heart, which stopped it from working properly.

GHASTLY GRIN. Black, broken teeth and a gappy smile were not a good look for anyone, even a long time ago.

LOST LOOKS. Without teeth, people’s faces changed shape. They had hollow cheeks and shrunken gums.

MOUTH DISEASE. Broken, dirty teeth hurt the inside of the mouth and caused nasty ulcers and boils.

FOOD FAILURE. With no teeth for chewing, people could eat only soft mushy foods. They went hungry!

SPEECHLESS. It was hard to speak clearly without teeth and just as difficult for listeners to understand!

WHY DOES A TOOTHACHE HURT SO MUCH?When teeth are damaged, sensitive nerves deep inside them are exposed. They carry messages about heat, cold and pain directly to the brain.

TOP TIP:

Do you love music? Then love your teeth, too! If you sing, or play woodwind or brass, damaged teeth could spoil the sound you make.
