Have you ever given much thought to why your teeth are designed as they are? Vegetarians will argue that the teeth are made for cutting and crunching vegetables. Meat eaters insist the teeth are designed to rip and chew meat and vegetables.
Ancient man relied on their teeth. Their diet consisted of meat, root vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The teeth were more than important to them because having defective or missing teeth could mean starvation or malnutrition.
It has been the job of dentistry to help us keep our teeth, and keep them in good condition. Procedures have progressed to the point where now we can replace missing or damaged teeth with dental implants that function the same as natural teeth.
Whatever your dietary choices, there’s no debating the need for strong, healthy teeth. Enjoying food is one of the great joys of life, but you need healthy teeth to do so.
