Welcome to Our Practice
As a Red Deer family dentist, Dr Sandhu & Dr Saby understands just how important your teeth are, not only for your health, but for your sense of self. The condition of your teeth, how they look, and how they work are all integral components of good oral health. But it’s about more than oral health. We humans are emotionally connected to our teeth.
A study (1) published to the British Dental Journal’s website (see article here) in May of 2000 concluded the emotional impact of tooth loss is significant. In fact, 45% of participants who completed a questionnaire expressed feeling emotionally affected by tooth loss. Some reported reactions such as:
- loss of self confidence
- feeling inhibited performing everyday activities
- finding it difficult to accept the changes in facial shape that often occur with missing teeth
