The number of teeth we’ve lost may be a good indicator of predicting the length of life.
According to a study, people who have had all teeth up to 74 years of age have a greater chance of living for 100 years.
Those who have lost five or more teeth for up to 65 years are likely to suffer from serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis, which can affect significantly the length of life.
All these diseases are related to the quality of life of the individual, their socio-economic status, but also with stress.
Experts say it is necessary to brush your teeth twice a day, morning and evening with fluoride toothpaste, reduce sugar and sweet drinks, and visit a dentist regularly.
