Our health and wellness is very important as it determines if we are to enjoy anything else that we do. Without good healthy bodies we cannot be able to enjoy anything else. A billionaire suffering from a painful condition that has him bedridden without the ability to do anything on his own and constantly under pain relieving drugs can easily give away his billions to get good health. The most popular musician with chart topping albums can easily give away his or her fame to recover from life threatening painful condition.
Good health basically means a situation where an individual has all his body systems working normally with no pains, injuries, broken bones, or discomforts. The human body is built to automatically ensure this optimum condition although it is in a constant duel with disease causing agents that will cause sickness if they are able to attack the body systems.
Health is not only disrupted by pathogens – disease causing agents. Health can also be disrupted by other external factors such as the body being injured through accidents, bones breaking and other consequences of negative physical action. Another area where the health of an individual can be affected is where the psychology of the person is affected.
Poor health through psychological reasons will result in conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, and burnout.
The mouth is an important area of the mouth with vital functions. The mouth also contributes a great deal to the wellness or lack of wellness for the body. The teeth are especially very crucial and the health of the teeth is very important. Unhealthy teeth can cause adverse negative consequences that can be very taxing. For example unhealthy teeth can be very painful and it is usually a very bad experience that makes one very miserable.
Unhealthy teeth can lead to the need of a tooth being taken out completely and one being left without a tooth. Although a tooth can be replaced by an artificial tooth, the replacement can never be as good as the original.
Teeth can also be easily and permanently damaged by being hit by a hard object. The brittle teeth ca break, crack, or they can be uprooted entirely by the force. To prevent this occurrence one can wear protective mouth guards especially when one is going to engage in an activity in which there is a likelihood of being hard hit in the mouth. Some of such activities include sporting activities like hockey, lacrosse, polo, wrestling, rugby, football, gymnastics, and acrobatics.
Mouth guards can also be used to protect the teeth from self-inflicted damage.
There are people who have conditions where they frequently grind their upper and lower sets of teeth. Some also forcefully clench their jaws exerting a lot of pressure on their teeth. These are actions that are easily likely to cause teeth damage in the form of cracks, breakages, and wearing out the teeth enamel through attrition. Mouth guards can be worn to prevent the two sets of teeth coming together and causing harm.
