Dental Anti Aging
Made in Germany
A glowing young and fresh look has already been the popular idea of beauty in ancient cultures. In contrast to ancient times however, people have an increasingly longer life expectancy. This also means the longer we live the longer we stay young.
In terms of figures life expectancy increases every four years for about one year. In 1900 a human being faced the end of life at the age of 50. According to statistics today a person will live a few more decades and hence feels younger at this point. We do not identify ourselves with our biological age but with our personal feelings and self-image. Today a 55 year old person rather feels like being 40 and in a way this is also true.
The feeling of youthfulness and the society’s idea of being ideal push constantly forward our demand to look younger.
Due to many reasons our smile can unduly age, too. The bite position will lower over the course of a lifetime. Due to wear teeth will appear shorter and broader. As years go by teeth may discolor and the gums will pull back. When we laugh our anterior teeth become more and more invisible and tiny wrinkles form around the mouth while the upper lip collapses. This is natural abrasion of teeth and its consequences that affects all of us to a certain extent.
Another point is dental wear inappropriate to somebody’s age, affecting in particular younger people. External factors like acids (e.g. in energy drinks or gastric acid in bulimia patients) or stress-related crunching/pressing can lead to an exaggerated tooth wear and may result in problems of the temporomandibular joints.
Considerably aged teeth make us look much older and unhealthy whereby the actual, biological age doesn’t matter.
“Anti-aging dentistry” allow us to treat these issues minimally invasive, preserving healthy dental tissues and long lasting.
