What People Will Do To Get Their Missing Teeth Back
The slogan, “Take a bite out of crime,” was all too familiar with the police force of a small Pennsylvania town, when a woman resorted to robbing a bank for money that she claimed she would later use to buy herself dentures.
The woman reportedly walked into the First National Bank in Waynesburg, PA where she demanded that a teller give her money, threatening that she had a gun. Although the woman never flashed the alleged gun, she was arraigned on two counts of robbery. Her method of obtaining cash may seem bizarre, but her purpose is far from that.
There is not doubt that missing teeth causes people anguish, resulting in an embarrassing smile, decreased chewing abilities, and even physical pain. There are many options, from dental implants, bridges, to dentures, which can rebuild your bite and give you your life back. Missing teeth can lead to many health-related problems, not just issues with your mouth. Of course, missing teeth affects one’s diet, which inevitably affects your overall health as well. Missing teeth also causes premature aging, jaw joint disorder (TMJ), headaches, migraines, and even pain the neck and back.
