Don’t Let Dental Pain Stop You Functioning – Will Murphy Dentistry Tells You How

Have your teeth ever hurt so much that it has caused you to miss school or work and prevented you from being your most productive? Hopefully it has not, however, for many British people it is an issue which will cause considerable displeasure at some point or another in their lives. The truth is that on a wider scale, the inconvenience of dental pain results in many thousands of lost hours of productivity all across the UK every year. It goes without saying that with the fast pace and stress of modern work life, this is something that nobody wants to put up with.

Dental pain among adults is unfortunately far too common in the UK, where 31% of all adults are currently experiencing tooth decay, and a whopping 74% have had to have teeth extracted! Not only does this mean definite time away from the office, it means that the confidence that people have in their smile is diminished compared to those who have great dental health. In fact, only 9% of men and 11% of women were classed by the NHS as having ‘excellent’ dental health. The thing is, for many people, keeping up these standards is a secondary thought, especially when their time is preoccupied by important dealings with their clients or co-workers. However, allowing decay and pain to develop simply isn’t good for business, as first impressions can make or break deals and a confident smile is an undisputed part of that.

The issue is that going to the dentist can be very inconvenient, especially if you have to go out of your way and take time out of your busy schedule, so not having a local practice in close proximity to work can slow everything down to a grind. The knock on effects on your output do you no favours and will get you little sympathy in a competitive environment where you need to be the best you can be. It is essential to ensure that you see your dentist and hygienist at least twice a year to maintain good dental standards and avoid these inconveniences all together!
