Flossing Gorilla Underlines the Primal Importance of Good Oral Health, says Medical Center Dental Care

A September 28 article in The Daily Mail reports on the case of Kera, a Western Lowland Gorilla residing at England’s Bristol Zoo. Kera was spotted by photographer Miriam Haas, who caught her on film using a branch to clean out the spaces between her teeth. Los Angeles Area oral health clinic Medical Center Dental Care says that the intriguing case of Kera, the flossing gorilla, points out that, at least among our fellow primates, there is something very basic about our relationship to our teeth.

Based in the Los Angeles San Fernando Valley neighborhood of West Hills, the clinic notes that it has worked with patients of all ages and from all walks of life, and it is clear that, the healthier and brighter the smile of a patient, the happier and more confident they usually happen to be. The clinic adds that the issue is the most dramatic in patients with severely comprised teeth and/or gums. Patients who may have lost teeth due to an accident or severe oral health issues are often plagued by poor self-esteem and an appearance that might prevent them from gaining employment or social acceptance. The firm adds that that typically changes once these patients have been provided with dental implants. The implants, which not only look and perform just like real teeth, are also the only solution for missing teeth that prevent bone loss. The clinic adds that the deep psychological impact of having teeth that feel and look real is often visible on the faces of patients.

Medical Center Dental Care says that, especially in American culture, smiles play a major role in how people are judged and that facts has boosted the popularity of cosmetic dentistry. However, as the story of Kera indicates, the relationship between our teeth and our sense of self may go much deeper. After all, the clinic notes, our teeth, gums, and mouth are extremely intimate parts of our anatomy. Humans need them to obtain proper nourishment and they are obviously tied in strongly to the enjoyment we get out of eating our favorite dishes and enjoying our favorite beverages, which many of us consider among life’s most essential pleasures.

The clinic concludes by noting that, despite our deep ties to them, too many of us take our teeth for granted and only really appreciate them when they are endangered. If patients just take a moment to really think about how they would feel if their teeth were gone, it might help them to remember to take better care of them. It’s never a bad time to take a moment for good oral hygiene and regular trips to a dentist’s office, says Medical Center Dental Care.
