Substance abuse takes a toll on every inch of your body, and your mouth is no exception: Teeth can become riddled with cavities, cracks, sensitivity and staining and in extreme cases an addict can lose teeth and end up with devastating damage to gums as well. Thanks to modern dentistry, though, more people in recovery are getting another chance at healthy teeth and a brighter grin.
Star Dental Implant Center, Costa Rica, specializes in providing affordable treatment to patients in recovery looking to rebuild their smile and their lives.
A study by Kelton Global of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2013 revealed that the most important aspect of a good first impression is an attractive smile. Bad teeth impact your confidence and the way you are perceived by others.
Allan Clear, Executive Director of the Harm Reduction Coalition, says that people’s perceptions of tooth loss and decay are “another piece of the stigma” associated with addiction. It also impacts how people with addiction see themselves. “When you have teeth missing, or you look a certain way, or your teeth actually make you sound a certain way when you speak,” he says, “it can do horrible stuff to your self-confidence.” Dental work can be crucial in helping people to reenter the job market and reintegrate into mainstream society.
