Interesting facts you didn’t know about John Lennon’s teeth…

Expense issues often overtake health concerns when considering cosmetic dentistry. Take a look at John Lennon. His tooth went at Omega Auctions for a whopping £19000! Now that’s one expensive tooth!

John had given this tooth to his former housekeeper Dot Jarlett asking her to dispose of it after he supposedly pulled the tooth out in his own kitchen! The tooth ended up for auction given by his housekeeper’s son Barry Jarlett.

There are two interesting facts here:

1. The tooth sold for such an enormous amount and…

2. The fact that he had taken this tooth out by himself in his own kitchen!

This tells us a great deal about the state of his mouth. He must have had terrible gum problems needing urgent gum disease treatment. Also, if a tooth is loose enough to be able to be pulled out by the owner then it must have advanced gum disease. Mouths that commonly have gum problems also have associated dental decay. Doesn’t sound like he was a regular dental visitor…

This issue highlights existing problems in the general population of UK:

Did you know researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease?

Over 80% of Britain’s population has gum disease. Are you a part of this statistic?

Research has shown, and experts agree, that there is an association between periodontal diseases (irreversible gum disease) and other chronic inflammatory conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore, treating inflammation (reversible gum disease) with gum disease treatment may not only help manage diseases of the mouth but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.

We at The Perfect Smile Studios are committed to creating beautiful, healthy and long lasting smiles. Our Team is dedicated and trained to provide you with the highest level of care. However, despite our efforts we still find that many people are in need of more information on how to best take care of their mouth and teeth. People are still disillusioned about many aspects of dentistry. The conditions in your mouth can lead to other health problems and future treatment like dental implants and cosmetic dentures.

Not only can bacteria in your mouth cause other health problems but, did you know that these costly and painful conditions can be prevented?

Mouth and throat diseases, which range from cavities to cancer, cause pain and disability for millions of people each year. This fact is disturbing because almost all oral diseases are largely preventable. Therefore we at The Perfect Smile Studios have created special consultation days where we do oral cancer scans and talk to you about the health of your mouth and to prevent problems from ever occurring.

An unhealthy mouth will not only cost you considerably in the long run but may also shorten the length of your life. How important is your life to you and your family?

We hope to make a difference in your lives.

Dentistry is not just about expensive cosmetic dentistry but more about cosmetic enhancement superimposed upon health and vitality.
