The teeth helps the body to digest the food we eat by breaking it down into pieces but aside from that there more functions this small part of the body does. Richmond dentists have observed the connection in the healthiness of the teeth and of the organs of the body after having many patients who suffered from dental problems that suffered from serious illnesses as well like heart attack.

The internal organs of the body is important such as the heart and the liver so as having it damaged will give the worst problem that a person will experience. There are organs which needs costly and many surgeries once damaged and it will give a big problem. The Richmond cosmetic dentistry explains how the teeth can show some signs of the illnesses that patient have in his organs. In the list, every tooth represents different parts of the body and the position of the tooth is number from the middle line of the jaw.
