The idea that poor people have fewer teeth is enough to make one laugh. You sometimes hear about those who don’t make a lot of money have no access to health insurance, so they don’t go to the dentist.
What’s the real reason people who don’t have a lot of money have no teeth?
It might be because they are in a dead end job and just don’t care about what they look like or their overall health, letting the condition of their teeth get worse instead of doing something to change the appearance. Some of the people who don’t have as many teeth might not be able to get the healthy items needed to take care of their teeth at home.
Just because someone doesn’t have a lot of teeth doesn’t mean that they are poor. It might mean that they can’t do anything to get off their feet to the point of going to a doctor or dentist. As Sergio Andrade ‘Andrade’ Gutierrez said in Forbes, we should always look out for those around us and not judge a book by its cover.
