I think there is a correlation between between being depressed and neglecting your teeth. If I am right, then its possible you pull yourself from a funk by taking care of your teeth.

What do you think?

When I had the worst few years not that long ago, I couldn’t afford to fix my teeth, and that added to my very deep unexpected depression. One of the first things I did once on an even keel again was fix them, and really really fix them. It’s a great feeling.

Hahahahaha yes most of the time we gnash our teeth when we’re nervous 😬 and can often lead to depression

Possibly so. That’s an interesting idea. I’ve been doing it for the first time in my life. My teeth are jacked because of negligence over the years, but last year I finally bought dental insurance and have been taking care of my teeth consistently for the first time in my life. I feel better, but don’t know which came first—did I feel better and then start taking care of my teeth or the other way around?

I was interested in your idea, so I started studying information on this topic. Depression increases the risk of dental and gum diseases by 57%, American experts from the Academy of Periodontology found.

I think there’s a connection. I’m lucky that my teeth are pretty good, but I hate going to the dentist. The last couple years have been rough, but one of the ways I’ve been trying to improve things is by taking better care of my teeth: oil pulling, special tartar removing toothpaste in addition to regular toothpaste and flossing twice a day. I think it has helped with depression for sure. I have Capricorn rising, btw.

Interesting correlation! I guess I'm doing pretty well off in that regard. It's been awhile since I skipped 2x/day brushing. When I was experiencing feelings of depression before, this would probably be more like 1x/day. Especially when I had Saturn in 12th and then my Saturn return right after that.
