A common myth is as you age, loosing your teeth is inevitable.  The truth is: if cared for properly, your teeth can last a lifetime.

Your mouth changes as you age.   The followings are the most common issues associated with aging:

  • The nerves in your teeth can become smaller, making your teeth less sensitive to cavities or other problems.
  • Your mouth can become drier, which make your teeth more susceptible to cavities.
  • Other health issues such as hypertension, heart problems or diabetes can bring on gum infection.

If you don’t get regular dental exams, this in turn can lead to these problems not being diagnosed until it is too late.

Tips for Maintaining and Improving Your Oral Health:

  • Brush twice a day with a toothbrush with soft bristles.  I strongly recommend an electric toothbrush with a big handle such as Sonicare.
  • Clean between your teeth once a day with floss or waterpik.
  • If you wear full or partial dentures, remember to clean them on a daily basis. Take your dentures out of your mouth at night.
  • Drink tap water. Since most contains fluoride, it helps prevent tooth decay no matter how old you are.  Ask  your dentist for topical Fluoride treatment.
  • Quit smoking. Besides putting you at greater risk for lung and other cancers, smoking increases problems with gum disease, tooth decay and tooth loss.
  • Visit your dentist. Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a complete dental check-up and cleaning.

By adopting healthy oral habits at home, making smart choices about diet and lifestyle, and seeking regular dental care, you can help your teeth last a lifetime—whether you have your natural teeth, implants or wear dentures.
