As you age, your risk of dental problems increases every year. To keep your smile healthy and strong, follow these trusted tips.

Minimize Wear and Tear on your Teeth

While teeth are naturally strong, age and time can take their toll. This leaves many older adults struggling with eroded tooth enamel, receded gums, jaw damage, dental diseases, and other oral issues. To protect your aging teeth, rely on these proven dental care tactics:

  • Get regular dental check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a very gentle touch to keep from damaging your tooth enamel and gums
  • Make sure to floss on a daily basis
  • Try professional or over-the-counter tooth whitening to remove stubborn stains from aging teeth
  • Talk to your dentist about applying protective varnishes to your teeth to prevent further decay and damage

  • Suck on sugarless candies to increase your saliva
  • Drink more water, and try holding it in your mouth a few extra moments before swallowing
  • Talk to your doctor about changing your medications

After all, developing gum disease is so common as you age that it is the primary reason for tooth loss in older adults. Luckily, gum disease and many other oral problems are treatable at any age. But instead of needing to fix this problem, a better strategy is to focus on prevention and protection by maintaining proper at-home dental care and getting regular professional cleanings and check-ups from your affordable dentist in Orange City to
