Dental Issues and Age

As you age, you may notice changes in your oral health. Your teeth may begin to lose their white color and appear gray or yellow. They may appear worn down or altered in shape because of years of use. As your enamel begins to lose its luster, your teeth may also start to appear duller.

But regardless of your age, the most important defense against the wear and tear that aging has on your teeth is brushing and flossing regularly. This is the best way to keep your teeth strong and your gums healthy. Regular dental visits are also equally important to remove built up plaque and tartar on your teeth and gums. This will help you stay free from periodontal disease and will help keep your mouth looking dazzling and healthy in your later years.

Also, if you maintain routine dental checkups, you are also more likely to be notified about any dental problems while they are still small and manageable. If left untreated, simple oral problems can advance and become serious issues that may call for extensive and costly treatment.

By practicing good prevention techniques, you can keep your natural teeth well into your elderly years.
