No matter your age, having healthy teeth and gums can keep you looking attractive and youthful. Discover trusted tips for keeping older teeth at their best.

How Age Affects your Smile

Practicing proper dental care is a must at every age, but it’s especially important as you get older. Don’t assume that aging will leave you with dentures and dental care problems. Taking care of your teeth while you’re young will give you an advantage, but it’s never too late to start a healthy dental hygiene routine and regularly visit an affordable dentist in Orlando. By taking time for dental care, you’ll have a strong set of healthy teeth that keep you smiling through the years.

Serious Signs of Aging Teeth

Research shows that older women and men usually experience more frequent and serious oral health care problems than younger adults. See, age often brings about a weakened immune system and problems getting proper nutrition, which can lead to a number of medical conditions. Yet treating these issues can cause dental care problems because certain medications can have a harmful effect on aging teeth. In addition, the loss of bone and muscle over time can lead to gum recession, which can cause tooth loss. While you can prevent many of these problems by taking proper care of your teeth, it’s important to know the risks that aging can pose to your teeth. The most common signs of dental distress associated with age include:

  • Red, swollen gums that bleed very easily
  • Gum recession
  • Bad breath
  • Stained and darkened teeth
  • More chips and cracks in teeth
  • Loose teeth

Protecting your Teeth over Time

The basics of good dental hygiene remain the same at every age, but you need to take a little more time to care for your teeth and gums as you age. Follow these simple steps to keep your smile at its best through the years:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily, preferably after you eat.
  • Floss at least once a day to clean areas between teeth and prevent plaque from forming.
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash twice a day to help reduce the bacteria and acid that lead to bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Limit your consumption of sugary and acidic foods and beverages since they can erode tooth enamel and cause cavities.
  • Avoid eating very hard foods that can harm your aging teeth or put excessive pressure on gums.

See an affordable dentist in Orlando for dental check-ups and cleanings twice a year.
