With proper care, your teeth can last a lifetime. However, as we age the treatment our teeth needs often changes. For instance, older adults are more prone to cavities, teeth sensitivity, and may have other health conditions that affect teeth and gums. Seniors who have or need dentures also have special care needs.
Good dental hygiene is important to overall health, and chronic illnesses and medications can worsen oral health. On the flip-side, your mouth can be a “window” to the state of your general health – sometimes visiting the dentist is your first line of defence for your general health!
As we get older, it becomes even more important that we take good care of our dental hygiene. Alex Bratic Dental Care is your partner in that effort!
