You can’t avoid aging, but you can avoid the serious damage it often does to your teeth. Discover how to protect your smile and keep it healthy for the ages.

Beware Wear and Tear on Teeth

While teeth are naturally strong, age and time can take their toll. This can result in tooth enamel erosion, gum recession, root exposure, dental disease, and more. To protect your aging teeth, rely on these proven dental care tactics:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a very gentle touch to avoid damaging your tooth enamel and gums
  • Floss daily
  • Get regular dental check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist
  • Ask your dentist about having protective varnishes applied to your teeth to prevent further decay and damage
  • Try professional or over-the-counter tooth whitening to remove stubborn stains from aging teeth

  • Chew sugarless gum to encourage saliva production
  • Suck on sugarless candies to increase your saliva
  • Drink more water
  • Talk to your doctor about changing your medications

After all, developing gum disease is so common as you age that it’s the primary reason for tooth loss in older adults. Fortunately, gum disease and many other oral problems are treatable at any age. But rather than face the problem, focus on prevention and protection by maintaining proper at-home dental care and getting regular professional check-ups and cleanings from your affordable dentist to help your smile withstand th
