Did you know that your teeth can outlast a plethora of other parts of your body? Of course, teeth do age, however, you can protect through some simple steps…and keep your natural teeth your entire life!
Read on for more.
Keeping your teeth healthy for a lifetime
Protecting against tooth loss is something you should think about daily.
For instance, consuming drinks and foods that are acidic can wear away at tooth enamel, making them prone to infection and decay. But brushing twice daily and flossing your teeth help to protect them.
Using a fluoride toothpaste also helps keep teeth strong and healthy, as fluoride reduces acid and helps make teeth resistant to decay.
Further, visiting us twice a year for your checkup and cleaning can also help to keep teeth their healthiest. This helps to remove bacteria before cavities and inflammation present itself.
However, if teeth are not properly cared for, they could need to be removed later in life. In this case, dentures or implants may be your only option.
If you’d like to learn more about how you can take action to keep your teeth in their optimal shape, we welcome your consultation!
