Aging is something that happens to everyone. September is Healthy Aging Month, which means it’s time to think about things you can do to stay feeling great as you get older. There are lots of ways you can remain physically and mentally active. This list of tips is a good starting point. But don’t forget about your dental health! As your smile ages, you’ll want to keep it in top condition.
As you get older, you are more susceptible to issues like dry mouth, gum disease, sleep apnea, and missing teeth. We offer many solutions to address these conditions at our offices in Deltaville, VA and Mathews. For example, we can fit you for a custom mouthguard that will help with snoring and other sleep apnea symptoms. Or we can replace teeth with dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
The best way to maintain excellent oral health as your smile ages is to brush and floss teeth daily, eat a diet that contains lots of dental-friendly foods, and see us every six months for an exam and cleaning.
