We all want to stay in great shape as we get older – and that includes our smiles. September is Healthy Aging Month, which seems like a great time to remind you that your teeth and gums may require a little special attention. We’re happy to help you keep them in top condition!

As you’ll see in this short video from the American Dental Association, aging smiles are more susceptible to issues like dry mouth, discolored enamel, and receding gums. With regular exams and cleanings, we can keep an eye on these kinds of issues and treat them when necessary. That’s why it’s more important than ever to visit our San Pedro, CA office at least once every six months. 

If your insurance plan no longer includes dental coverage, you may be tempted to skip these regular visits. That’s not a good idea, as small issues can turn into big problems without early detection and treatment. Ask our team about our Membership Plan. You simply make low monthly payments that cover the cost of your exams and cleanings and offer savings on other services too.
