Ways to Prevent Tooth Loss as You Get Older

The aging process isn’t just challenging to the body but to your dental health too. Many things happen that can result in problems for your teeth and gums. However, it’s never too late to make the right choices for your smile. In order to prevent tooth loss and other complications, you should:

  • Visit the dentist every six months for regular cleanings and exams
  • See us if you are in any dental pain 
  • Brush and floss regularly
  • Eat nutritious foods and sip water throughout the day

While all of this may sound familiar, it’s always important tips to be reminded of and make sure you’re practicing at home. We’re also sharing a video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that talks about a few other things you should keep in mind as well.
