Aging affects your whole body. Yet, how many people realize the affects it has on your oral health? Did you know, the natural process of aging can cause many other health issues if you neglect the daily care of your teeth?
Some of these conditions associated with aging include:
· Dry mouth
· Root and coronal caries
· Sensitivity to medications
If you have poor dental habits, severe conditions can occur such as severe cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss, which could also lead to bone loss over time. That is why taking care of your oral health is vital as you age. Easy tips to help keep your smile in classic shape include:
· Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day
· Floss daily
· Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months
· Visit your dentist once every six months
