Time cannot be circumvented or avoided no matter how hard you may try. Sooner or later, time will catch up to all of us. Regarding oral health, even if you have wonderful teeth, if you neglect them, time will eventually wear them down to a point they will need to be repaired or replaced. Aging and dental health go hand-in-hand, so do your part to ensure the future of your teeth and gums remains strong.
Never neglect your oral health care routines. This includes brushing and flossing daily. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once daily. Consider implementing alternative mouth-cleansing treatments such as mouthwash to assist with your oral health care.
The older you get, the more that negative actions will have negative consequences on your health. Bad habits such as smoking, drinking, using drugs, and eating poorly, will all spell disaster for your smile. Avoid negative habits and eat a nutritious diet to ensure your mouth has the greatest chance of success. Furthermore, avoid putting foods or objects in your mouth that can damage your smile and fracture your teeth.
