Have you ever asked yourself about the effects that aging can have on your smile? Luckily, your teeth are built strong, and with a little care they can remain solid for rest of your life and can continue to serve you well even as chewing and eating can wear them down.

Are you familiar with aging and dental health and the effect on your smile? As with all oral health habits, suitable prevention is key to success. Brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once per day are two treatments you should always use to protect your tooth enamel from damage. If your tooth enamel remains strong, your teeth will have the opportunity to blossom.

However, accidents do occur from time to time. If you have suffered an oral accident or injury and have lost any teeth, they should be fixed as soon as possible. If a tooth is replaced with dentures, take care when storing your dentures so cross contamination will not occur. Furthermore, avoid all bad habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco, using heavy drugs, or eating sugary foods.
