It is never wise to assume your teeth are going to fail just because you’re older. In fact, your dentist can help make sure your teeth are restored and adequately cared for. In addition, as long as you’re cleaning them on a daily basis, you can make sure your tooth enamel stays strong, so your smile can last as long as you do.

Your oral health often depends on your oral health care. As you get older, it is essential to make sure you are continually brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day as well. As a general rule of thumb, you should always be using nonabrasive products such as toothbrushes with soft bristles and non-abrasive toothpaste. Also, make sure other dental products are being used effectively. If you suffer from any kind of joint or muscle pain, consider switching out your cleaning utensils with easier to operate tools such as electric toothbrushes and water flossers.

Additional saliva production can be helpful for your smile. To help manage saliva production, try chewing sugarless gum after meals. Saliva is a naturally occurring substance which can help eliminate plaque from your mouth and neutralize acids on your teeth and gums. Furthermore, you can help lower your risk of dental erosion by improving your diet. This includes avoiding sugary or starchy foods while avoiding sticky or chewy sweets that linger in your mouth long after consumption. If you should ever suffer from an oral accident or injury, be sure to visit your dentist for the necessary restorations.
