As you grow older, you’ll have to deal with different health issues. From sore joints to worrying about losing your hair, growing old can seem fraught with potential problems.
One of those problems is dental health. This isn’t something we really think about changing as we age, but it does. Just like you have to be more careful not to break a bone or pull too many all-nighters the older you get, you have to do a bit more to take care of your teeth.
What do I do?
First and foremost, it’s important to continue seeing a dentist. Regular visits with Dr. Jessica Cho or Dr. Ru-mee Han are critical to keeping your teeth in the best shape possible – from your first tooth to your last.
You also need to make sure that you’re letting the staff here at Dental Group of Anaheim in Anaheim, California, know if you’re having any issues with teeth. From ones that feel loose to ones that hurt, you can tell us everything.
Keep up the oral health
You’ll also want to make sure that you’re still vigilant about brushing and flossing. This makes all the difference in the world, and can really be what determines if you need dentures and implants, or get to keep your real teeth.
Adding mouthwash to your oral health routine as you get older isn’t a bad idea, either. It’ll help in more ways than one.
At the end of the day, even though it’s not always fun to think about, it’s important to make sure that you’re keeping your teeth in great shape while you age. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call us today at 714-635-5500.
