Is your oral health in good standing? Have you been doing enough to ensure your mouth is getting the treatment it deserves? If not, there is no better time to start, as your teeth and gums will continue to decline as you age if the proper steps are not taken to keep them protected and clean. Beyond keeping your mouth clean, you should also remove bad habits from your life.
Brushing and flossing should remain a crucial part of your life, and a continued path of brushing at least twice every day and flossing once every day should be strictly adhered to. However, as we age, our muscles can break down or weaken and our joints can wear out easier. If this happens, try switching to different cleaning goods that are easier to operate, such as electric toothbrushes or water flosser.
It’s also important to remove any unhealthy habits and risks from your life that can destroy your oral health profile. This includes risky habits such as smoking and chewing tobacco, as well as using drugs, including both prescription and recreational drugs. If you suffer from bad habits and need additional oral health care treatment, make sure to find the time to schedule an appointment with our dentist at our office.
