How to Keep Aging Teeth Healthy and Youthful


Time can take its toll on your teeth and make your smile look older. Learn some helpful hints to stop your smile from showing your age.

The Effects of Age on your Smile

Practicing proper dental care is a must at every age, but it’s especially important as you get older. You don’t need to assume that aging will leave you with dentures and dental care problems. While taking care of your teeth when you’re young will give you an advantage, it’s never too late to start a healthy dental hygiene routine and regularly visit an affordable dentist. By making the time for dental care, you’ll enjoy a strong set of healthy teeth that will keep you smiling through the years.

Significant Signs your Aging Teeth may Need more Attention

Did you know that older adults typically have many more severe dental health problems than younger men and women? Age often brings with it a weakened immune system and problems getting proper nutrition, which can lead to a variety of medical conditions. Yet treating these issues can cause dental care problems because certain medications can have a damaging effect on aging teeth. Plus, the loss of bone and muscle over time can lead to gum recession, which can cause tooth loss. You can prevent many of these problems by taking proper care of your teeth, but it’s important to know the risks that aging can pose to your teeth. The most common signs of dental issues associated with age include:

  • Red, swollen gums that bleed easily
  • Receded gums
  • Stained and darkened teeth
  • Bad breath
  • More cracks, chips, and fractures in teeth
  • Loose teeth

Safeguarding your Teeth over Time

Healthy oral hygiene is the same for both young and old, but taking care of your teeth and gums takes a little more time and effort as you age. Follow these simple steps to ensure your smile looks its best through the years:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily, preferably after you eat.
  • Floss at least once a day to clean areas between teeth and prevent plaque from forming.
  • Limit your intake of acidic and sugary foods and drinks because they can wear away tooth enamel and cause tooth decay.
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash twice a day to help reduce the bacteria and acid that lead to bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Avoid eating very hard foods that can harm your aging teeth or put excessive pressure on gums.

Visit an affordable dentist in Fayetteville for dental check-ups and cleanings twice a year.
