Old Age and Oral Care: Top Tips

There is no reason to sacrifice the health of your teeth and gums due to age. In fact, there are several ways in which you will be able to help ensure a bright and strong smile well into your silver years.

  • Replace damaged dental work as soon as you become aware of its presence.
  • Use an electric toothbrush if manual motions are impeded.
  • Schedule an appointment with your dentist to obtain an oral cancer screening.
