It may not be on the forefront of your mind to consider your teeth as part of your aging process, and you may be under the impression that your teeth will last longer than your other health functions. Or, you may think that old age means you will inevitably need dentures. Neither of these assumptions are true. Your teeth will age just like the rest of you, but you can strengthen your smile and slow down the aging process with a few steps. If you take proper care of your teeth every day, you can enjoy your natural smile for the rest of your life.

So, how can you help your teeth stay in good health?

– Eat a healthy diet full of foods that are good for teeth. Limit your intake of sugary and acidic foods, and always eat them with other foods that can decrease their potency.

– Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily.

– Attend your scheduled dental exams and cleanings at least twice a year with Dr. Benjamin Johnson and our team.

– Give up any unhealthy dental habits, such as smoking or chewing tobacco, drinking heavy amounts of alcohol, or taking drugs.
