Be Proud of Your Aging Smile

As we become older, we experience changes. Some are good, and others may drive us crazy. However, when it comes to bodily changes, it helps to have a caring professional on your side. It’s a common belief that as we age, we inevitably lose teeth. However, it’s not true. It takes a lifetime of good care, but your teeth can last you throughout your life. Modern dentistry and the use of the latest technology means you can keep your smile throughout your progressing years.

Keep Smiling

Did you know gum disease is the main cause of missing teeth, not tooth decay? It’s important to care for your gums, especially if you are over 50. As we grow older, our bodies find it harder to resist infection, such as those that cause gum disease.

With careful management from your dental team at New Smile Dental and a daily routine of brushing and flossing, you can keep healthy teeth and gums. Your dentist can help you to maintain good oral health and can recommend if you need more frequent cleanings to specific procedures such as root planning and scaling.

What’s the True Value of Your Smile?

With age comes wisdom and we understand it is essential to take good care of our health and bodies, for both ourselves and our loved ones. Maintaining a healthy mouth is integral to your overall wellbeing and happiness. Our smile affects many aspects of our lives, such as social and professional interactions, talking and eating and our general self-confidence. A well-cared for smile is vital to looking and feeling positive and healthy as we age.

Another positive aspect of aging is the time and ability to take greater care of ourselves and enjoy our interests. Taking the opportunity to invest in your smile can help you to enjoy your golden years.
