Keep Your Natural Smile in Tip-top Shape, Even in Your Twilight Years

Posted May 15, 2017.

Keep your natural smile in tip-top shape, even in your twilight years. As you age, the wear and tear on your oral health can become more prominent if you are not constantly taking steps to keep your smile shining. As you age, keep your smile remarkable with top-notch oral health care routines.The daily habits you keep can either make or break your smile. Whereas daily brushing and flossing habits can greatly enhance your oral health and keep your teeth and gums clean and clear of bacteria and food residue, habits such as smoking and chewing tobacco can do the opposite. Bad habits increase your risk for oral ailments and should be discontinued as early as possible.

If your teeth have already been damaged over time from bad habits, dentures may be necessary. However, dentures still need to be cleaned and cared for as if they are natural teeth, so always remove your dentures every night for safe cleaning. Before inserting your dentures back into your mouth every morning, make sure they are washed and cleaned, and your mouth has been washed and cleaned as well.
