No matter how good you look and feel as you age, you teeth can make you appear much older. Learn to protect your aging teeth and keep them at their best.

How to Save Your Smile

You want to look and feel good as you get older, so don’t let your aging teeth affect your appearance, health, and confidence. You must embrace healthy dental care, make smart lifestyle choices, and see your family dentist in Detroit regularly to keep your teeth from showing their age. Follow this expert advice:

  • Brush your teeth gently at least twice a day.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect tooth enamel and gums.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Denture wearers should clean their dentures every day, remove while sleeping, and remove them for at least four hours each day.
  • Stop smoking to avoid many dental and medical conditions.
  • Visit your family dentist on a regular basis for dental check-ups, cleanings, and necessary treatments.

Dental Care for the Elderly

When you have a family member or friend who’s having difficulty with their dental care, consider asking to help them keep their aging teeth healthy. If your assistance is accepted, here’s how you can help:

  • Leave reminders around their home to brush and floss every day.
  • If you live with them, help them with their daily dental hygiene routine.
  • Take them to their family dentist or one who specializes in treating the elderly or disabled for regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and treatments.
  • If brushing and flossing are a challenge, talk to the dentist about ways to help them practice at-home dental care with ease.
  • If they wear dentures, pay attention to their eating habits because a sudden change in their intake can signal denture problems.
  • Make them want to take care of their teeth by being patient and supportive.
