Ageing affects every part of your body, and that includes your oral health, but there is some good news as with the proper care, it’s possible to retain your natural teeth for life. However, the risk of developing gum disease, cavities, mouth infections and oral cancer is higher when you get older.

Your teeth are amazingly strong and can cope with immense pressure when you bite and chew food, but a lifetime of eating can gradually wear down the outer layer of enamel. Also, exposure to acid created by mouth bacteria and found in foods can dissolve protective enamel. When your tooth enamel is weaker, the risk of developing a cavity is higher. Other factors, such as prescription medication, can cause problems like dry mouth. Saliva is a protective fluid, helping to keep your mouth moist and comfortable and reducing your risk of cavities and gum disease.

Reducing the Impact of Ageing on Your Dental Health

Ensuring you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once-a-day will protect against dental disease. Good professional preventative dental care can help considerably, so make sure you come and see us regularly for checkups and cleanings, and for advice on how to reduce the effects of ageing.
