What You Should Know About Adults’ Dental Health:
The prime of life is also the prime time for things to go wrong in your mouth. As we age, those previous days of not-so-good dental hygiene catch up with us.
We’ve all heard the term “gingivitis” in TV commercials. Red, swollen and tender gums that tend to bleed when you brush. If you have any of these symptoms, you need to see Dr. Drahota soon as this can lead to tooth loss.
We all know by adult age that your dental health can contribute to your overall health. Long term studies have shown a connection between periodontitis (a gum disease) and heart disease, as well as diabetes. Also, tooth sensitivity increases as we age since gums have a tendency to recede as you age. And, did you know that you can get cavities around fillings? Regular dental examinations and teeth cleanings can offer early detection of and help prevent future problems.
Keep that great smile by setting regular appointments, but most importantly, brush at least twice day and floss at least once a day.
