Did you know your smile changes with age? Well, it’s true! As your body changes, your dentist is here to help your oral health stay on positive track. That is why our office here at Smile Studio Dental in Falls Church, Virginia, is happy to talk to you about your smile and how your smile ages.

Did you know that with proper care, your teeth can last throughout your life? As long as you keep your oral health in tip-top shape, you can keep your smile healthy for a lifetime. As we age, our body changes, which includes our mouth too. If you disregard your smile with common oral hygiene habits, you can be putting your smile at risk.

Here are some tips and tricks to keep your smile healthy and bright as you age:

-If you wear dentures, be sure to clean them each day. If you keep your dentures clean you can keep your gums healthy and bacteria free.
-Floss each day. If you floss between your teeth and along your gum line, you can keep cavities at bay and your smile in healthy condition.
-Visit your dentist frequently. If you visit your dentist every six months, you can keep your teeth in healthy shape and correct small problems before they become large problems.
-Brush for two minutes a day, at least twice a day. Brushing will fight away the plaque and keep tartar from forming on the teeth in your smile.
-Avoid tobacco products at all costs. Tobacco gives a serious threat to your oral health putting you at higher risk for oral cancer, as well as other health risks like lung cancer.

If you follow these tips and tricks as you age, you can keep your oral health in wonderful condition for your lifetime.
