As we age, oral health problems become more common due to a weakening immune system in the body. Did you know our oral health is closely linked to our overall health and well-being? Oral disease can be linked to other conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s. It’s essential that you look after the health of your teeth as you grow older. This can help you to avoid costly dental treatments and painful oral health concerns in the future.

At Dakabin Dental, we understand the importance of oral health at any age. As such, we want to provide some tips on how to take care of your oral health as you get older. As experts in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers, we want to share the ways you can prevent the need for cosmetic dentistry for years to come.

How Aging Affects Your Oral Health

  • As you age, saliva production in the mouth decreases resulting in a dry mouth. This can increase your risk for oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Older individuals are more prone to losing their teeth due to periodontal disease or an untreated cavity. Additionally, age-related wear and tear of the teeth can also lead to tooth loss.
  • Without proper oral care and regular dental check-ups, seniors may suffer from a condition called jaw bone loss. This condition can cause instability of the teeth and even difficulty chewing food.

The dentists at Dakabin Dental have in-depth knowledge and experience with oral health concerns that are the result of getting older. Our dentistry services include root canals, gum disease, tooth decay and fillings and dental implants to maintain the health of your teeth. All of which are services often needed by older patients who are prone to tooth loss, gum disease and wear and tear.

Tips for Taking Care of The Health of Your Teeth as You Age

1. Practice good oral hygiene habits. Brushing twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash are essential for keeping your teeth healthy no matter what your age is. If you have difficulty holding or using a toothbrush, talk to your dentist about other oral hygiene options. We also recommend not brushing your teeth so hard as you get older. Gums begin to recede naturally as we age and brushing too hard can speed the process up unnaturally.

2. Stay hydrated to prevent dry mouth. Saliva dilutes and washes away the acid build-up from food, beverages and bacteria throughout the day. If you don’t have enough saliva in your mouth the acid can lead to tooth decay.

3. Eat nutritious foods. Eating healthy and nutrient-rich food can help keep teeth strong and prevent cavities and gum disease caused by poor oral health habits.

Understanding the Benefits of Regular Check-ups with a Dentist As You Get Older

Regular dental check-ups are extremely important as you age to ensure oral health issues are caught and treated promptly. At Dakabin Dental, our dentists understand the oral health concerns of each patient and we make sure that each individual is given the best care possible.

We provide comprehensive dental exams for all patients so any oral health issues can be addressed properly and promptly.

Overall, proper oral care should not be taken lightly at any age. Taking steps to keep your teeth healthy will help preserve your smile for years to come. If you have any oral health concerns and live in Dakabin Queensland, book an appointment with us today we will be more than happy to assist you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Maintaining good oral health is more important than ever and Dakabin Dental provides the resources and tools to make it easy. Good oral hygiene can help prevent dental concerns like gum disease, tooth decay and even bad breath. As 2023 rolls in and we all get a year older, it’s important to understand that good oral and dental care can help us keep our teeth healthy and intact. Although Dakabin Dental has a fantastic smile makeover solution for those in need, there are many ways you can prevent tooth decay and gum disease now and in the future. Dakabin Dental’s guide to clean and healthy teeth offers simple steps that will help you achieve and maintain good oral health.

A Dentists Guide on How To Keep Your Teeth Clean and Healthy

Brushing your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste is the first step in maintaining good oral hygiene. Use gentle circular motions and brush for two minutes at least. Particularly focusing on areas where plaque tends to build up such as the backs of molars and around the gum line.

Flossing regularly should also be part of your routine. It helps remove plaque from between teeth, which can’t be reached by brushing alone. It also reduces inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria buildup.

Use Dakabin Dental’s helpful tips to ensure you are brushing and flossing effectively:

  1. Use an electric toothbrush – it makes brushing more efficient and effective, removing plaque in hard-to-reach places.
  2. Be sure to change your toothbrush every three months as they can harbour bacteria over time.
  3. Take your time when flossing – use slow and steady movements to make sure plaque is removed from each tooth’s surface.
  4. Use Mouthwash – Rinse your mouth with an alcohol-free mouthwash to help reduce bacteria and bad breath. Dakabin Dental recommends using a therapeutic mouthwash.
  5. Avoid Sugary Foods and Drinks – Eating sugary foods such as candy or drinking sodas can increase your risk of cavities and tooth decay. So it’s best to limit sugary snacks and drinks as much as possible.

In addition to brushing and flossing, Dakabin Dental recommends visiting your dentist regularly. You dentist can perform professional cleanings, checkups, and other preventive treatments. This can help maintain your oral health and identify problems early on before they become more serious. Professional cleanings will help keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come by strengthening your teeth and gums and detecting any oral health issues early on.

When Was the Last Time You Went For a Regular Dentist Checkup?

To maintain clean and healthy teeth it is recommended that you visit a dentist at least every 6 months for a regular checkup. Depending on the health of your teeth and gums you may be required to visit more frequently. Or, if your oral health is in great condition, even less frequently. But you won’t know until an experienced dentist has had a good look inside your mouth!

People who visit the dentist less often require more extensive work and in some cases, need a complete smile makeover. Luckily we do smile makeover consultations for free at Dakabin dental!

By following Dakabin Dental’s guide to having clean and healthy teeth, you can maintain good oral health and achieve a beautiful smile. Dakabin Dental is here to help you every step of the way.
