Your Teeth As You Age

Published on January 30th, 2019

As we age, our teeth begin to feel the effects of everyday wear and tear. Chewing, talking, grinding, and biting all take a toll on our pearly whites. Don’t let this discourage you, there are tons of tricks that can help keep your smile in top-tier condition. By paying attention to this advice from our dentist in Lincoln Park, you can be sure your teeth are getting the excellent treatment they deserve.

Acidic Foods & Beverage

Highly acidic foods and drinks wear down the enamel on your teeth. Once your enamel erodes, there’s no way to restore it. Unfortunately, some of everyone’s favorite snacks and beverages are highly acidic, such as citrus, tomato products, coffee, and wine. Scale back on acidic foods as much as you can and make sure to eat a snack that has a higher pH level after your morning cup of coffee.

Gum Care

Your gums are key to your overall oral health, which is why flossing every day is critical. Without proper care, plaque accumulation can lead to soreness, swelling, and bleeding. Remember, your toothbrush can’t do all of the work!

Hydration

As you begin to age, your mouth becomes gradually drier. This is an issue because saliva helps clean your teeth and protect them from harmful decay. You can fight the clock by drinking lots of water or chewing sugar-free gum.

Booking some time with our dentist in Lincoln Park is one of the best ways to keep your mouth healthy. The Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park are always ready to assist with any of your oral health needs. Give us a call to schedule an appointment!
