Getting older isn’t always fun, but as the saying goes, it beats the alternative.
You already know that your body doesn’t work as well in your 40s as it did in its 20s, and that decline continues into your 60s. You may not realize that can affect your oral health as well.
As you get older, you are more susceptible to gum infections and tooth decay. This doesn’t mean periodontal problems or cavities are inevitable. Just keep up your good oral hygiene habits, including regular cleanings and exams at Dossett Dental.
