It is often said that youth is wasted on the young. Why? Because with age and experience comes appreciation and, hopefully, bountiful reasons to smile. At Primo Smiles, we love our older, more experienced patients because of their life experience and the warmth they bring with them every time they come in to see us. Even in the later years of life, focusing on maintaining good oral health is vital to overall health. Why?
Advancing age puts seniors at risk of oral health problems. With a dedication to regularly scheduled cleanings and checkups at Primo Smiles, Cynthiana seniors can fight the challenges of aging teeth and enjoy better oral health.
Stop Problems in their Tracks!
Gum disease develops slowly, as plaque builds up at the base of your teeth. If you are a current or past smoker, floss irregularly, grind your teeth, or lack vitamin C in your diet, you may be at an even higher risk of gum disease. Age is also a culprit that can increase the risk of gum disease. While it is true that gum disease is more prevalent in older Cynthiana residents, aging doesn’t mean you have to have gum disease.
With a little help from Dr. Kerns
, you can develop some handy techniques to stop gum disease in its tracks! Sure you’ve been brushing for decades and decades but did you know that there is a right way to brush to fight gum disease?
