As we age, issues that affect our mouth can increase or worsen so, it’s especially important to be aware of conditions associated with aging that can impact oral health. It was an assumption that as we age we would lose our natural teeth. But, that’s not the case for today’s older adults who are keeping their natural teeth longer than ever before.
With good oral hygiene you can help avoid serious health problems such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even stroke. Indeed, medical research is beginning to show that a healthy mouth equates to a healthy body and a longer life.
