How To Brush Your Teeth
- Brush your teeth using a soft bristled brush.
- Brush teeth three times per day
- Replace your toothbrush every three or four months
- Use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
Root Canal Treatment
We use root canal treatment to find the cause and then treat problems of the tooth’s soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.
Preventing Tooth loss
- Brush teeth daily
- Floss daily.
- Visit your dentist every six months.
- Limit sugar intake.
- Eat a well-balanced diet.
- Avoid tobacco and cigarette products.
Halitosis – or chronic bad breath – is something that mints, mouthwash or a good brushing can’t solve. Unlike “morning breath” or a strong smell that lingers after a tuna sandwich, halitosis remains for an extended amount of time and may be a sign of something more serious.
Dental Care for Seniors
Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary.
