Probably you’ve been brushing your teeth for decades, so why stop now? Oral hygiene only becomes more important as you age. Brushing regularly and thoroughly using a fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and seeing your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings/contact'}}}} will ensure your mouth stays happy and healthy. If you suffer from mobility issues due to stroke or other medical conditions, you can still clean your teeth effectively with an electric toothbrush. They’ll also help if you find toothbrushing tiring! You can also make sure you’re flossing correctly by investing in a water flossing system.
If you’ve lost teeth, wear dentures or partial dentures, you should still see your dentist regularly. A dentist can help with the fitting of your dentures, make sure they’re undamaged, and can help to protect the rest of your mouth by scanning for oral cancer or other complications.
