     Many adults care for their teeth using habits that were formed early in childhood. It is important to be sure that those habits are good ones. As we age, our teeth and mouths can develop very different needs.

    Gum disease, dry mouth, oral cancer and tooth decay (cavities) can become issues which can also have negative effects on our overall health.
