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. According to the Journal of the American Dental Association “the mouth is a window into the health of the body.” Our mouths can also reveal the first signs of disease within our bodies.
