Certain aspects of dental care, flossing for example, can present a daily challenge for anyone, and these tasks can get even tougher in your golden years. Read on for tips to keep up with your oral care routine as you age.
Everyday Tooth Care
As you grow older, your teeth are at risk for more and more complicated problems, especially without proper care. To avoid things like tooth discoloration, dry mouth, decay, gingivitis, tooth loss, and more, keep up with your daily brushing and flossing. If you struggle to brush and floss effectively due to limited mobility, there are tools to help you get the job done. An electric toothbrush can be a huge help, as its spinning head does most of the scrubbing work for you–your job is simply to guide it. Flossing, often even tricker, may be made easier with a water flosser.
As hard as you try to keep your mouth clean, issues like decay and tooth loss happen. If they happen to you, we’re here to help, offering a range of restorative dental services, including implants and dentures. Here at Normandy Dentistry, we offer durable, quality full and partial dentures. If you need to have multiple teeth replaced, dentures are an option that will leave you feeling comfortable and looking great. Implants are a popular solution for single tooth replacement, leaving you with a custom tooth that looks brand new.
Our Dental Savings Plan
If the cost of dental care is what’s between you and your dental health, we’re here to help. We offer a dental savings plan as a great alternative to an insurance plan, and it’s a popular choice with our senior patients. For a low, monthly fee, the plan covers routine preventative care and gives you access to discounts on a range of other services with us.
