As you grow older, you’ll have to deal with different health issues. You might have to worry about hair loss or achy joints as you ease into being middle-aged.

One of those problems is dental health. Dental health isn’t a common concern about growing older, but it should be. Just like you have to be more careful not to break a bone or pull too many all-nighters the older you get, you have to do a bit more to take care of your teeth.

What do I do?
The best thing you can do to keep up your dental health in middle age is to continue seeing a dentist. Regular visits with Dr. John Lee are critical to keeping your teeth in the best shape possible – from your first tooth to your last.

Another thing to do is to not be shy if you’re having problems with your teeth. Let the staff here at John Lee, DDS in Fresno, California, know if you have teeth that are bothering you. From ones that feel loose to ones that hurt, you can tell us everything.

Keep up the oral health
Just because you’re approaching middle age doesn’t mean you get to slack off on oral health care.This makes all the difference in the world, and can really be what determines if you need dentures and implants, or get to keep your real teeth.

If you don’t already, consider using mouthwash. It’ll help in more ways than one.

Middle age brings a lot different problems with it, but one you shouldn’t have to worry about is your dental health. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call us today at 559-439-9621.
