September is Healthy Aging Month

Some people think tooth decay is just for children, but did you know you are at risk your whole life? Untreated decay and gum disease can lead to serious health problems such as infection, damage to bone or nerve and tooth loss. Dental infections that are left untreated can even spread to other parts of the body and in very rare cases, can be life threatening.

The good news is that dental disease is preventable. You can practice preventive dentistry yourself by adopting these healthy habits: Always remember to brush and floss your teeth twice a day, eat a balanced diet and limit in between-meal snacks. By following a healthy dental routine, making smart food choices, and scheduling regular dental visits you can lower your risk for tooth decay.

Did you know that the average adult between the ages of 20 and 65 have three or more decayed or missing teeth? If you are missing one or more teeth, there are plenty of options to correct the problem.
