Mature Smiles

As the body matures, so does the mouth. Many things like diet, past dental work, illness, and medications affect the teeth and mouth. It is important to have regular check-ups and cleanings, so any needs you have can be addressed. Sometimes, replacing older, worn or chipped fillings can help eliminate the need for more extensive work. If you wait, there can be a risk of a tooth breaking. Balancing your bite by replacing missing teeth can be valuable. Nutrition as we age is important. If missing teeth prevent you from eating well, it can lead to illness. Many medications cause the mouth to become very dry. It is important to have your teeth checked and cleaned because a dry mouth often leads to more tooth decay. We can make the proper recommendations for you to have a healthy a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
