As we get older our teeth change a lot as our body starts to degenerate and age. The dental aging process will result in a change in the type of procedure that you will require, as you will most likely change from cosmetic treatments to dental surgery treatments and extractions which are required with age. Curtis Couch D.D.S in Thousand Oaks offers all-encompassing dental service to all patients, which means we offer a range of cosmetic treatments, restorative treatments and preventative treatments for every aspect of your life.
Teeth go through a lot during one life-spanYour teeth endure a lot during a lifetime and because of this it gets increasingly important for older people to visit the dentist. Over a lifetime our teeth get battered around by food, items we hold with our mouths such as keys and wrappers (even though we shouldn’t) and dental conditions like grinding or bruxism. Given the extent of obstacles our teeth go through they are extremely resilient when it comes to damage, however constant abuse of sugar, coffee and cigarettes can result in our teeth becoming damaged. In order to prevent damage from our beloved vices it’s important to have a strict dental hygiene from a young age as part of your preventative dentistry plan.
Preventative dentistry is the key to healthy teeth during your old ageHaving healthy teeth when you’re old is not as easy as ‘good genetics’. You must care for your adult teeth from their early development to ensure on-going dental health. A high quality dental hygiene regime will include:
- Brushing your teeth before bed and in the morning
- Flossing at night before sleep
- Visiting Curtis Couch D.D.S twice per year for a dental check-up or as recommended
- Utilising mouthwashes which can be recommended by your dentist
