With the holiday season upon us, many patients find their homes full of sugary treats, and oral care often takes a back row seat. However, as you age, your smile becomes more vulnerable, and neglecting daily oral care can put your dental health at serious risk.

Dental health can naturally decline over time, but neglecting oral care will exacerbate the issue. At Crabtree Dental Center, we are committed to providing a reliable oral health facility where you can talk about your oral health with a trusted dentist and our team can help you develop effective dental care habits that keep your smile in good standing.

As you age, your smile can become more at risk of certain conditions, including:

– Dry mouth
– Periodontitis

– Tooth sensitivity

– Yellow teeth

– Tooth decay

Poor dental habits will only serve to increase your risk of these conditions, which can lead to infection and tooth and bone loss over time. This is why it’s so vital to take care of your oral health as you age. We invite you to keep your smile healthy by practicing these simple dental care tips:

– Brush your teeth for two minutes at a time twice a day.
– Floss food particles and plaque out of your teeth every day.
– Replace your toothbrush every three to four months.
– Visit the dentist every six months or less.

Dr. Alan and Cory Andrews and our team are dedicated to keeping your smile in good health through the holiday season. To learn more about effective oral care and to schedule a visit to our dental office in Colorado Springs, Colorado, please call 719-599-7453 today.
