Tips for Having a Strong and Healthy Senior Smile This Spring

Posted .

As spring arrives and the weather gets warmer, you’re likely getting ready for some outdoor activities, like gardening, attending grandchildren’s baseball games and more. As you enjoy this new spring season, our dentists, Dr. David Barry, Dr. James Barry and Dr. Mark Barry, encourage you to also work towards a strong and healthy spring smile as a senior. By cating for your smile, you can better avoid any oral complications. To do so, we encourage you to do the following things:

-Visit our office: During your appointment, our dental team will inspect your smile to make sure your teeth, gums and underlying bone are in pristine shape. We will also clean your smile to help you prevent dental issues. If a problem is detected, our dentists can provide treatment as soon as possible to give you the healthy spring smile you want.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure to brush your teeth every morning and night. Be sure to also floss your teeth and rinse your mouth once a day. These daily habits can help you have the top-notch spring smile you’re looking for because they remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums, keeping your smile clean and pristine.

-Clean your appliances: If you use oral appliances, such as dentures, partial dentures and retainers, then you need to clean them regularly. This is important because they can harbor plaque that can promote dental issues when you wear your oral appliances. Be sure to clean your appliances often.
