How to Manage Age-Related Dental Issues

Today, people enjoy the privilege of longer life spans compared to past generations. This also means that a large chunk of the population will inevitably feel the aches, pains, and disintegration that commonly accompany aging – and that includes the state of your teeth.

It’s not just natural aging that can cause your smile to wilt or lead to problems like yellow or stained teeth, chipped or broken teeth, sensitivity to hot and cold, dry mouth, tooth loss, and receding gums. Age-related illnesses can affect the health of your teeth and gums – often, changes in your teeth and gums may be indicative of undiagnosed afflictions or diseases. Medications taken for existing conditions or health issues can also lead to problems with your teeth.

While your smile may be the last of your worries when you’re managing other health concerns, the well-being of your teeth and gums are just as important as any other part of your body. Dental complications can seriously affect your overall health and negatively impact your emotional and mental outlooks on life.

At Smile Texas, we don’t just use cosmetic dentistry to create stunning white smiles; we treat you from start to finish so that you leave with a new and healthy grin. We clean up decay, infection, and disrepair to give you a solid foundation for your new dental implants, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns.

And if the idea of too much dental work doesn’t sit comfortably with you, learn about our sedation dentistry options – the easy way to receive a lot of dental treatment in a small amount of time, with little to no pain or discomfort.
