Give your teeth the attention they need

Paying attention to your oral health can play a major role in helping you to stay and look healthy as you age. Avoid neglecting your teeth as you age and ensure that you keep up with your cleansing and flossing routine.

Don’t miss dental appointments and chat to your dentist if you find that your teeth or gums are feeling sensitive. Be open to changing to other types of toothbrushes and toothpastes. Ask your dentist about the pros and cons of teeth whitening and discuss whether it may be a necessary option for you.
