Aging is an unavoidable fact of life. While some of the challenges that come with it cannot be avoided, others can. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we help patients of all ages with their dental health issues.
Many dental problems that are common with aging include missing teeth, gum recession, tooth damage, and yellowed enamel. In most cases, these issues can be remedied.
Some people think losing their teeth as they age is inevitable. It isn’t. With a proper dental health routine at home and regular cleanings and checkups in our office (just like you’ve always done, we hope) your teeth can last a lifetime.
But the mouth undergoes changes as we age. The nerves in teeth may get smaller, to the point where teeth are not as sensitive to cavities and other issues. That means you may not feel as much tooth pain from, for example, a cavity as you once did. Regular checkups become that much more important.
At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we want to see all our patients in for a cleaning and checkup twice a year. Dental health is important, no matter your age! Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, and we’ve got an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
