Everyone has had a slushie before, especially in the sweltering summer. They can be really refreshing, but horrible for your teeth. Most patients recall having a sticky, grimy film sit on top of their teeth soon after slurping on their favorite cherry flavored treat. That film is a mixture of sugar, acid, dental bacteria, and plaque. If you’re not proactive in removing these harmful materials, you risk developing tooth decay. Tooth decay can lead to cavities, or painful holes in your smile. Luckily, your Park Slope dentist is here to help you prevent, detect, and treat cavities if you ever face tooth decay.

As we get older, there are certain health concerns that require our full attention. Oral health for seniors is one of them. In our lifetime, we only get one set of permanent adult teeth, so it’s crucial to take care of them throughout our lives. About 25 percent of adults over the age of 60 and older no longer have any natural teeth. Issues such as gum disease or other general health concerns may contribute to tooth loss. Although aging is unavoidable, if you’re suffering from tooth loss before the age of 70, you may be aging at an accelerated rate. Your Park Slope dentist wants you to know the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums as you get older. That’s why he offers these tips to help make your dental care as effective as possible.
