A few things are equally important for your oral health no matter your age or stage of life. Good nutrition, brushing and flossing habits, visiting the dentist and a little fluoride are always (always) the essentials. And you won’t ever hear us say otherwise.
However, your dental hygiene routine requires unique considerations at each new season of growth and maturity. Read below as the office of Holly R. Lane, DDS shares what is especially important to know for your oral health throughout your life. You may be surprised at what we have to share!
From the moment your child enters the world, they are equipped with not one, but two sets of teeth to last their lifetime—even if you can’t quite see said teeth yet. Oral health and dental care are as important now as ever. Don’t wait to start good habits that will ensure a healthy, functioning smile for your newest family member.
Though it can be overwhelming to stay on top of your child’s oral hygiene, kids have all the same dental needs as adults. Now is the impressionable age when good habits will really set in for the rest of their life.
No one is around anymore to remind you to brush your teeth or force/drive you to the dentist. And lots of your favorite vices in this age can wreak havoc on your teeth (the last set you’ll get!). Your teeth and mouth will serve you forever if you continue to prioritize your dental hygiene amongst everything else going on in life.
The golden years should be about celebration and gratitude for all you’ve seen and done. Make dental care a joyful ritual and stay on top of your dentist visits as things just tend to get complicated with our own health as we age.
