Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent gum disease in seniors. To maintain proper dental health, it’s important that you brush and floss every day or when your teeth feel like they need an extra cleaning session!
- Floss, Brush, Mouthwash
Floss, then brush with a superior toothpaste like CloSYS Silver. Do not rinse with water. Swish and rinse with a ph balanced mouthwash like CloSYS silver mouthwash.
- See Your Dentist
See your dentist every 6 months or more often if you have bleeding gums per your dentist’s suggestion.
- No Smoking
Do not smoke. Smoking stains your teeth. More importantly, it breaks down the ligaments around the teeth, causing periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss.
- Less Sugar
Think about brushing your teeth if you have the bad habit of eating in bed. Sugar and food laying on your teeth will cause cavities in a short amount of time.
- Drink Lots of Water
Keep your mouth well hydrated. Drink a lot of water and use AllDay dry mouth gel if dry mouth persists.
