Ageing affects our oral health. Like the body, teeth suffer from wear and changes. Enamel thins and the inner layer of the tooth thickens so teeth appear darker.
– See your dentist if you grind your teeth as this speeds up enamel erosion and tooth damage.
– Keep hydrated if you take medication as certain medications dry the mouth.
– Be aware that tea, coffee and wine can stain teeth.
Your dentist can assist with teeth whitening and provide help with teeth-grinding. Your dentist can also identify and treat any cavities or gum issues.
