No matter your age, dental health care is important to maintain. Our Goldsboro area family dentists can help you keep your natural teeth healthy for a lifetime. Here are a few tips for caring for your teeth at every life stage.

Childhood: Schedule your child’s first dental visit around their first birthday. Developing good oral hygiene habits early in life is key to maintaining dental health.

Adolescence: Most adolescents know to brush daily, but many neglect to floss. With the abundance of sugary drinks and snacks available during the teen years, keeping up a good daily hygiene habit will save your teeth from decay.

Adulthood: Many adults operate under the false assumptions that if their teeth aren’t bothering them, then they don’t need to see a dentist. Don’t make this mistake. Regular checkups and professional cleanings will keep your teeth healthy and allow for early detection and treatment of tooth decay before it becomes a major health problem.

Senior Years: Later in life, you may have to deal with issues such as dry mouth or tooth loss if you haven’t taken care of your teeth earlier in life. Our family dentists can help you understand your options for tooth restoration so that you can smile confidently in your later years.
