Can we Keep our Original Teeth Forever

Posted on 4/10/2018 by Jolie
Original Teeth B.J. Myers DDS & Associates TX 78759-6051Since we only get one set of teeth, it's important for us to take good care of them. According to science and research, when we do so we can keep our original teeth forever.

It's important to adopt a "preventive" mindset than a "drill, fill, bill" mindset to make this work.

How to Keep Your Original Teeth Forever

Maintaining good oral hygiene is important. This includes flossing, using mouthwash, and brushing your teeth with an electric toothbrush. Although you can use a regular toothbrush, if you're like 99% of people you don't know how to brush your teeth properly with it and you don't brush for a complete two minutes either.

With an electric toothbrush you never have to worry about any of these things. Your toothbrush makes sure you brush for long enough so you don't develop plaque buildup, swollen gums, or cavities.

You also need to take time to choose the right products. This depends on if you're cavity-prone, have sensitive teeth, bad gums, or teeth that stain. Additionally, your children need to get fluoride treatments until they're at least 15-years-old.

Everyone in your family needs to watch what they eat too - no hard or excessively sugary or acidic foods. When you do have one of these types of foods do your best to eat some cheese with it so you balance out the acidity in your mouth. This is important because too much acid is what causes a lot of dental health issues.

Make sure you also visit with us for regular dental checkups at least twice a year. When we can identify problems with your teeth early on, we can usually fix them instead of pulling your teeth. Once we fill cavities, insert crowns, or do any other dental restorative work we can also make sure that they're properly taken care of.
