Healthy Aging magazine has chosen September as Healthy Aging Month®. This is a time to focus on the positive aspects on growing older. As one of the healthiest communities in the country, healthy aging is a part of everyday life for people over 45 in Cherry Creek, and all around the Denver area. While eating right and getting plenty of outdoor activity is central to the lifestyle of the Front Range, it can be easy to overlook the importance of good dental hygiene and regular visits to your dentist.
Oral Health Tips
Many people don’t realize how closely their oral health and their total wellbeing are connected. Good oral health can have an impact on virtually every other area of your body. As people live longer, general dentistry has improved to help keep your natural teeth well into your later years. Good oral hygiene is still simple:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day
- Floss daily
- Visit the dentist for routine cleanings and exams
By following these simple steps, you can prevent common dental problems from occurring, including gum disease, tooth loss, and staining, to ensure a lifetime of great meals and healthy living. If you live in or around the Cherry Creek area or elsewhere in Denver please call DeWitt Dental Associates at (303) 566-4036 today to schedule a consultation.
