Right now you are older than you’ve ever been before. You’re aging as you read this, and if you’re like most of the population, you’re concerned about how you look and you want to appear as young as you can to keep that edge.
One of the biggest keys to looking younger is a beautiful smile, and there are a few things you can do besides the usual brushing and flossing to keep your smile looking fresh and young.
If you can’t brush after every meal or drink, at least rinse your mouth out. That helps take away staining pigments before they can sink in and helps prevent tooth decay by ridding your mouth of food particles. When you floss, make sure to floss down to the gum between your teeth.
We produce less saliva as we get older, and that means less protection for our teeth. Chewing sugarless gum stimulates salivary glands.
If you have old fillings, have them checked by a dentist. Eventually, fillings need to be replaced. Also if your teeth have repositioned themselves, consider Invisalign or other options to straighten your smile. You’ll look younger in no time!
