As you get older, maintaining your oral health becomes more important. Your risk for oral health problems increases. Even so, you can keep your mouth healthy — and your smile intact — by practicing good, preventive care.

You still need to brush and floss your teeth daily. You should still get routine dental cleanings and exams, which we offer at our dentist office in Reading, MA. But you also want to be aware of the side effects of any medications you are taking. Some medicines can cause dry mouth, which can increase your risk of gum disease or tooth loss.

If you would like to schedule your next dental cleaning, call 781-435-7290 to reach First Dental Associates. You also can make an appointment online.
