What Leads to the Look of Aging Teeth?

No matter how hard you try to hide your age, your teeth can be a telltale sign of your years. Learn how to look younger than your real age by keeping your smile healthy.

Culprit Number One: Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the greatest risks for aging teeth. See, bacteria in the mouth can cause gum recession, which exposes more of the tooth’s root. That’s how the saying about seniors being “long in the tooth” originated. In addition, gum disease can threaten the strength of the tooth’s bone and lead to tooth loss. But it’s never too late to get serious about protecting yourself from gum disease by practicing good oral hygiene and seeing your family dentist twice a year.

Culprit Number Two: Wear And Tear

No matter how diligent you’ve been about dental care, years of eating, drinking, and everyday activities take a toll on your teeth. Plus, many of us unknowingly brush too hard and forget to floss, which can contribute to dental issues. Going forward, try to brush gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss at least once a day, and see your family dentist in Englewood for regular check-ups and cleanings.

Culprit Number Three: Dry Mouth

A moist mouth naturally keeps teeth clean by rinsing away plaque and particles that collect on the teeth. But as people age, we tend to produce less saliva due to certain medications, illnesses, and the aging process in general. This causes a condition called dry mouth, which can lead to many dental care problems and the appearance of aging teeth since saliva is no longer washing away bacteria. To ease this issue, try to stay hydrated, brush after meals, and floss daily to prevent plaque from building up on your teeth.

Culprit Number Four: Acid

Many people don’t realize that a lot of the foods and beverages they enjoy contain harsh acids that eat away at their tooth enamel. This leads to enamel erosion and yellowish stains that can make teeth appear darker and make you look older. Dental care experts recommend you limit your intake of acidic foods and beverages like citrus fruits, sodas, and wine. On occasions when you do have them, you should wait thirty minutes before brushing your teeth so as to avoid brushing away your enamel. Also, try using special toothpastes designed to strengthen enamel and guard against damage from acid.
