There are plenty of perks to becoming older, but age is also accompanied by aches, pains, and sometimes oral health problems. Baby boomers are finding out that being healthy and living longer means plenty more opportunity for dental issues to arise.
Even if you’ve been the perfect patient, dutifully visiting your dentist every six months for cleanings and exams, your teeth and gums can still begin to show wear and tear. Age-related dental issues are far from unexpected. It’s normal to experience things like tooth loss, yellow or stained teeth, receding gums, dry mouth, and broken or chipped teeth.
