As our bodies age, it may seem like a lot of things are changing. We aren’t as young and spry as we once were, and our bodies seem to be screaming that to us at times. While it may seem that everything else is becoming weary, our teeth can remain strong and our oral health can still be superb in old age. Although simple tasks such as brushing our teeth or flossing may become harder to perform, there are some ways that you can still maintain good oral hygiene with minimal effort. Next time you find it hard to do the simple dental tasks, try out these tricks:

  • Use electric or ergonomic-handled toothbrushes for minimal movement while brushing and to get in those hard-to-reach places.
  • Try flossing with dispensable flossers, or use a floss holder to avoid wrapping floss around your fingers and sticking your hand in your mouth.
  • Use a toothpaste dispenser to easily hold and extract your toothpaste without a hassle.

If you or a loved one are facing dental care challenges, we invite you to call or visit one of our offices today and discuss your concerns with our caring team. Our dentist can help you continue to care for your smile.
