Even though the last of your adult teeth grow in during your teen years, your teeth can efficiently serve for many decades if you take care of them correctly. In fact, it is possible that your teeth can last as long as you do if you take the necessary steps to live a healthy life, eat healthy foods, and visit your dentist for routine checkups and professional cleanings.

In situations where your oral health care is lacking, your teeth may weaken over time and require tooth replacement restorations. However as long as you’re taking care of your teeth and keeping your tooth enamel strong, your teeth can fully function for the rest of your life. By brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day, you can keep your smile healthy.  Always make sure you are brushing your teeth with brushes that have soft bristles and toothpaste that is not abrasive. Also, always clean between your teeth with a strong, shred-resistant dental floss or a water flosser.

If you require additional help with your oral health care, or if you have suffered any dental damage and oral accidents or injuries, be sure to visit your dentist for a tooth restoration or repair. In addition, you can strengthen your smile by improving your diet. This includes avoiding hard or tough products that can easily chip or crack your teeth, and avoid sticky or chewy sweets that can contribute to dental erosion. Furthermore, improve your lifestyle by eliminating unhealthy habits from your life. This includes getting rid of any products that can damage your own physical health, such as smoking or chewing tobacco or drinking heavy alcohol.
