It is a myth that it is normal for us to lose our teeth as we age and that most older adults need dentures.

You can maintain a healthy smile and your natural teeth for life by caring for your teeth and gums as you get older.

It’s especially important to take care of your teeth and gums if you have a health condition like diabetes or heart disease, or if you’re taking medicines that can cause dry mouth.

Daily dental care and dental visits can help protect your oral and overall health. It can also prevent painful and costly emergencies. Click on the video and the images below to help you with your daily oral hygiene for a healthy smile. Video available in Spanish and Vietnamese.
