Keeping your mouth young
Partly because of medication combined with getting older, senior patients are susceptible to various oral health issues. This can include dry mouth, which leaves teeth more vulnerable to the development of tooth decay and gum disease. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Many of the patients who visit John Street Dental are older and enjoy a healthy mouth and full smile. Oral health products, such as gels, toothpastes and mouth-rinses can effectively minimise dental diseases.
Another contributing factor is that as we age, we can experience a reduction in dexterity and eyesight which can make flossing more difficult and less effective. Large handled-toothbrushes and pre-strung dental flossers can make your oral hygiene routine a little easier.
Today there are numerous preventive and restorative oral health solutions available from John Street Dental. We invite you to schedule an appointment with our team for a comprehensive check-up.
We are located at 116 John St, Redcliffe QLD 4020. For appointments, please call us on (07) 3284 2244.
