Williams & Sivie Discuss Healthy Aging for Your Teeth?

Williams & Sivie, DDS
(972) 596-9697
September is Healthy Aging Month and dental care providers are joining this month’s campaign to create awareness on keeping teeth vibrant, young and healthy in their community.  According to the American Heart Association, “32 million Americans are taking three or more medications daily,” and while these medications aid in overall health they could be a concern for your oral health.  Certain medications can reduce the amount of saliva produced, causing dryness in the mouth and creating an environment for harmful bacteria that can lead to decay or gum disease.  A significant reduction in saliva can cause symptoms like burning sensations, fungal and bacteria growth, and recession of the gum tissue. Routine dental exams and keeping your dentist up-to-date on your medical prescriptions and treatments will give you a proactive approach to healthy aging for your smile.
