Concern for Adults Under 40

Adults between 25-40 years are those undergoing a transition from their carefree dreamy days to those of responsibility and accountability. This is the age when mostly people start their families,settle into jobs,plan babies,and a secure future.

Amidst all this newfound pressure, people become extremely negligent about their health.Specially oral health.

Some people think tooth decay is just for children, but did you know you are at risk your whole life? Untreated dental disease can lead to serious health problems such as infection, damage to bone or nerve and tooth loss. Dental infections that are left untreated can even spread to other parts of the body and, in very rare cases, can be life threatening.

The good news is that dental disease is preventable.

You can practice preventive dentistry on yourself by adopting these healthy habits:

The IDA recommends that:

You should always remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss between teeth once a day, eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. And don't forget to schedule regular dental visits. By following a healthy dental routine and making smart food choices, you can lower your risk for tooth decay.

Remember,your youth will not last forever,but if you take care of yourself today,getting older wont be so bad either!

Visit your dentist for a happy and healthy smile.
