Aging is an inescapable fact of life. While some of the challenges that come with it cannot be avoided, others can. At Vaca and Kirby in Longview, we help patients of all ages with their dental health issues.
Many dental problems that are common with aging include missing teeth, gum recession, tooth damage, and yellowed enamel. In most cases, these issues can be remedied.
Some people think losing their teeth as they age is inevitable. It isn’t. With a proper dental health routine at home and regular cleanings and checkups in our office (just like you’ve always done, we hope) your teeth can last a lifetime.
Still, you should know that the mouth undergoes changes as we age. The nerves in teeth may get smaller, to the point where teeth are not as sensitive to cavities and other issues. That means you may not feel as much tooth pain from, for example, a cavity as you once did. Regular checkups become that much more important.
At Vaca and Kirby in Longview, we see patients from Gladewater, Hallsville, and New Diana for cleanings and checkups twice a year. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Dental health is important at every stage of life! Schedule your next appointment with us today!
