Caring for your oral health is an important part of maintaining good overall health and well-being. Dental disease is largely preventable - by practising a daily dental care routine (brushing and flossing), eating a balanced diet, avoiding smoking and visiting your dentist regularly for an examintion. Even if you have no noticable symptoms it is important to have regular exams to diagnose and treat disease early and avoid more complex and costly treatment.

Many adults are keeping most, if not all, of their natural teeth for a lifetime. Your natural teeth require ongoing care and attention to maintain good dental health. For older adults, arthritis and dementia can make caring for their teeth a challenge. It is important for family members and caregivers to support their care; dental decay can progress rapidly among aging adults.
