Is Tooth Decay Just For Children?

Some people may think that tooth decay is just for children, but did you know you are at risk your whole life?  Medical conditions, certain medications, diet and poor dental hygiene can contribute to decay for adults.  According to the American Dental Association, “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 ADA also says that there is good news - dental disease is preventable. Always remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss between teeth at least once a day, eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. And don't forget to schedule regular dental visits. Early detection of decay and gum disease means easier and less costly treatment. By following a healthy dental routine and making smart food choices, you can lower your risk for tooth decay. A healthy mouth is important and contributes to the overall health of your body.
