September is Healthy Aging Month, which is a good time to point out that we care for all smiles at Jia Y. Lee, DDS, including older smiles. 

This article offers some tips to maintain a healthier lifestyle as you get older. Visiting the dentist isn’t on the list, but it should be! Taking good care of your mouth lessens your risk for conditions associated with dental problems, like diabetes and heart disease. It also helps you feel better about yourself. 

As you age, your smile needs will change. As you’ll see in this American Dental Association video, you may be dealing with issues like dry mouth, dull-looking teeth enamel, and receding gums. Regular exams and cleanings are more important than ever, so we can monitor changes that may need attention. 

We offer many helpful solutions in our Rancho Cucamonga, CA office to keep your teeth and gums in top shape. From dental exams to dental implants, you’ll find treatments to improve your oral health – and your overall health too.
