How Your Smile Changes With Age | Iconic Orthodontist

Orthodontist in Grant Park

As time passes, our smiles undergo natural changes influenced by aging and the effects of daily wear and tear. At Iconic Orthodontics, our Iconic Orthodontist emphasizes the importance of understanding these changes and maintaining optimal oral health throughout every stage of life.

Change #1: Natural Wear and Tear

Despite their resilience, teeth are subject to wear and tear over time. Enamel, the protective outer layer of teeth, gradually erodes with decades of use, leaving the underlying dentin vulnerable to damage. Additionally, diminishing nerve sensitivity can mask potential issues, allowing problems to go unnoticed.

To combat wear and tear, prioritize consistent brushing and flossing habits, regardless of age. Our dental team can recommend professional electric toothbrushes with soft bristles to effectively clean your teeth. Regular dental appointments and adherence to recommended oral hygiene practices help maintain enamel strength and minimize damage caused by wear and tear.

Change #2: Teeth Shifting

As jawbones weaken with age, teeth may shift position, leading to various issues such as crowding or spacing. This shift can also result from periodontal disease, which causes gum recession. Orthodontic solutions such as braces or Invisalign are effective in correcting teeth misalignment. For cases related to periodontal disease, a comprehensive treatment plan including periodontal care may be recommended.

Change #3: Oral Cancer

While oral cancer can affect individuals of any age, it’s more prevalent among older adults. Routine dental examinations include thorough oral cancer screenings to detect any abnormalities early. Symptoms of oral cancer may include sores, white patches, or changes in gum or mouth tissue color. Early detection significantly improves treatment outcomes.
