Losing your teeth is NOT INEVITABLE!

Many people still think that losing your teeth is something that “just happens” when you get older.  But it really doesn’t have to be that way.

Modern dentistry and preventive techniques mean your teeth can last a lifetime – and for most people this is becoming a reality.  The Adult Dental Health Survey monitors the nation’s teeth: it shows that the number of UK adults who have no teeth fell from 37% in 1968 to just 6% in 2009.

So:

  • Brush twice a day
  • Use fluoride
  • Cut down on sugary food
  • Reduce your intake of fizzy drinks
  • Visit your dentist and hygienist regularly

Then you’ll be smiling for years to come.

Oh, and be careful when walking the dog…
