How Aging Affects Your Oral Health

No one stays young forever, but you can keep yourself feeling healthy and young by taking care of your oral health. Watch this video to find out how aging affects your oral health.

Among those who lose their teeth as they age, many people choose to receive dentures as a primary treatment. However, dentures may make it difficult to eat foods that bolster your overall health. Instead, they choose to eat processed food that is high in cholesterol and saturated fat due to its softer texture. Protect yourself from the cancer and heart disease that these foods can cause by balancing your diet with fruits and vegetables; try cutting them into bite-sized pieces or considering an alternative to dentures.
