Keeping your teeth young

As we get older suddenly we realised many things we didn't appreciate about being young - being fit, having smooth skin and having all your own teeth. As our loose teeth (and bridges) struggle to deal with chewier food we start eating bland mush and, there is no easy way to say this, OLD PEOPLE FOOD. I'm determined not to let that happen to me and I'm doing everything I can to keep my own teeth as long as possible, and when that's not possible to get the best possible teeth replacement. If you are like me and want to keep on eating whatever you want, I think you'll like my site. It's all about dental health and teeth replacement & maintenance.

    If a row of teeth was a mountain range, your molars would be the Everests and Aconcaguas of the bunch. Molars are the strongest teeth in your mouth. They need to be, because it is with them that you crush and grind your food so that it is easier to swallow and digest. Your molars also help to support your cheeks.

    If you have multiple missing teeth and are looking for a cost-efficient alternative to replacing them, then dentures make a good option for you. Dentures can restore your chewing capacity, and they help in preventing any speech impediments that may come about due to the missing teeth.
