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.

    Gingivitis usually develops as a result of poor oral hygiene. Plaque accumulates on your teeth, and this plaque is rich in harmful bacteria. The bacteria then begin to affect your gums, causing irritation and inflammation.
