Too often, teeth will age right along with the rest of the body, but this is not inevitable. You can help your smile remain immune to the years with the use of proper oral care. We are happy to help you develop effective dental care to prevent the effects of aging on your teeth over the course of your lifetime.

Many patients are not aware of the link between teeth and a healthy diet, which helps to maintain the balance between the good and bad bacteria in your mouth. When you eat unhealthy food, this throws off the balance by producing more bad bacteria that increases plaque buildup and can lead to other harmful dental concerns, including cavities and gum disease.

We urge you to address any poor dental habits that cause them to become worn down and lose their tooth enamel. Without the protective layer covering your teeth, you could be at a heightened risk of tooth decay and gum disease. These issues can inevitably lead to many other oral and general health concerns.

Speak with our dentist about the possibility of your prescription medications resulting in oral problems. Your doctor can work with the dentist to tailor your prescription to both your oral and general health to ensure that your overall wellbeing remains in good shape for many years.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Frantz Backer and our team at 718-313-9987 if you would like to visit Advanced Dentistry of New York to discuss oral hygiene in Jackson Heights, New York.
