Did you know that your oral health is linked to your overall body health? Well, it’s true! Too often people put off going to the dentist and risk suffering from serious oral health problems. That is why our team here at Richard G. Goble, DDS in Fallbrook, California, is happy to talk about the importance of oral health and provide you with tips to keep your oral health in wonderful health.

Some conditions associated with aging and dental oral hygiene neglect include:

· Root and coronal caries
· Dry mouth
· Sensitivity to medications
· Periodontitis

If you have poor dental habits, you can be at higher risk of these conditions, and other severe conditions occur such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss, which could also lead to bone loss over time. That is why taking care of your oral health is vital each and every day. Easy tips to help keep your smile in classic shape include:

· Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months
· Visit your dentist once every six months
· Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day
· Floss daily
