Gracefully Greying Dental
This past week, my guest on Gracefully Greying was Robert Gittleman, an attorney who specializes in dental malpractice. He provided a lot of important information regarding our teeth and mouths as we are gracefully greying.
A recent issue of the AARP Bulletin brings out the importance of seeing a dentist. Seeing a dentist two or more times a year may lower your risk of mortality from all causes by 30 to 50 percent. The same study from the Journal of Aging Research states that non-flossers had a 30 percent higher death risk than daily flossers.
Poor oral hygiene has been linked to elevated C-reactive protein inflammation levels.
My takeaway is to take care of your teeth and gums and see a dentist at least twice a year.
