As you get older, you want to keep your body – including your smile – in great shape. It’s important all year round. But September has been designated Healthy Aging Month. So it’s a good time to remind you that we’d love to help you with your smile’s changing needs.

As seen in this short video from the American Dental Association, changes that can affect your teeth and gums include dry mouth, discolored teeth enamel, and receding gums. Because of this, regular cleanings and exams are more important than ever. They let us monitor your mouth for changes that require treatment to keep your smile in top shape. 

We recommend visiting us at least once every six months – and more often if you are vulnerable to gum disease. If you need to schedule an appointment in Kalamazoo, MI, call Briarwood Valley Dentistry today at 269-349-3203
