Question No. 1: Do I still get cavities now that I’m older?
Unfortunately, tooth decay doesn’t care about the age of the smile. It tends to attack everyone’s teeth, even adults’. Fortunately, there are things you can do on a regular basis to keep tooth decay at bay, and those things are: keep up on oral hygiene, visit your dentist every six months, and have a smile-healthy diet.

Question No. 2: Can I get braces as an adult?
You are more than welcome to align your smile as an adult! In fact, more and more adults are beginning their orthodontic journeys each day. There are also more orthodontic treatment options that can help you align your smile more comfortably. So, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.

Question No. 3: What does smoking do to my smile and oral health?
Smoking is a villain to your smile. It causes many issues, like tooth discoloration, irritated gums, and dry mouth, which can result in bad breath and cavities. It can also increase your risk of falling victim to gum disease and oral cancer. So, if you’re smart, you would quit or stay away from smoking as much as possible.
