3. Visit Your Dentist Regularly
As we age, the nerves between our teeth become smaller and less sensitive. This is why it’s important to see the dentist at least once a year, not just if you have pain. By the time you feel a cavity it might be too late and you could lose a tooth. Also, when you visit the dentist, bring a list of current medications, information about other health care providers, any allergies you may have, emergency contacts and insurance cards.
