Florida dental care, My teeth are greying around the gumline?

Posted on Thursday, Dec. 23rd 2010 9:11 AM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Care 3 Comments »

I am 71 and I have been noticing that my teeth seem to be getting darker along my gum line.  It not like this happen over night but I may just be paying more attention to it.  I notice in a photo take of me not too long ago that my teeth seem so dark so I think that way I am starting to see my teeth color.  Is this do to age?  I see a dentist once a year since that all I can really afford to see one.   My dentist is costly and seems to go up in cost every year I see him.  Guess I am looking for advise on why my teeth may be getting darker.

    Teeth color can change due to age but I think it is still a good idea to see your dentist to make sure there is not another reason for the color change. I know it can be costly seeing a dentist but it is more costly having to have dental work done. So better safe now then sorry latter.

    It sounds like to me you do not have any dental insurance if you are paying for your oral check up and cleanings. Many dental insurance plan offer free preventive care. Not only that but then you would be able to see the dentist the remended two times a year instead of just once.

    In FL this web site offer dental insurance plans from HMO to PPOs and Indemity dental insurance plans as will as low cost dental discount plans. May I suggest that you reveiw some of these dental plans to see if they can help you with your dental cost.

    Aging can effect your teeth and gums just how much can depend on how well you took care of your oral health over the prior years.

    However even if you were good about brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist twice a year for your oral health check ups, you may still notice a few signs of aging such as:

    1) Drier mouth
    2) Receding gums
    3) Teeth getting slightly darker.
    4) Teeth Becoming more brittle and easier to chip or break.

    These are just a few signs however it is important to see your dentist as you age more offen and not less. A dry mouth can lead to higher risk of cavities. Brittle teeth means a high risk of teeth braking and chipping. Seeing a dentist at least twice a year will help lower these risks.

    That all said I agree with the last reply that if you do not have dental insurance in order to make your dental care more affordable it is a good time to start thinking about getting some.
