As we age, our gums begin to shrink and separate from our teeth, putting us more at risk for disease and root decay.
Just the natural wear and tear on the protective enamel covering of the teeth diminishes it’s strength.

Years ago, it was not uncommon to see an older person with one or more missing teeth, since extraction was often the only way to deal with tooth decay. The modern technology used at Centennial dental has changed that, but the longer we have our own teeth, the higher the chance that problems will occur.
