Tried-and-true brushing and flossing can help you hold on to your good looks longer

Your mouth is more than just a pretty smile. It's also a gateway to your overall health. Keeping that gateway clean may keep you healthier longer -- and looking younger.
"Just as white, straight teeth convey youth, a smile with crooked, discolored, worn, or missing teeth is associated with an aged look," says Edmond Hewlett, DDS, professor of restorative dentistry at UCLA's School of Dentistry. "The adage 'long in the tooth,' used to describe older persons, reflects the fact that gum disease causes gums to recede and teeth to appear longer as a result."
Keeping a youthful mouth comes down to two simple, proven, and practical steps:

  • Brush and floss daily
  • See your dentist every six months
