Aging is simply a fact of life for all of us. And the aging process can do a number on your teeth. Fortunately, Dr. Pamela Marzban, a dentist who has been helping the people of the Fairfax area for years, can help mitigate the effects of aging on your teeth.
Of aging’s many effects on our teeth, one of the most common and notable is a loss of tooth enamel.
Your enamel is the hardest part of your body, and it protects the softer, more sensitive interior of your teeth. Losing it is a difficult proposition.
If you suffer from severe enamel erosion, our dentist can use a dental crown to protect your teeth.
Perhaps the most serious consequence of aging is tooth loss. Losing a tooth puts you at risk for:
- More tooth loss
- Bone degeneration
- Gum disease
If you’ve lost a tooth, our dentist can use a sturdy, long-lasting dental implant as its replacement.
For those who have lost a row or more of teeth, our dentist might recommend dentures to replace them.
Dr. Marzban has experience helping patients of all ages and dental health. She can help you keep your teeth sound as you grow older.
