Dr. Eric Shapira: Take care of your teeth and good health follows
from Half Moon Bay Review
Aging for all of us brings on change. Change is constant. Some of those changes create weaknesses in the function of our bodies' ability to fight infection. Therefore, it is so very important to maintain good oral health care as we age and develop good habits from an early age. Speaking of habits: Did you ever see a baby elephant tethered to a pole in the ground with a chain, rocking back and forth, to and fro? The elephant could not pull up that stake for anything. Now flash forward and see that older elephant tethered to that same, now small, stake in the ground. The elephant moves back and forth, to and fro "knowing" that he cannot lift out that stake. But we all know that he or she can. It's a matter of mindset. It is habit!
