What You Should Know About Seniors’ Dental Health:
Now is the time of life that dental health is the most important. Even minor dental problems can effect your overall health. Cavities and decay on the root surfaces of the teeth are more common in older adults. It’s important to brush with a fluoride toothpaste, floss daily and see the dentist regularly.
Tooth sensitivity can be an increasing problem as we age. Some tooth sensitivity can be a indication of a more serious condition, such as a cavity or a cracked or fractured tooth.
Dry mouth is also a common problem as we age. It can be caused by medications, certain medical conditions, or disorders. If left untreated, it can damage your teeth.
Health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, can affect your oral health. You need to let your dentist know of health issues that you have so he can understand the entire situation and help you with your special requirements.
If you have dentures, you know they require special care. See your dentist if problems arise and an annual checkup is recommended for long-term denture wearers.
It’s the best time of your life …make it a healthy one!
