5 Dental Dangers that Afflict Aging Teeth

dca-blog-171-Aging-Teeth_1200x630

Many people are surprised to learn that aging can take a toll on their teeth. Discover which risks emerge as you age and how to protect your dental health.

The Travails of Tooth Decay

Tooth decay can strike at any age, but years of poor dental care and gum disease can intensify your risk as you age. To protect aging teeth from tooth decay and the cavities it causes, follow these simple tips:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, preferably after meals
  • Use a decay-fighting toothpaste and mouth rinse
  • Floss daily
  • Get regular professional check-ups and cleanings from a trusted dental clinic

The Angst of Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the greatest risks for aging teeth. The condition develops when tooth decay infects the gums and starts to harm the gum tissue and bone. Luckily, the problem can be treated by a dental care specialist, especially if it is caught early. If you notice that your gums are suddenly red, swollen, or bleed easily, make a dental clinic appointment immediately to avoid any permanent dental damage.

The Scourge of Dry Mouth

The saliva your mouth produces actually helps protect your teeth from plaque and tooth decay. In addition to naturally making less saliva as you age, certain medical conditions and medications can contribute to a dry mouth. This can make it more difficult to speak, eat, and swallow. If you suffer from dry mouth, talk to your dentist about ways to ease the dryness and ask your doctor about the possibility of changing medications.

The Increase of Risk for Oral Cancer

According to medical experts, adults over age 40 have a higher risk for oral cancer. Because treatment is most effective when the problem is caught early, be sure that your dentist regularly checks your mouth for signs of oral cancer. Ask for an oral cancer examination whenever you visit your dental clinic for a check-up and cleaning.

The Case to be Made for Dentures

Dentures are worn by millions of older adults who want to enhance their appearance, confidence, and comfort as they age. See, dentures replace missing or poorly-shaped teeth to improve the function and look of your smile. But since the aging process naturally changes the shape of your mouth, your dentures will need to be periodically adjusted or remade by your dental clinic to ensure they suit your smile. Remember to treat your dentures as well as you would your natural teeth by practicing proper dental care.
