Dental Care for Seniors- A Primer for Your Prime Years

dca-blog_gum-disease-seniors-uncomfortable-man

Human teeth are strong, and they’re meant to last throughout your entire life. Unfortunately, the passage of years can bring changes that compromise your oral health. By itself, your age doesn’t dictate the condition of your teeth and gums; any person of any age can suffer from dental disease. Although challenges may arise, your dentist can help you counteract them, and keep your natural smile intact throughout your golden years. Practicing good oral hygiene, seeing your dentist regularly, and being aware of risk factors can help you detect dental problems early and avert negative outcomes.

8 Common Dental Care Challenges

If you have any of the following signs and symptoms, discuss treatment options with your dentist in Tampa and find out the latest on dental care for seniors.

  1. Gum disease, including gingivitis and advanced periodontitis, are common in seniors. They are caused by a buildup of bacteria-laden dental plaque.
  2. Tooth loss is common in seniors and is usually related to advanced periodontal disease.
  3. Dry mouth is caused by reduced saliva flow, which may be related to certain diseases, prescription drugs, and cancer treatments.
  4. Denture-caused stomatitis is an inflammation of tissues underneath a denture. Yeast overgrowth and ill-fitting dentures are possible causes.
  5. Decay of the tooth’s root occurs when gum tissues recede and expose the roots. Because they are porous and have no protective enamel layer, roots are more vulnerable to decay.
  6. A diminished sense of taste can be caused by medications, dentures, and aging.
  7. An uneven jawbone may develop over time if missing teeth are not replaced.
  8. Darkened teeth are often the result of stains or changes in the tooth’s dentin, which is the naturally yellow-colored tissue that lies beneath enamel.

Hygiene Tips for Healthy Smiles

To avoid gingivitis, periodontitis, root decay, and other preventable problems, practice good oral hygiene consistently. Brush your teeth at least twice every day, floss between teeth once a day, and visit your dentist on a regular basis for early detection and treatment of developing oral health problems.
