You Can Maintain Healthy Teeth and Gums for a Lifetime

dca-blog_dentures-rose

One of the greatest myths of modern times is the notion that with age, comes tooth loss. This error in thinking, as stated by Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), stems from the high incidence of oral disease that strikes a majority of Americans between the ages of 35 and 44 and remains the leading cause of tooth loss among elderly adults. Your smile does not have to wither and fade with each passing year. Achieving and maintaining healthy teeth and gums is simple with basic dental care habits and routine visits to your family dentistry expert—for your entire life.

The key factor destroying oral health among the aging population is missed visits to the dentist. Those bi-annual trips to the family dentistry office are as crucial to your long-term oral health as brushing and flossing, yet as people age, their visits to the dentist begin to decline. Among senior citizens, the gap between dental visits is often extensive. A spokesperson for the AGD says that part of the problem is attitude; many older adults are not in the public eye very often and feel dental care isn’t an important aspect of their health.

Unfortunately, older adults often suffer the greatest complications that require professional dental care, such as medications that cause dry mouth or the use of dentures, which can be a breeding ground for bacteria and debris without proper care.

Individuals who care for senior family members should encourage routine visits to a dentist and even help remind seniors of proper daily dental care habits. Many seniors may need assistance finding an affordable dentist and one who recognizes their special needs. Their dentist should recognize the need to know and understand what medications older adults are taking that might affect dental care. Special rinses to treat dry mouth and additional education regarding dentures or dental implants can be helpful for aging patients.

Older adults should also be mindful of their diet. Sugary and starchy snacks and meals can quickly lead to tooth decay. Foods that are very sticky or too crunchy can cause issues for seniors with dentures or damaged teeth.

Many aspects of dental care are the same for seniors as any other member of the population; however, with age often comes disinterest in appearance, leaving important habits to fall by the wayside. Help protect the oral health of the older adults in your life—emphasize daily dental care and assist with routine visits to the family dentistry office.
