We implemented this program because dental health is essential for the health of those over 50.
People in the over 50 group are keeping their teeth in better condition and able to keep their natural teeth longer than ever before. But, of course, there are problems that seniors are likely to have to deal with when it comes to their dental health. All adults should maintain regular visits to the dentist and take care of their mental health. There are specific problems that those above 50 need to be aware of in regards to their dental health care. The top five issues related to oral hygiene that seniors face are as follows:
People over 50 often have to deal with cavities. These cavities can also occur around fillings or roots as teeth roots tend to become more exposed and soften as people age. To fix this problem it is important to use fluoride. You could consider a fluoride rinse or something similar. Ask your dentist if that is right for you.
When saliva is not being produced at the normal rate, it can put your teeth at risk. If your mouth feels sticky and you have trouble swallowing, you might have dry mouth. To fix this problem, try to stimulate saliva production by sipping water throughout the day or chewing gum. A dentist can also recommend a prescription for you.
This is a problem that affects many people. If your gums are swollen or bleed easily, you might have gingivitis. This can become a bigger problem over time if left untreated. To fix this problem, maintain regular dentist visits and ask how our Naperville family dentists treat gum disease.
This affects more than 43,000 Americans each year. The risk of oral cancer increases as you get older and is linked to smoking or alcohol use. The best way to deal with oral cancer is prevention. Also, keep up on regular visits to the dentist to screen for the cancer and protect it early.
As people age, their teeth shift. This can make teeth more difficult to clean and be uncomfortable. You should consider seeing an a Naperville cosmetic dentist if this appears to be a problem.
Always consult a dentist at Sherman Oaks Dental to see which treatments might be best for you.
