Good Oral Health Maintenance for Senior Citizens
Excellent dental cleaning habits at home and regular trips to the dentist can help your teeth last for many years to come. Half of all Americans suffer some form of periodontal disease or gum disease. Without early treatment, this can cause serious bone loss of your upper and lower jaw, as well as tooth damage or loss.
Early detection is very important, since the early stages of periodontal disease are completely reversible with proper care and treatment. Seniors are often more susceptible to problems with their gums and teeth for various reasons, including pre-existing medical conditions and certain prescription medications.
Everyone, from the youngest to the most seasoned, should follow these three basic guidelines recommended by our registered dental hygienists and the leading dentists around the country. Dr. Hauser caters to his patients and makes sure they are happy and discusses a plan to bring back your oral health so you can live, pain-free, many more years to come.
Here’s What You Can Expect at Lakefront Family Dentistry
When You Come in for a Regular Teeth Cleaning
How to Maintain a Healthy Mouth and Smile
- Brush 2 times daily with toothpaste containing fluoride (prescription strength fluoride is available)
- Floss every day, preferably after every meal
- Visit your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings
Common Challenges Faced by Seniors
Even with good dental maintenance habits, seniors face certain challenges and health risks that may affect their oral cavity state. Fortunately, many of these conditions are successfully and routinely treated by doctors and dentists.
During a routine visit, you will also meet with our registered dental hygienist, who will ask general questions about your overall health and any pre-existing conditions that will help us better assess any oral damage and recommend proper treatment. Often, conditions affecting other parts of the body may affect dental health.
Common Dental Problems Faced by Many Seniors Include:
Increased tooth sensitivity
As we get older, the gums naturally begin to recede. This may cause parts of the tooth not protected by enamel to become exposed. Without the thick, durable layer of enamel protection, one may experience an increased sensitivity to hot and/or cold. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth may help relieve symptoms. However, if sensitivity persists, please visit a dentist, as there may be an underlying cause, such as cavities or gum disease.
Xerostomia, or dry mouth, is a condition affecting nearly 20% of elderly citizens. The cause of this condition is not related to age, but mainly caused by side effects from medication and radiation exposure from cancer treatments. Without proper treatment, xerostomia can lead to cavities and other serious problems affecting the mouth.
Pre-existing medical conditions
Conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes can have an adverse effect on the oral cavity. Many of the medications associated with treatment for these problems are often directly responsible for issues in the mouth.
