Due to advances in medicine average life expectancy continues to increase. It is essential that older adults practice and maintain good oral hygiene. There is a strong correlation between oral health and overall health. Studies show that maintaining a healthy mouth may help prevent diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

 

Seniors face many challenges to their oral health that is not as common in the younger patient. Problems such as root decay, gingivitis, dry mouth, and oral cancer are good examples.

 

People who do not have teeth still need to visit a dentist regularly. Many aspects of oral health in older adults, such as adjusting dentures for a more comfortable fit and oral cancer screenings, can be addressed at routine dental visits. The best way to achieve and maintain good oral health is to visit your dentist twice a year.
