Special Concerns for Seniors and Oral Health

Posted on 8/15/2015 by Na Xu
A elderly woman smiling about her good oral health.Your oral health is an integral part of your wellbeing throughout your entire life. As you get older, it may get harder to keep your teeth clean or to prevent cavities, which is why it is important to know what to look for as you age in order to prevent the loss of your teeth as you age.

•  Ask for help with your oral health care. If you cannot reach your teeth as well as you used to in order to properly brush and floss, contact us to see how we can help. Sometimes a different toothbrush or assistance with flossing is all that you need. Do not be afraid to ask!
•  Make sure to get to your regularly scheduled dental checkups. If you need assistance in keeping track of your appointments or getting to them, enlist the help of a loved one to help you keep your oral health in check.
•  Let us know about any problems you are experiencing right away. Tooth/gum sensitivity, dry mouth, and difficulty chewing can all be signs of serious oral health issues. The earlier we know about them, the better we can help you keep your oral health intact.

We are here to help you! Do not be afraid to ask questions or ask for a refresher course on proper oral hygiene. As you age, your oral hygiene needs change, so make sure to do what you can to know what you should be doing!

Please call us for your appointment today!
