As we age our bodies go through many changes. What we eat, hormonal changes and diseases will affect our oral health. How our teeth age depends on how well we have cared for them over the years. It is important to know that older adults need to continue to focus on prevention of cavities and gum disease. Regular trips to your dentist can help with both of these problems. You can also protect your teeth and gums by the following:

  • Brushing and flossing twice daily
  • Eating a healthy diet and limiting sweets
  • Avoiding smoking and limiting alcohol
  • Visiting your dentist at least every six months
The causes of tooth decay are the same for all ages. Decay happens when the bacteria in plaque feeds on the sugar in our diet to produce acid that can cause cavities. In older adults decay of the tooth root is common because when the gums recede this exposes the softer root surface which decays easier than tooth enamel. Gum disease (periodontal disease) often progresses at a slow pace, over time, with no pain. If gum disease goes undetected it can do a great deal of damage. It is primarily caused by plaque but there are other factors that may increase the risk and severity of the condition. These include:

  • Smoking and smokeless tobacco use
  • Poor diets
  • Food left between teeth
  • Poorly aligned teeth
  • Poorly fitting partial dentures and bridges
  • Systemic diseases
Regular cleanings by your hygienist and check ups by your dentist can help to prevent and even stop gum disease. There is evidence linking gum disease to heart disease, respiratory disorders and strokes. Contact your dentist immediately if you notice any of the following:

  • Constant bad taste or bad breath
  • Bleeding gums when brushing
  • Red, tender or swollen gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Pus in the gums or around the teeth
  • Changes in your bite
  • Changes in how partial dentures are fitting
If you are not seeing your dentist or hygienist because of costs, please contact us and we can give you an approximate estimate to get you looking after your oral health.
