Oral Hygiene for Seniors

As you age, so do your teeth. The longer your teeth have had to do their job, the higher the risk that oral diseases and conditions can develop. This is why oral health and hygiene become increasingly important the older you get. Seniors should take special care to avoid uncomfortable and expensive oral health problems. As dental issues do arise, our affordable dental savings program here at All-In-One Dental Plan can help make dental care affordable for seniors in Florida.

Oral Health Risks as You Age

As with any other area of your body, your teeth and mouth tend to show signs of wear and tear as you age. This deterioration can increase your chances of developing oral and dental problems such as:

  • Gingivitis
  • Receding Gums
  • Tooth Loss
  • Dentures
  • Tooth Decay
  • Root Decay
  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Dry Mouth
  • Stained Teeth

These conditions are often uncomfortable and can be very expensive to treat.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene Habits

One of the easiest ways to mitigate these health risks is to establish good oral hygiene habits. Your chances of developing these and other dental issues can be significantly reduced if you brush, floss, and rinse at least twice daily. For many, it is helpful to use toothpaste that contains fluoride to protect teeth from cavities and decay. It is also important to see your dentist for regular check-ups. Due to the progressive nature of many dental conditions, contact your dental provider at the first sign of a problem, such as a tooth ache or enflamed gums.
