Why is Senior Dental Care so Important?
Dental care for seniors is just as important as other physical health care concerns. This is because oral hygiene is repeatedly linked to other health issues. Studies have validated the correlation between gum and heart disease. Early indicators of heart disease have been said to include missing teeth, cavities, and gum disease.
Similarly, gum infections and periodontal disease can be hastened by diabetes. As it is known, diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to respond to insulin and this often causes elevated levels of sugar in the blood. Unfortunately, those with diabetes are more predisposed to gum disease and the advanced loss of teeth. Maintaining low sugar levels is pivotal for good oral health in conjunction with other good dental practices.
Other causes that pose an issue for seniors is the on-set of ill-health and the medications prescribed for it. Unfortunately as seniors continue to age, they become more susceptible to illness and fragility. While this occurs, their trips to the doctor become more frequent and medication is recommended. Prescription medication can often be the cause of various dental problems. Xerostomia also known as dry mouth is one of the most common conditions. With this ordeal, the glands in the mouth that produce saliva work improperly causing the mouth to feel parched. Dry mouth is known for causing bad breath and cavities. The experienced team at Dr. Surya & associates offer multiple treatment options to combat these conditions to improve senior dental care as a whole.
Overall, it is critical that elders and their caregivers place a high regard on dental care for seniors. Conditions such as arthritis and other impairments can weaken a senior’s ability to properly care for their teeth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash are important steps towards good dental hygiene for real teeth and dentures. For seniors, scheduling regular check ups and discussing good dental care practices with a senior’s dentist, are excellent steps towards a clean mouth. Dr. Surya & associates offer professional and consistent dental care services for seniors.
