You Can Maintain Healthy Teeth and Gums for a Lifetime

dca-blog_dentures-rose

Many people enjoy excellent dental health for decades, only to discover that as they grow older, things begin to change. There are some dental health problems that are largely attributable to the aging process and must be addressed as soon as they arise. The good news is that effective dental care strategies exist that can help keep teeth of older individuals healthy well into the future.

Twinges of pain characterize one of the first noticeable dental warning signs experienced by many middle-aged and older patients. Childhood cavities were more common in people of this age group and consequently, so were fillings. As a result, teeth that have been filled in the past are more prone to developing cracks that can harbor bacteria. Receding gum lines that occur with age can also be primary entry points for decay-causing bacteria. Brushing, flossing, using mouth rinses, and routine visits to an affordable dentist are the best ways to avoid this type of pain and treat its causes.

Sensitive teeth are another dental care red flag. Often, the sharp discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold substances is a sign of periodontal disease that has caused gum erosion. Bacterial buildup at the gum line can produce blood when brushing and can also erode tissue and make its way into the bloodstream. This increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and other dangerous conditions. To prevent these outcomes, it is important to seek thorough dental cleanings from an affordable dentist on a regular basis. Diligent flossing can also work wonders in the dental care routine.

One of the most important things to watch for is mouth dryness, which affects large numbers of older people. Saliva is an excellent antibacterial agent that works to ward off acid production in the mouth. It also contains minerals that can strengthen tooth enamel. Many cases can be attributed to common medications that have dry mouth as a side effect, and they may sometimes be solved by a change in prescription. However, tongue scraping and using xylitol-containing gums or candies is one of the best ways to prevent a problem that can be harmful if left unchecked.
