As you age, it becomes vital that you properly care for your teeth. While strong oral hygiene is important at any age, it is essential that you make your dental care a priority as a senior citizen. There are many serious oral concerns for aging adults, including dry mouth, root decay, uneven bites, and teeth sensitivity. Gum disease is also a serious concern as you age, as more than 75% of adults over the age of 35 have some form of this condition. If left untreated, gum disease leads to tooth loss, resulting in treatment such as dentures or tooth implants at an even younger age.
Age is an important factor in caring for your dental health. As you get older, you are more likely to take multiple medications, you may have a more difficult time brushing or flossing your teeth, and you may even lack motivation or become bored in your dental care habits, all of which impact your oral health.
When you visit us at Markham 7 Dental, we can make sure your teeth are in top condition. We will evaluate your current teeth and provide treatment options to strengthen weak or damaged teeth. We also watch for signs of potential oral conditions such as gum disease and make sure you receive treatment as soon as possible.
