How does your age affect oral health

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Crossroads Family Dental
How does your age affect oral healthIt is common to see older adults experience numerous dental health challenges such as receding gums, tooth loss, and gum disease. This is caused by numerous factors including underlying health conditions such as diabetes. Therefore, as you age, you can expect to experience one or more dental health issues. You can prevent this by following appropriate dental hygiene habits and regularly visiting our dental clinic.

Receding gums

Receding gums is one major problem facing the older generation. As people start approaching 60 years, they can experience mild to severe recession of gums which can lead to tooth decay and cavities. If you are at this age, it is important to consult with our dentist who will devise the appropriate dental care plan that can slow or prevent further recession of gums.

Diabetes and Oral Problems

Older people are more susceptible to diabetes. Diabetes can lead to a dry mouth and reduced immune system which can cause problems with the healing of dental injuries. This can cause further deterioration of minor dental issues. The dentist will ensure that your age will not defer you from getting the oral health that you deserve.

Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is most prevalent among adults above the age of 45 years. As you age, you, therefore, become more vulnerable to dental health issues such as oral cancer. With old age you have a weaker immune system and this will make you get affected by diseases.

Maintain Regular Dental Visits

Visiting our clinic regularly will be a great way of ensuring that you prevent dental health problems from starting. Call our dental specialists if you suspect that your age is affecting your dental health. We have modern techniques that can help you retain your oral health.
