Common Dental Problems Among Senior Citizens

A lifetime of chewing and grinding results in wear and tear of the teeth. Treating dental problems early will prevent chronic health issues as a senior.

Key takeaways:

  • Gingivitis – Gum disease damages the bone around the teeth. This usually leads to tooth loss.
  • Tooth decay and sensitivity – Older adults also get affected by tooth decay and cavities.
  • Oral cancer – As you age, your risk of getting oral cancer increases. This might be caused by some lifestyle choices like smoking.
    • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Also, start seeing your dentist for checkups.
