Preventing Dental Problems As You Grow Older
In senior years, our teeth and mouth require extra care to make sure they remain functional and in good health.
- Prevent dry mouth and you’ll reduce the chances of developing tooth decay. Do this by limiting your sugar intake and drinking plenty of water.
- Invest in an electric toothbrush if you have arthritis or mobility problems.
- Get treatment for osteoporosis and diabetes, as these conditions can affect your dental health.
You should also keep regular appointments with your dentist to replace old dental work and get preventative treatments.
