Oral health plays an important part in the well being and overall health of our body. Poor health increases the chances of getting health issues and declines the quality of healthy living. Poor oral health including cavities, decay, teeth wear off, gum diseases, are also linked to medical conditions such as diabetes, heart diseases, and respiratory distress, etc. 

With an increase in age, changes occur within the body so as in the oral cavity as well and causes difficulty in chewing, speaking and smiling, etc. Dental health in the aging requires precise attention and a fine understanding of what needs to be done, and why it is important. 

Having good oral health is beneficial for our mental health, physical health in the long run. 

Maintaining oral health at its optimal level is not a one time process, it takes time, dedication, and consistency. 

As for children and adults, maintaining oral health is crucial in older ages as well. Keeping good oral health in old age requires a multidisciplinary approach. It involves health care professionals from the healthcare profession such as dentists, geriatric nurses, geriatric specialists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers, and other professionals who can educate, spread awareness, advocate and support the older adult individuals to maintain good oral health. 

Taking care of the oral cavity in older adults with physical, sensory, and mental limitations contributes greatly to deteriorate dental health. Special education is required to understand the dental needs and requirements. Our dental health practitioners will assess and provide specific possible guidelines and instructions both to the patients and caregivers.

Dental Concerns for Older Adults

All the soft and hard tissues within the oral may start causing trouble and leaves you with an uncomfortable experience. Some of the dental concerns in older age are as follows:

Decay/Caries

With the time, the teeth become more prone to caries/cavities or decay including all the chewing, in between surfaces. Decay in older adults occurs due to poor oral hygiene, damaged or weak enamel, receding gums, dry mouth, etc. Root caries is more common in older adults. Receding gums exposes the root structures and root structures are more susceptible to bacterial activity and caries.

Gum Diseases

The impact of poor oral health can highly be noticed in gums. All the plaque and tartar negatively affects the gums in addition to the teeth. Initially, stages of gum disease can be treated and reversed but if it is left untreated then irreversible changes occur, such as mobile teeth and ultimately teeth loss.

Dry Mouth

Elders who use medications are at a greater risk of experiencing dry mouth (xerostomia). The saliva production decreases with the use of a certain type of medication and less saliva in the mouth means dry mouth. Saliva is very functional, a great natural lubricant, and acts as a friction-reducing agent. It washes away all the bacteria neutralizing the effect of acid produced by bacteria in the mouth.

Bad Breath

Bad breath could be due to dental (decay, gum diseases, dry mouth, poor oral hygiene) and other health issues (diabetes, stomach issues) as well. All these factors greatly contribute to the exhibition of bad breath (halitosis).

Teeth Wear

With increasing age, teeth become more exposed to teeth grinding and clenching habits. These teeth grinding and clenching habits wear off the enamel layer on the teeth, exposing the dentin (inner layer, next to enamel). The dentine is more responsive to outer stimuli such as cold, hot, pressure, and bacterial activity. Hence, more chances of sensitive teeth, caries, decay, and chewing issues.

Mouth Infections

The immunity tends to decrease with age and the skin becomes less elastic and resilient. The oral cavity becomes more sensitive to bacteria, viral and yeast infections, and delays the healing process.

All these dental concerns for older adults are subject to change and depend on oral habits, personal and social behaviors, the overall health status of individuals. These dental conditions can be prevented, cured, and treated under supervised guidelines and instructions. Our dental group exquisitely provides patient-centered solutions for your dental concerns.
