Dental Care for Seniors

Dental Care after Middle Age

Taking good care of our teeth is a lifetime’s work that starts in the earliest years. Proper brushing and flossing, seeing a dentist regularly and watching what we eat and drink are all part of a good dental health regimen that will help teeth last a lifetime. 

However, certain dental problems are more likely in middle age and later. Among these dental issues are:

• Dry mouth

• Gum disease

Seniors may benefit from prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste, which provides extra protection against cavities.
