Common Dental Health Problems

Advancing ages put seniors into many dental health problems, including:

  • Darkening teeth
  • Dry mouth
  • Loss of taste
  • Root decay
  • Gum disease
  • Loss of a tooth or teeth
  • Uneven jawbones
  • Stomatitis caused by dentures
  • Thrush

Understanding and reducing risks of dental health problems is important for senoirs. As seniors are getting older, medical conditions like arthritis can make brushing teeth or flossing teeth difficult and medications taken by seniors also affect their oral health.

Oral Hygiene Tips
