Oral Health for Seniors

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout uses a question and answer format to educate people about oral health and the aging process. It identifies specific changes to oral health that take place as people mature, and how treatment and preventive methods may need to change as well. It discusses the importance of regular preventative visits with a dentist to keep teeth clean and white, keep fillings in good repair, control the progression of gum disease and recession, and counteract the effects of dry mouth. The document offers tips to help seniors maintain a healthy lifestyle and good oral health, and recommends dental check-ups to prevent and detect problems resulting from the aging process.
