Specialized Dental Care for Seniors
There are oral health concerns that become more prevalent with age. Individuals over sixty are at higher risk for dry mouth which can contribute to many oral health issues such as tooth decay, gum disease and halitosis . Dry mouth can be caused by health issues, medications and other factors. Other oral health issues that plague seniors include periodontal disease, tooth loss, bone loss, cavities and tooth sensitivity.
