Tips for Maintaining Your Oral Health as You Age

Introduction to Senior Dental Care

Aging affects all parts of the body, including the teeth and gums. At Paul Binon DDS in Roseville, Dr. Paul Binon offers tailored dental care for seniors, focusing on preserving oral health, functionality, and aesthetics. As we age, maintaining oral hygiene becomes even more critical to prevent deantal diseases that can affect overall health and quality of life.

Daily Dental Hygiene for Seniors

Effective oral hygiene for seniors involves more than just brushing and flossing. Dr. Binon recommends electric toothbrushes for easier handling and thorough cleaning. Water flossers can be beneficial for those with arthritis that makes traditional flossing challenging. Fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes are also crucial for protecting aging teeth from decay and gum disease.

Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

Regular dental visits allow Dr. Binon to monitor oral health, catch potential problems early, and provide preventative care that can save teeth. These checkups are vital for managing conditions common in older adults, such as dry mouth, root decay, and gum disease.

Managing Age-Related Dental Issues

Many seniors experience dry mouth due to medications, which can lead to tooth decay if not managed properly. Dr. Binon suggests using saliva substitutes and staying hydrated to mitigate dry mouth symptoms. Additionally, dietary adjustments can help reduce the intake of sugary and acidic foods that contribute to tooth decay.
