Oral health care can decline with age. Watch this video or talk to your dentist to learn more about how to maintain superior oral health as a senior.
Just like all dental patients, seniors should visit their dentist at least twice per year for a professional teeth cleaning and check-up. However, you may need to seek more regular dental care if you suffer from certain oral health problems. Seniors are especially likely to have periodontal disease, which can lead to bleeding gums and even tooth loss. Fortunately, with good preventative dental care, you can detect and treat gum disease while its symptoms are still reversible.
