The Importance of Oral Care as We Age

According to a recent study, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that gum disease increases with age, and 70% of adults 65 years and older are affected. Some risk factors for gum disease are:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Stress
  • Defective fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures
  • Taking medications that cause dry mouth
  • Diabetes
  • Heredity
  • Smoking

Research also links gum disease to other conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and pneumonia.  Preliminary reports suggest that gum disease may be linked to Alzheimer’s.

Decay and oral cancers can become more prevalent as we age.  One out of every four persons aged 65 and older has dental decay.  The National Institute of Health reports oral cancer rates for adults aged 60-69 is 33.9% and those aged 70+ is 40.2%.
