Senior Dental Care

Seniors may require more dental attention

As we age, our oral health requires far more attention if we hope to keep our teeth and gums looking and feeling their best. Dry mouth, gum disease, and tooth loss can all conspire to rob seniors of the healthy, functioning smile they need to fully enjoy their golden years. Regular dental care for seniors offers the opportunity to prevent the types of oral health problems that can cause feelings of frustration and embarrassment about the state of their smile.

As a Portland senior dentist, Dr. Cardwell understands the challenges seniors face when trying to maintain a healthy smile. Tooth enamel and gum tissue lose a little resiliency as we age, and preventing periodontitis and permanent tooth loss requires seniors receive regular dental care.

Oral health plans for seniors

Commonly prescribed medications, such as those used to treat high blood pressure, nausea, and seizures, can cause dry mouth to develop. A lack of saliva can make eating more difficult, and also enables harmful oral bacteria to do far more damage to tooth enamel, leading to cavities, disease, and tooth loss.

Maintaining a healthy smile means having a dentist who knows how to deal with these types of challenges.
